    Hey Nick! It's Gregg from Mendocino.

    Nice effort on that monster. You really paid attention to details. I imagine that thing is a bit sketchy on a trailer.

    See you on the trails.

    Thanks Jlian, glad you like the bike and the website. Ibis folks did a great job building the site. As a matter of fact, they've been great with everything. Can't say enough good things about them.

    Hey Greg,
    Long time, no see. Hope all is well.
    No biggie on the trailer. It has a stand that bolts to the trailer and then to the bottom bracket. That, and four ratchet straps and she's set to go. No problem getting down to Sea Otter and back

    How do you like it singlespeed? is that an internally geared hub or belt drive?

    Have you considered a dropper post?

    Ugh, are you still on a fox rear shock? Is it push tuned?

    Are those esi grips?

    I bet you could drop some weight with a tire change!

    What fork are you running?

    It doesn't look flexy.





    Cheers man, amazing work! It was the highlight of the show, as everyone seemed to be talking about!

    Total fixie, no gears or brakes needed
    Dropper post, I'd love one, but it's special order from John Deere
    Ohh, that shock is definitely Pushed
    Napa Auto grips
    Kenda is considering manufacturing some Small Block Eights for it.
    Dare I say a Manitou
    And your right, It's not too flexy

    Glad you liked it. If your ever in the neighborhood up here in Ft. Bragg/ Mendocino and want some great riding give a shout. Open invitation

    Yeah, when are you going to move it out of the driveway?

    Well, I just got back from going to Sea Otter with it. Might sit here until Burning Man.

    The HOA in my neighborhood would have a fit if I had something like that in my drive way. I would love it!

    Can the wheels and crank actually turn and rotate, and is there anyone tall enough to ride the bike?

    Maximus is a functional bike. Bearings in the headset, and hubs. Ran out of time, so I didn't have the chance to put bearings in the bottom bracket. It's just a capped tube that the axle passes threw. But it is functional. Suspension is just for looks, though it might be fun to put some hydraulics to it.

    Thanks for the compliments. Glad you all like Maximus. I haven't found anyone big enough to handle the bike yet.
    Yeah! The axe thing, it's one of my favorite carving tools.
