    The color-matched rims are a nice touch; not sure about the muscle car paint scheme though. I do like Sassy Grass Green...

    Sweet, sweet bike

    I got to see this bike unbuilt before Erik delivered this bike. It is super sweet. Erik has some cool ideas. I wish him well at the NAHMBS. He left today!

    Is the seat tube half missing? If so, was that to make short chainstays?

    Now THAT is a sweet bike. Especially nice are those color-matched rims! Love it.

    How long (or short I guess I should ask) are those chainstays??

    Very Nice! Love the Green.
    I saw Two Peacock Grooves at QBP last weekend and they definatly caught my eye.

    Matching rims makes it. Are those Salsa Rims??

    Can we see a close-up of the top tube's "hockey stripe"?

    Since it says R/T, I assume this is Sub Lime.

    Shortest CSs ever! Must be a manual machine!

    Assuming you meant centimeters that works out to only 16.5" chainstays? Pimp.

    Is the Peacock Groove guy formerly of Croll?

    Or am I just imagining that?
    Take the long cut, we'll get there eventually.

    Sweet bike! Can we get a pic of that seat tube from the back with the wheel removed?

    Is that an IRC Mythos rear tire? I wonder how much clearance that would have with a Rampage or a Nevegal mounted up.

    Time to pee in your corn flakes...

    Keep a close eye on that tube and keep us posted as time goes by. The sides of a seat tube are best able to deal with the stresses that come from pedaling, and this bike has the side portions almost completely removed. STs rarely crack along the front of back due to the relatively low stresses there. You see failures along the sides much more often. Most sectioned out STs (for aero) have a much smaller portion removed, keeping the sides intact.

    That said, I hope it lasts forever. It does look great.

    And to be even more positive, I highly recommend chainstays that short. My gearie has them set at 16 5/8 (422.275mm) and I wouldn't have them any other way. The bike is nimble, can wheelie and manual normally, and climb walls ( even on loose crap).

    I cant get any more pics for now because the bike should be in or near San Jose for the NAHBS.

    The tires are IRC mythos with plenty of room to go.

    This was taken into account and a couple other people have bikes with this same feature and are ridden like hell and have held up, doesnt mean it cant happen but if it does I know I'll get the frame replaced free of charge.

    I cant wait to bring this thing on the trails!

    Just an update on this bike now that its been ridden on the trails.

    Handles like no other bike Ive ever owned, the steel ride is second to none, short wheelbase makes it super easy to launch/wheelie, and Erik the owner of the company is just a great guy to work with, so if anyones in the maket for a custom build that not only looks pretty but rides even better, keep him in mind.This bike overexceeded my expectations!

    Hey, Sassy Grass Green was Plymouth's name for the color; I deserve 50% credit . That is a sweet looking ride, glad you're enjoying it.
