Gold GRV Profile.jpg

GRV

The GRV is a no-holds-barred drop bar bike. It can go wherever you point it. Pavement. Gravel. Whatever. Take the road less traveled. Hell. Where you’re going, there may not even be roads. A strong will and a trace of hope that a connection can be made are the only other things you’ll need.

This bike is specially suited for coarse roads as it employs my FlyBy design. It’s different than a traditional double diamond bike frame because the seatstays bypass the seat tube and connect directly into the top tube. The top tube also incorporates a short section of curved tube. These two traits, the stays and the curved tube, effectively decouple the seat tube, allowing a small degree of deflection along the length of the tube. It works when the rider is pedaling in the saddle and the bike hits a bump with force great enough that the rider's weight on the lever, the seatpost, can cause a rearward movement on the seat tube as the curved top tube, the spring, is forced to extend a tiny amount. 

The FlyBy design provides a greater degree of comfort during seated pedaling, and there is otherwise no detriment to the performance of the bike. It's very good on cobbled roads and over other sharp edged features such as exposed roots. It’s perfect for long days in the saddle when you know that the road (or otherwise!) could potentially be tough going.

The GRV can accommodate 40mm tires even with a short 420mm chainstay. It can be built around a carbon thru-axle fork or with a custom, steel segmented fork as shown. Head tube options (34mm/44mm) are specified to suit fork steerer dimensions.

Green Non-8594.jpg

Non

In this era of suspension and gadgetry, the Non is a refreshing look forward that reminds us of where we’ve been and all those great miles we’ve ridden. Perhaps it reminds you of your first mountain bike. Perhaps you’ve never ridden one like it. It’s name comes from the fact that it is bereft of any rear suspension ingredients of any kind. As you can see, it’s a simple and tidy hardtail.

Don’t let that purity fool you into thinking it’s just good for lazy efforts to the park. This is a bike made to be ridden with intent. Wanna go fast with zero energy loss? You best get one of these.

You can order it as a geared bike or as a dedicated single-speed as you see it here. It can even be built to go both ways through the selection of the bottom bracket shell and/or dropout options. The bike shown uses a Pressfit30 shell with an eccentric for chain tensioning duties. It can be built around suspension forks in the 100-140mm travel range. You could also go fully rigid with a suspension corrected rigid fork if you’re into that sort of thing! I offer custom forks to match.

The Non will accommodate up to 29 x 2.4” tires even with a short 430mm chainstay. Standard specs include a 44mm straight headtube, two water bottle mounts, and an English threaded bottom bracket.

Embo

Search those wide open spaces for pristine trail bounty on an Embo. This is a bike for all day adventures on known terrain or otherwise. It’s a real deal mountain bike with longish geometry to keep that front wheel in front of (and underneath) you when you tilt it down into the abyss and let go.

This bike is perfect for tortuous trails as it employs my FlyBy design. It’s different than a traditional double diamond bike frame because the seatstays bypass the seat tube and connect directly into the top tube. The top tube also incorporates a short section of curved tube. These two traits, the stays and the curved tube, effectively decouple the seat tube, allowing a small degree of deflection along the length of the tube. It works when the rider is pedaling in the saddle and the bike hits a bump with force great enough that the rider's weight on the lever, the seatpost, can cause a rearward movement on the seat tube as the curved top tube, the spring, is forced to extend a tiny amount. 

The FlyBy design provides a greater degree of comfort during seated pedaling, and there is otherwise no detriment to the performance of the bike. It's very good on rocky trails and over other sharp edged features such as exposed roots. It’s perfect for long, hard days in the saddle.

The Embo can accommodate up to 29 x 2.4” tires with a short 430mm chainstay. It can be built around suspension forks in the 120-140mm travel range. The 44mm headtube is reinforced for strength and durability. Go ahead. Rally as hard as you like!

Gemini

The Gemini is the go-to bike for carving up berms at the pump track, laying down big whips at the dirt jumps, or doing big-ups downtown. It’s simple. It’s tough. It’s 100% fun! It’s a big kid’s bike. Now get out there and waste a few hours ‘til dinnertime!

It can be built around a suspension fork (100mm travel typical) or a custom segmented fork as shown here. The 44mm headtube is reinforced to take the hits and keep on trucking. Plus, it allows the use of a straight 1-1/8” or tapered 1-1/8” - 1-1/2” steerer. When was the last time you needed a seat adjustment on your DJ bike? That’s what I thought. For the ultimate in clean lines, this bike is built with a fixed seatmast. It employs a Thomson two-bolt seat clamp so you can adjust the tilt and know that it will stay that way even if you blow a no-footer and land like a beached walrus on the saddle. This bike gets 26” wheels for super-easy manuals and the best stiffness and durability. So go ahead and shred!
