Fillet brazed 29er

I am not normally the mountain bike builder here at Circle A but I was more than happy to take this one on for Jared as I’ve built him a bike before. And I also just built a mixte for his wife Sara. This big hardtail 29er is the polar opposite of that mixte. It was built up with a SRAM X9 group and a Rock Shox Reba RLT fork. It’s ready for some roots and mud in the great white north!

This Somec Promax frameset came to us from overseas for a repaint. There were also alignment issues with the frame. Aligning any imperfections in a Columbus Max frame is pretty tough. But with enough coercion the frame was straightened and repainted the specified Sport Classic Grau.

I had made a unique low rider rack for our friend Benno some time ago. This time, our friend Ken was looking for something similar for his Circle A. I built the same rack but added a small strut from the rear for stability. We’ll definitely be testing this out on some short tours this spring!


And Francine had me repaint her S&S coupled Waterford. This unassuming dark blue definitely makes the silver couplers and components pop.
