Ray’s fat-tire road

Ray liked the pink bike that I showed at NAHBS this year, so asked for a version with custom geometry to match his fit requirements. He also liked the pink, but asked for some blue too, so the team at Colorworks and I came up with a split blue/pink paint scheme.

The frame has a custom butted and gently curved integrated seatmast, with a Thomson seatpost modified to have an internal wedge to provide saddle height adjustment. There are four bottle cage mounts for long adventures, and a carbon headtube insert.

SRAM eTap means no gear cables to accommodate, so there is just internal routing for the rear brake cable through the downtube, to control the TRP flatmount mechanical disc brakes.

The tires are 35mm wide, mounted on Enve M50 rims, which are built on Chris King hubs with 12mm thru-axles front and rear. Final total weight is 17.5lbs complete as shown.

  1. cool-beautiful bike! just like its sister, Pink Bike.

    i suppose same here too, right? “So to keep good weight distribution between the wheels I need to have short chainstays.”
    does this mean that if longer chainstays then too much weight at the front and too little at the rear?

    best regards,
    Mircea
