Trying out some new geometry concepts on this bike. Also first go with the new 3D printed chainstay yokes. So far so good!

Here are the important numbers on this bike:


I had pretty similar front end geo on my squish bike that I built last Spring and really loved it. So far it's feeling awesome on the hardtail, though Montana riding in the Winter is pretty limited.

Are those 29x2.6 Minions? how do you like them?
i am considering going from 3.0 down to something a tad smaller and knobby.

These are actually the 3.0's. They measure 2.8 though. I have run the 2.6's on other bikes and like them, though they only measured in at 2.5" for me, they are a touch larger diameter than the 2.5" WT, but I wish the 29x2.8" Minions were easier to find these days. I found that to be a good size.

Steel gravel frame headed to get painted by Pucci. Real excited to see what he does with it.

Love the mix of Ritchey and S&S connectors on the Ti travel bike. Seems like a really smart combo that saves some weight and moolah...

Thanks! Only way to do it with my curvy top tubes as well. It takes a lot of work to fabricate the seat tube coupler, but I really love how they turn out. I have another cool Ti travel bike coming up in the queue pretty quick here.

This project has been in the works for quite a while. Really sweet to see it come together!

I first built a pair of "modern-ish" bullmoose bars for one of my bikes years ago and people have been begging for them since. doing these in custom geo and getting everything right is incredibly hard. So I designed and built a single bar geometry to use and the tooling to make them as well. So cool to see this from start to finish. Off to the plater now...
