Ready for their final prep

Repeat customer coming back for a Huntsman to round out his stable. He had me build a 29er the previous season. So up above is pretty much everything you need to build a bike with the exception of the seat stays (I typically make those once the bike is all tacked together to get the bends exactly where I want them). Paint or powder is still up in the air with this one, but it will sport Sram Force 22, Stan’s new Grail wheel set, ENVE Cross Taper Disc Fork, Thomson Bars, stem and handlebars as well as seat collar and Cane Creek will pull head set duties. This ones classic Huntsman: Meant for gravel and longer group rides, a big nod to comfort and control with a mix of quick handling and relaxed feel. This isn’t a race bike but it would hold it’s own in the pack. Maybe even take the lead and show ’em who’s boss… Few from the build as it comes together:
