So a few weeks back in the middle of Matt’s Huntsman I got the flu which knocked me off my feet for a week. Back at it and finished up his build. So there was a bit of stop and start with this build before it was off to the powder shop. Things came together smoothly despite the week off. What was tricky about this build for me was that it was a singlespeed and sports fenders – so hitting the mark for positioning of the fender mounts was a nice challenge but also working in enough wiggle room to remove the wheel was equally as challenging. I think we hit things “just so”. This will be Matt’s daily driver in Portland, OR so fenders for wet weather are a must as is a front rack for hitting grocery duties and the all important end of the week beverage hauler. Segmented fork is from Mike Flanigan at A.N.T. Bikes. (Thanks Mike!!). Frame, fork, rack and bars will be powdered in Team 44 “Back in Black” matte black. Fenders will be gloss black. Components will be a nice mix of White Industries, Chris King, Thomson, Paul Components and a few others. Color scheme is shaping up to be black (mostly) with hits of white and silver. Should be a nice build. More on this one once the frame returns to 44HQ later this week from powder.
