Shhh, don’t tell Neko Mulally. He seems to like the combo in certain situations. Mainly steeps over the back wheel.

Temp and pressure sensors most likely. Seen on a few other bikes, namely Danny’s if I recall correctly

Curious to see how strong flax can be in this situation. Looks like Porsche is using it for non structural parts such as panels and wings. It’s been used in the ski industry as a “more eco friendly” version of fiberglass. Never heard anything about the ... more »

Evoc bike bag as a replacement for a bike box is an incredible idea. Obviously some of the cost of this will be passed on to the consumer, but it's a very nice touch.

Bike geo is very with the times, would love to test that linkage set up.

That's the plan, Roots. The wheelset I have built and ready already has an xd driver so I'll throw a gx cassette on there because why pay for a $120 project321 standard driver just to be able to run a boat anchor cassette, would rather drop $200 on a gx cassette right out of the gate....more

Awesome to listen to this! As someone who quit high school to learn how to weld, is obsessed with bikes, and has multiple jobs solely based around building things with my hands, Frank has not been a small influence to me, haha. Cool to hear his whole story in one place.

When I first really started to understand what I was doing on a bike, 8-9 years ago. Everything I rode was sub 400 maybe a touch over. Next two bikes were 430-435. Now 453 and 470. I find a stem and reach combined around 500-510, currently feels like ... more »
