I seem to be getting a lot of customers ordering frames that will do both, geared, single speed , and some even asking for the option to run a Rohloff system. The Paragon Sliders can make it happen and are a great choice to be able to do that . They are certainly beautifully machined components !
Just to make sure that my customers don't forget who's bike it is!!! During the final detail process , I polish the titanium tube and apply a computer generated stencil made out of a special material that holds up during the glass bead blasting process, and what is left is the persons name !
Just a shot of the alignment table measuring the head tube 12 " from the center of the head tube. This takes place top and bottom of the head tube. This is just one of many areas that is checked during the building process on every frame.
