Let's catch up a bit

 Here are some belated pictures of a touring mtb inspired/based on the blue 29er from the San Diego show last April. Built for the long haul with True Temper and aircraft grade 4130 tubes. Full attachment points for rack, fenders, etc. along with three water bottle mounts and internal routing for all cables allowing the use of full length cable housing. Look close and you can see how the rear derailleur cable goes in the left side of the top tube, out the right side, then into the top of the seatstay and out right above the dropout.
The rear wishbone crown matches the fork.

 Powdercoated a nice gloss black, totally decal free, the only Matthews logo a black stainless steel "M" on the headtube. The subtle look is terrible advertising for me...but  it's custom baby, and a custom bike should look just the way you want it to.

A fork for a classic mtb up next.
