Starte Paul’s 29er this past week. Things are coming together nicely. This will start life as a singlespeed 29er but eventually, Paul would like the option to run a 1×10 setup. No problem! Building this rig up with a pair of Paragon Machine Works hooded sliders (post mount option). Options include 44mm head tube, radius seat tube, one bottle mount and of course signature 44 Bikes sweetness…

Paul's 29er Tacked

Will be fitting and tacking the seat stays in place this afternoon. Weldfest to follow. More soon on that build!

Damon picked up his complete singlespeed commuter death mobile this past saturday. It was great to meet him, share stories and break bread. On his way north, he stopped in NYC to pick up his registration for the 5 Borough’s ride which was this past sunday. Pick custom bike up saturday – ride it 40 miles the next day. Not a bad deal! Another stoked client…

Another stoked client...

And of course, been tweaking my personal setup a bit. Addition of tubeless has been amazing and the wolftooth components chainring has been working flawlessly (and I’ve been throwing everything including the kitchen sink at it…). New saddle as a previous build for a client in 2012 sported one of these suckers. A test ride to check fit/adjustments had me sold. So far so good. Enjoy.

State of the build...
