This will be a hot bike.
Katie in Tucson had been thinking about this bike for a while- when she pulled the trigger she decided to go all the way with it. She wanted something light, fast, and pink. After some discussion she settled on a silver frame with a full compliment of pink components. A subtle metalic silver powdercoat, finished with a pearl top coat and pink decals adorn the Easton Ultralite frame. Features include a custom-turned hourglass head tube, (shorter to keep her bars low) and a relieved bottom bracket shell. The bent top tube affords ample standover clearance while providing just enough room for two full-sized water bottles within the main triangle. Ahrens sliding dropouts and plumbing for gears finish the frame off.
Yes, that’s a tank.
Her Trauco singlespeed features geometry on the neutral side of forgiving; quick enough to carve in and out of cactus-lined singletrack but stable enough to rough descents with speed.
The numbers: ETT 22.75″, SA 73.5, HA 71, CSL 17.2″, BBH 12.5″ (designed around a Fox F29 80mm fork)

More to come soon- there’s lots of shiny pink stuff on the way!
