29 with clearance for 27.5+ seems to be all the rage these days. Fun way to have 2 bikes in one (though IMO the 27.5×3, 29×2, 26×4 bike is the way to go if you really want the Swiss army knife effect!) This one is an all-arounder with Rohloff capabilities as well as the usual […]
29/27.5+ with Rohloff/SS/geared capabilities, fun times. Cleaned up and vented for DT welding-in Fluxy Like a boss Front end Toptube oxide rainbows
Yes, correct saddle height. I’m a freak. A few days ago I posted a quick picture of the bike I’m calling “BRAAP”. I’ll let you decide if that’s an acronym, and if so, what it stands for (Big Rowdy Alces Alces Proletarian?) But I can say that taken as a whole, it stands for super, […]
Nice job, Andy and Mike! And thanks to Mike’s wife, I’m guessing, for the pictures! RAL 5015… Happy Jack, I think.
I don’t know if Mark is actually doing the GDR, but this is the sort of bike I’d use if I was. 29+, Rohloff, rigid but with a lot of front end cush – not much to go wrong but about as much passive suspension and comfort as you can get. Day in the woods? […]
There are some caveats, but man this thing is going to be fun when it’s done! And no, that swingarm won’t be attached to this frame. I just bolted it up to play around and give it a little night ride test. 2001 LX cranks are still awesome. Cable guides? Who needs cable guides?
Backyard dual slalom Gal’s FR 29er Sorry, I meant “enduro” MUNI! Another ~400 or so reasons to come visit and build a frame…

Everything good enough to ride like you mean it, but nothing blingy. Monday: Dream Build! 2015 Dirtbag Build: No pedals, no saddle, shipping not included.

Hey, 2015 is… more than half over. And I finally got around to doing a new set of build kits. Here’s this year’s “Smart” money kit. Notes: no pedals or saddle, shipping not included. GX cranks may be unappealing to some, but you’re better off spending that money elsewhere IMO. Front derailleurs are still dead. […]
