Matt’s 29er

February 25th, 2013

Allow me to introduce Matt’s 29er. We are big fans of repeat customers – among other things, they are our most reliable test-beds to see how our bikes hold up, what fitting or handling tweaks me might consider, etc. I built a cross bike for Matt back in September 2010, but now he was ready for some more serious off-road action. Here it is:


Those are Black Cat Rocker dropouts, and some fun paint (three color logo!) that was Matt’s idea. Here are some pics in progress, including making sure that the fork cleared the down tube:


I also painted a new Mostowy, an old Bottecchia, a suspension fork, and am building a 20″ fork for a folding bike. All well and good, but some of us can’t wait for spring:

Next: Alfredo’s coupled road bike, and Mark’s belt-drive internal-geared commuter!

    That’s gorgeous. What’s the Head Tube/Seat Tube angles, and Chainstay length?
