    What year is that frame? I like the clear finish (or is it silver paint?)

    Nice KM, but is your seat in its usual position? With that stem/bar config, I'd expect another 8" of seatpost to be showing.

    Yup, the seat height is correct. I could probably remove a stem spacer or three, but I kind of like the relaxed feeling of it, and most of the rides on the Monkey are a bit more of a fun, leisurely spin through the woods. I think the camera angle makes it look a bit more upright than it actually is, too.

    Rides pretty well, though I've only got 2 outings thus far. Hopefully it'll dry out a bit soon and I can get back on it - more feedback then. Up to now it's pretty good, though I am still getting used to the slightly different geometry from previous bikes. <p>
    Titanium feels great, and a steel fork complements it well. And next to no maintenance is wonderful!!

    Q-ball 29er

    It's a Q-ball steel 29er with a Salsa fork. The wheels are XT hubs and the brakes are Avid BB7 mechanicals discs. Most of the parts were used, bought from MTBR members, and put together by Steve at Roubaix Bicycle Company in Greeley, CO. It's a bit of a work-in-progress as I need to get a better seatpost and figure out a better pedal situation. Nevertheless, it's been a greater winter commuter so far.

    And, yes, that's an old Steve Steadham sticker as the headtube.

    Just got it last week. It isn't fancy, but a very nice ride. I upgraded the brakes (Avid SD5) as well as the handlebar, stem, and saddle. Not shown in this pic is the new Cane Creek S3 headset.

    Nice work Jay - I wish you a ton of good luck with your framebuilding business. Sure looks like you are well on your way to building some kickass bike frames based on what I saw on your site.

    That Stoic has a huge amount of "rat rod" appeal to me. And I appreciate the effort that went into that fork a lot.

    LOVIN' that Stoic...

    bike!! Great combination of the old school feel of those sweet lugs coupled with the internal cable routing, not to mention the retro looking 20mm TA fork!! Absolutely phenomenal bike!! I would love to see some more detail on the crown of that fork.

    The crown is the new PCD Mtb. crown i will attach a few pics of the crowns, they are pretty nice, but blade selection is limited for a 29er (that fork is actually only 410mm ATC) but since the frame was designed around the fork all is well.

    Jay,
    I have a background in autobody/custom painting and repair and for the past several years I have been building gold/silver/porcelin crowns and bridges etc. in a Dental lab. I know something of craftsmanship and can relate to the amount of work that goes into those lugs etc.
    You, my friend, are a craftsman. I checked out your web site and saw some beautiful work. I only have one bit of advice for you in your new venture...never underestimate the value of your time/effort. You do great work and as long as you produce quality product you should do very well.

    I had a pretty bad crash and bent the top tube, the folks at Redline hooked me up with a new frame (crash replacement) and I decided to upgrade some components: below is the end result..what do you think?
