New bikes in 2015

2015 was a big year for Burnside Forge.  It’s been a while, so I’ll show you the bikes and follow up with another post highlighting our racing.

Wayne and his lovely wife Kim beside his new frame .010. Singlespeed and dedicated rigid with steep geometry deigned for one purpose.  Wicked and sharp, this XC race slayer weighs in at just over 21lbs as pictured.

Chris’ trick fatty #.011.  Built for 4″ tires and nimble XC prowess, this frame has a 44mm head tube, rocker dropous, and a seat tube for a 31.6 dropper.  Color matched to blend in next to his monster Jeep Wrangler.

Wayne came back for a sweet cross bike, #0.13.  Gotta love the simplicity of a rigid Singlespeed. Build from Columbus Life tubing around a carbon TRP fork, nothing between you and the ground here but silent, subtle compliance.

Rounding out the year of fabrication, here is my own personal cross bike, frame .012.  Almost identical to Wayne’s, the only difference being that I painted my TRP fork (that holds a 15mm thru axle for mtb hubs) and I included braze ons to be able to run gears in a 1x setup.  I fell in love on my first ride…which just happened to be a crisp Saturday morning at GP Gloucester.
