Materials – Carbon
This custom carbon cyclocross bike uses our “Carbon Everything” design. This design includes carbon fiber dropouts, cable guides, seat stay bridge and disc tab (all made in-house). To offset muddy CX conditions, a “clean” look is what I was after. By minimizing the exposed cables and having smooth joints and frame parts, a bold and simple look was executed. Notable features: -Smooth tapered joints -Fully internal cable routing, for a clean aesthetic (especially at the seat tube) -White composite panel logos, cut by hand (a paint free finish -Disc brakes -Dual seat stays (non-wishbone) -Custom molded carbon dropout, made in-house -”AppleStem” integrated handlebar, stronger/lighter/stiffer/safer/smoother than bolted on handlebars.
