29er+ Frame Set for Sale! - $800

This frame is super light, hand built right here in beautiful Minneapolis with Columbus Aero Tubing and made to tightly fit a maximum tire size of 3.0 Knards. It could easily handle 26x2.+ or 650bx2.5 with clearance for fenders, mounts for front and rear racks, and would make a great winter bike/commuter. It is designed for a tall (6ft) rider. It is comparable to a Marin Muirwoods 29er, but sits up higher (with bigger tires on it). 4130 Chromoly steel with Matte 'midnight black' powder coat finish. Even has a custom dog leash tie bracket!

This week: Designing David's 29er+ Part 2 and AK's Track fork

I'm excited to put together a 1-1/8" Track fork for AK's 2008 Bowery. I'll be sure to post pics.

Also, in the news, some of the numbers we entered into the equation for David's frame were incorrect, and we didn't catch it until after it was painted!

What does that mean? I will be building David an even better frame with the new (and correct!) numbers, and selling off the 29er+ Columbus Life Aero Tube Frame at a great price. Details to come, and, oh yes, pictures!
