I went to engineering school with Brandon up at Montana State, so it was cool to hear from him about having a frame built this past fall. Brandon now lives in Oklahoma and was wanting a bike to get out on the awesome gravel roads and paths and sometimes singletrack that he rides there.
We designed this bike with all day comfort and handling in mind, but keeping it fun and capable when single track needs to be shredded.
The frame uses a combination of Colombus and Vari-wall steel for a nice light build. Brandon decided to deck the bike out in very nice parts like the White Industries Crank set, Enve post and bar and Chris King bearings all around.
As pictured the bike is set up with 700x45c tires, but it will also clear a 27.5 x 2.1" tire.
I love the Matte blue and orange color on here as well. Matte powder with a paint matched fork.
This should be a great bike for Brandon and I can't wait for him to get it out on the road. I have to say I am a little jealous myself!
