Wow, those are big bikes. Those two look great and the funny thing is that the huge hydraulic Shimano levers do not at all look out of proportion

Awesome. Just rolled over 37000 miles on my Strong custom built in 2003. Same Campy Chorus 10 group , DT handbuilt wheels. Go to bike not because of weight or carbon wheels, the thing fits PERFECTLY, so much so my Cervelo that has a weight advantage is hanging on a hook in my basement. Thanks Carl...

Seems like my last post was just yesterday. Look at all those ISO brake bikes Things change fast in the bike world.

The most common thing I'm building these days is titanium disc All-Roads. All-Road meaning tires size up to about a 37-38ish and geo that is as close to a road bike as possible while accomodating the added tire clearance.

Here are some of the more recent builds that have gone out of the shop.

Titanium All-Road/Shimano Ultegra Di2/Enve Cockpit and G23's:

Here is something a little bit more in the Monster Cross vein. It takes tires up to about 2.5" and has routing for a dropper post.

And I'd call this a true Gravel Bike with 650b wheels and tire clearance up to about 2".

Here are some of the more recent builds that have gone out of the shop.

Man, that is so cool! A few quick questions regarding this post (and a few others).

1) What is the gearing on that Monster Cross bike? I thought about that type of build for awhile. For me the limiting factor was the gearing. Here in NorCal, our gravel is really very steep dirt. So, I wouldn't want anything more than a 32t up front, even given a massive pie plate in back. But that precludes riding extensively on asphalt. I think a double chainring works best for a drop bar bike, at least where I live. Thoughts?

2) I notice some of the bikes have a much more pronounced TT slope. Is that by request? I worked with my builder (some dude named Erik...you might know him) to get less slope.

3) Your head badge. One of the best in the business. Classy, classy, classy. It would make my top five in a heart beat, along with Breadwinner, Ahearn, Moots, and Alliance (a little "home team" boosterism there...but still true)

Also, what is the gearing on this bike? Where is it primarily ridden? (topography, etc..) Thx.
