“Sam Hill Fast” standard

So Yuri’s complete 29er was delivered this past Wednesday June 20th. Summer Solstice mind you. A good date. We spoke after its safe arrival and he had it reassembled, patiently waiting for the weekend while he pulled father duty for the rest of the week with his new born son Oli. He was pretty beside himself with excitement from what I could tell over the phone. This is not Yuri’s first bike but it happens to be his first custom and his first 29er. Those are key to the conversation. Apparently he also started a new job too this past week. To add to the injury of his wait, a friend took a parking lot victory lap ride even before ...

standard

As you may have read previously, I recently finished up Yuri’s 29er. Thought I’d share a build check video short with all of you giving you an inside look at some of the details of the build. I’ll post up more pics soon. Till then, enjoy!

Internal Cable Routing standard

Working on another 29er. This one sports a more traditional diamond frame look but I’m putting some special touches like a radius seat tube for 16″ stays, deeply formed seat stays that will be pretty swoopy and last but not least internal cable routing. Really stoked on how this is coming together. More soon… Internal Cable Routing, originally uploaded by 44 Bikes.

Ultralight Bike Packing on the Mind standard

So I’ve been bitten by the bike packing bug recently. I like hiking. It’s fun. But I absolutely love riding my bike… Being in the woods WITH my bike? Forget about it. I’m in my element. I recall as a Boy Scout, out on a troop hike for a long weekend on the Appalachian Trail, hiking along with 40lbs of gear on my back IMAGINING I’m on my bike. Hopping rocks, railing turns, climbing hills, burning down singletrack. If I found myself alone I’d even mimic holding a pair of handlebars. It somehow made the task at hand less work and more fun. And that is how I feel on a bike: it’s not work, it’s just plain fun. Combining ...

29er with 16″ Stays standard

Building up a 29er now that sports Paragon Machine Works Post Mount Sliders that will handle 16″-16.8″ of adjustability. On a 29er mind you. Radius seat tube. Internal cable routing. 120mm Fox fork with 15m QR. Should be sickness. Here’s a few shots of the build progress: Feel free to contact me with any questions or if you are interested in a custom frame: 603-654-2005, or email: khenry@44bikes.com

Building, Paint and more standard

Been a while as I’ve been busy with a few builds, finalizing a few prototype bike bags and sorting parts for a complete headed to North Carolina later this week. I also got the fat bike back from paint and built up. I’ll let the pic’s speak for themselves: Powder was handled by the good folks at Extreme Powdercoating in Merrimack, NH. THe color is a 2 stage candy (silver with a translucent top coat). I’m very much looking forward to this winter. I’m downright excited for snow now. I’ll just have to crush rocks, mow over saplings and chase varmints in the meantime. Next up are some sneak peaks of Yuri’s build progress. His frame came back from paint ...
