standard

So these were a long time coming. Phil Wasson over at SUPER RAT MACHINE put the pedal to the metal with the nails on these puppies and machined them up from my cad files. STOKED. They came out beautifully, and I just can’t wait to build up the more refined version of the 29er I’ve been working on. Actually it will be how i originally intended it to be, but given the time frame and funds I had at the time, some exceptions had to be made. But with some patience and time, (which i have..) things will come together nicely. These allow you to run gears or singlespeed setup without any extra parts or sliding bits. I really like ...

DIRT ROADS AND ALIGNMENT standard

This ones on the alignment table and lookin’ pretty good with minimal cold setting to be done. In the process of making myself a new dirt road rambler. We’ve got a HUGE network of dirt roads in our neck of the woods, and being that I absolutely love to have dirt between me and the hoops i ride, this makes for a super fun backwoods road bike. No skinny tires here-we’re talkin’ 2.3 Exi-Wolves. In other words a 29er. But set up with drop bars and singlespeed aplenty. This ones going to be pretty nice with Paragon Sliders. Can’t wait to finish her up and paint the town red..
