Hoss's Custom Titanium 27.5 plus mountain bike

This custom mountain bike project was a fun one!

I received a call a few months back from fellow named Keith, who was looking for a birthday present for a friend of his. Sounds like a good friend, eh?

We worked together to plan out this awesome mountain bike for Hossein to ride. The custom titanium frame is designed as a nice all arounder that will shine especially well on the long flowy trails with occasional techy sections - where it will mostly be ridden. The plus tires (seated on Enve's M6040 plus rims) should provide lots of comfort and traction and the 140mm fork won't let it get pushed around.

We went with a Shimano 1x11 drivetrain and a OneUp Components cassette extender. Hossein really likes the Shimano interface, but wanted that big gear for slow spins up long climbs.

Lots or Made in USA Components like the White industries crankset and headset as well as King hubs and a PAUL Stem top off the build. Good stuff all around!

This bike screams dream bike, or at least it does to me. It was a really fun ride to build and I can not wait to see it put to use!

Scott's Custom!

This bike is nice.

Scott wanted a hardtail to shred around Ft. Collins, CO. We decided on an agressive, playful geometry that works well with the 29+ platform, or regular 29" tires on the Ibis 41mm carbon rims. 

I built Scott the Frame, stem and rigid fork. Although he may put a suspension fork on eventually, and the geometry is optimized to work well for that too.

Scott decided to go with some really cool features on his frame. Internal routing for a stealth dropper post (although he is not running one right now), internal rear brake and internal rear mech. in case he ever decides to run gears. We also decided on a chainstay yoke for a 73mm bottom bracket shell and a tapered head tube.

Nice lines, and my extensive parking lot test ride shows that this should be a REALLY fun bike for Scott! I hope to hear about the adventures it goes on. Enjoy the gallery below:
