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!

Custom Steel Bikepacking 29er Mountain Bike

This build is fresh from Circles & Co in Japan! 

This custom steel 29er mountain bike frame was designed to be a versatile all around ride. Using Paragon Machine Works sliding dropouts the bike can be run as a single speed, or be run with gears as pictured with a Shimano 1x11 speed drive train. The Signature swoopy front triangle provides a nice comfy ride while also allowing extra space for a frame bag. The custom segmented and tapered steel fork will make for a nice comfy ride and the anything cage mounts provide space for hauling extra gear on long bike packing trips.

Though pictured with 29" wheels, this bike will also run 27.5+

Circles chose the awesome curry-colored paint and decked out the build with awesome components from Chris King, White Industries, King Cage and so many other good bits. 

This should be a great bike for Mr. Murata in Nagoya, and I am excited to see it shredding around Japan!
