Lori’s Allroad

Lori selected a partial paint scheme on her titanium allroad. She’ll be building the frame up with Shimano GRX and 38mm tires.

Rick’s Allroad

Rick’s 650b Allroad is built with Campagnolo Chorus 12 speed, Whiskey 1 1/8th fork, Ritchey cockpit, and Wolftooth finishing kit. I laced the wheels using White Industries hubs, DT rims, and Sapim CX ray spokes. Those are setup tubeless with Rene Herse 42mm tires

Gary’s Titanium Road Bike

Christian’s Steel Allroad

Christian’s Allroad is headed to New York

Andy’s Butted Titanium Road Bike

Light and stealthy rim brake road frame headed to Bend, OR. Butted tubing, Tri-Tone etched finish and swoopy stays. The customer has an awesome build planned for this one! The frame easily clears 28mm tires and has geometry suited to racking up the miles.

This bike was inspired by an ultralight steel frame I made for him a few years back. There’s a few tweaks, but for the most part they are pretty similar. He still owns and loves the steel bike, so I’m excited to hear his back to back comparison of the two materials.

Graham’s Steel Road

Sean’s Down County 29er

Sean’s down country 29er is ready to go: 120mm front, 105mm rear

Rockshox SID fork and rear shock, Shimano XTR, Enve M6 wheels/bar/stem, 180mm OneUp dropper, and all the matte black Chris King goodies

Zac’s Gravel Bike

Kevin’s Hybrid Full Suspension

Mullet Bikes: business in the front/party in the rear.

Cliche aside, I think a lot of people will find their happy place with this combo.

27.5 rear wheel : 148mm rear travel

29 front wheel : 150mm or 160mm fork

I built this bike for the Builders Roundup hosted by Enve. It was great working with Kevin (an Enve employee) on this. I’m also really excited and interested in the dual wheel size mtbs.

1998 Schwinn Homegrown Factory Tribute

The Schwinn Homegrown Factory was THE bike in 1998. I have such a fond memory of it, that I decided to recreate the aesthetic on a modern hardtail.

The original Homegrown was made by Yeti in Colorado out of aluminum. This frame is made out of titanium. Mostly because that’s what I work with and I like the ride quality. The frame features modern geo and 29 inch wheels, so I guess it’s not that historically accurate. However, it’s way more fun to ride!

I modified the bonus tomato to be a bonus potato. Mr. Potato Head to be exact. A homage to my Idaho roots.

Matte grey M950 XTR was the default high end kit, so I went 12 speed XTR M9100. Not a bad upgrade!!!!

All the finish work is done in luscious liquid paint. I’m glad Ollie at Dark Matter paint had my back on this one. He’s the best. I wasn’t concerned about masking any areas off. The more bass boat sparkle the better! I also painted a 140mm travel Pike to match the original SID fork. The go to XC race fork at the time.

This project was all about catching the vibe from the peak of XC racing.  A very fun time for mountain bikes.  Both the sport and bikes have advanced since then, but it’s fun to look back on where we came from.
