I've had my eyes on one of these for a while, so cool to one in the wild! Ample cable guides for 1x11?

these are batch built, so probably aligned and tacked up prior to this. if so, doing four welds in 24 minutes doesn't seem insane. my sense of bike building is that everything else takes far longer than the welding itself. however, I'm not a welder/bike builder...

regardless, this bike is awesome! excellent do-all bike and a great way to celebrate your move to a new part of the country! congrats!

very cool, i think this would be rad with 1x11. im digging my 1x11 setup, it goes anywhere.

how do you like riding with normal bars like that? i think i would struggle to get into it. but i dont MtN bike either

I'm digging mtb risers, as a someone who enjoys trails and tomfoolery more than being a cat 5 commuter.

I've got the rear der hanger on, and plan to be 1x11 before spring. So stoked!

RAD. As far as custom goes I have never pulled the trigger. But from a boutique bike builder, Id say I would also definitely try something like this route. Looks fun!

Nice bike. I looked at them awhile ago and went another direction.
As far as the welding goes, 25 mins is pretty good. I can TIG a 4" SS .065 tubing joint in less them 5 mins with a fuse on the first pass and filler wire on the second. With the bike tubing I would think they are also 2 passing the welds so as not to put too much heat in the weld zone and get some pulling as it cools.
Enjoy the ride, they look like awesome bikes.

These bikes are too cool, I checked out the prototype when it rolled through LA a couple of months ago.

I'm not really a mountain biker, but I like the idea of having basically an XC bike from 10 years ago - 2"-ish tires, flat bars, rigid fork, and a huge gear range. This would be a great all-rounder behind a road and cross bike for commuting, crusing, and mountain riding not including jumps and such. Can't wait to see how it builds up with multiple gears!
