    MuruCycles Ti bike VS Salsa beargrease

    Fell in love with my moonlander!!..its a real basher...had my heart set on a beargrease for some lite trail work, but have just seen pics of the Muru Cycles - titanium fatbikes Ti frame...and some weight weenie builds using it...OH MAN!

    with XX1 and 4.7s its 11.5kg, as you see in the pic... and thats with the steel fork, I think you can get a Ti fork for it, and Ti bars...bang it up tubless...that has to be better than the beargrease!?!?! Sure it might cost a little more, but you might die tomorrow...whatever...K

    Some spideless middleburn fitting bling.

    what does it matter how much it weighs when it's missing a bunch of parts.

    Ah, thanks for that.

    Im feeling the butt hurt form HBC's demise. Paitently waiting for someone else to take up the slack and make spiderless chainrings for middleburns.

    Looks awesome ! Will be interested to hear how he goes without the XX1 ring on the front and no chainguide once he gets it out of the carpark and onto the trails. That could make for a good setup if he gets away with it, clean look !

    I cant believe I just fell in love with another frame! The Muru looks so good.
    Now to get the wife on board.

    The MURU is a sick bike and very well made by all accounts. I'm meeting a buddy out at the North American Hand built Bike Show next week who has ridden one. I will get the down low from him and report back. I for one would love a MURU to go with my fatback.

    I've just recently stumbled across the Muru brand and am already a huge fan of what they offer. It ticks all the boxes for me. Lightweight if I decide to do some racing on it, but sturdy Titanium tubing with rack mounts should I want to go touring in the Aussie outback. Win/win!
