since a while i am thinking about getting myself an allround bike.
One that does it all.
I have to many bikes that are just to fragile, valuable or just to dear to me to use these hardcore offroad.
I have decided that i want to have myself a custom titanium 29er made;
It has to be the best of 3 worlds; Titanium, 29 and retro look and feel
My wish list :
- 29er titanium , butted
- Sloping frame
- not suspension corrected, i do not like the look of the enormous gap between frame and fork
- Disc brakes
- Rohloff rear hub
- Internal cable rooting
- Partial painted (baby blue)
- Jones bar
- Something different; builders own idea
Actually ,..i am looking for a Fat Chance Yo Eddy in 29" ;)
The builders I am thinking of:
- Kent Eriksen
- Groovy Cycleworks
- Black Sheep
- Steve Potts
- Jim Kish
The last one; Jim Kish , is my favourite
My good friend Aaron has one and i am totally impressed with Jim's work.
Check this one out, isn't it pretty?
Just to give you an idea what i like : here some example's
