The most important thing in building a bike is to be able to communicate its potential. You’re going to have amazing times when you ride this bike and that’s the main underlying reason I do what I do.

I could have just designed some bikes, had them made in Taiwan and then shipped over. But I wanted to know where everything was coming from, I wanted to get back to a cottage industry kind of set-up.

The bike

One of the main things about this bike is that it has disc brakes. The nature of the Continental rides is that they will be going up some pretty ratty roads and riding in some pretty harsh environments. So it needs to be an all-weather bike.

And it’s going to get a Wound Up fork. The way the fork is constructed means it’s a little bit of a nod to mountain biking.
