Wow this is killer! I am not a huge fan of unpainted bikes but with the polishing this is slick. Love the fork detail and slight curvature of the blades too.

Thank you, I think I too am in the same camp these days, I like me some color. However, for an off-road bike, this seems like a good idea to prevent paint chips.

That looks like a metric ton of elbow grease applied to a frame. That shine...

Looks great; one-of-a-kind.

The proportions on this look just right to my eye.

This really hits a sweet spot for beautiful, but rugged.

The gravel is saying "We're not worthy!"

Thank you everyone. The fun part of building frames is I can test ideas on myself and friends before selling them to others. The stainless gravel frame was just that, I wanted to test the 3/8's seat stays and flat mount front fork. I am confident in its ability to perform, however I likely will not do another full polished one unless someone has a lot of time to wait and a lot of money to spend

I love the fork. Such a refreshing change from carbon.

Moving is hard enough but moving a house and shop is a nightmare. Haven't been working on bikes much in the last month but I was able to get some photos of this allroad gravel grinder, here's a sneak peek.

I will take it! Seriously, can't wait to see the rest. That color looks pretty sweet from what I can see.

I had not comment on that SS bike, it is probably one of favorite bikes of the year. Looks fantastic AR, doing killer work. If its a 57-ish, do let me know when you want to pass it on

More pics to come soon. The stainless gravel bike was a proof of concept idea and it is earning its keep. Unfortunately for you it has a 55cm tt.
