Curve GXR – Werner

Once again another superb Curve GXR titanium custom bike we made for Werner. For the wheels we used the silent Onyx Vesper rear hub and SON Dynamo in front laced to Beast GR25 carbon rims made in Germany. Tufo Thundero tires offer puncture protection while still being fast and offering a lot of grip. For stem and cockpit we choose ENVE carbon parts. Groupset is a SRAM AXS Rival / Eagle Mullet that offers a wide range in every situation. A White Industries headset is a nice addition to a high end bike like this. Supernova lights allow long rides in the dark! SILCA Nastro handlebar tape an Fizik Vento Argo saddle finish the bike nicely.

Stanton Sherpa – Nico

Following the Titan version we made a Stanton Sherpa Cromo build for Nico. British racing green frame works together perfectly with silver Hope Tech hubs laced to Duke Lucky Star rims, headset and silver Ritchey classic cockpit. Shimano XT drivetrain is well proven and Wolfpack tyres provide grip in every situation.

Genesis Croix De Fer 853 – Arne

For Arne we built this masterpiece : A beautiful Genesis Croix De Fer 853 (yes, with Reynolds 852 tubing) frameset was the basis for this versatile and fast gravel and long-touring bike. Wheels built with Chris King hub rear and SON dynamo front laced (with Sapim D-Light/Race mix) to rare and beautiful White Industries G25A rims (can we call them NOS already?). Chris King headset and Thomson stem / seatpost are a perfect match for a high end machine like this. An ergonomic Zipp SL-70 ERGO handelbar and Thomson bar tape finish up the cockpit nicely! Electronic SRAM AXS Rival / Eagle Mullet drivetrain keeps shifting smooth. SON Edelux headlamp and a well hidden B+M Mü taillight make sure you are visible in every condition.

Tumbleweed Prospector – Sascha

It was a pleasure to build Saschas Tumbleweed Prospector. The wheels were made with Rohloff hub and SON dynamo in front laced to Newmen EG.35 rims that withstand everything you throw at them. A Shimano XT crankset is turning in a Chris King bottom bracket and the headset is a Chris King too! Wonderful Paul Components Klamper brakes with matching levers do not only look awesome, but stop the bike in every situation safely. The Surly Moloko handlebar allows multiple hand positions and is a perfect fit!
