Dylan was a great guy to work with. He was able to clearly communicate what he wanted and the design elements he liked. At the same time he gave me the freedom to make the bike that I knew would best serve him. His 29er is a representation of what I envision for the Mono-Graham. It has a simple aesthetic that can only be achieved on a SS bike.
Some highlights in the build are the new Stan’s SS Hub laced to Arch rims. Stan’s continues to provide top-level performance at a great price. The black Brooks Cambium C17 Saddle really matches the overall style of the bike. Thomson seatpost, bars, and stem will provide a beautiful, American-made, cockpit that will last a lifetime.
The Enve MTN Fork is possibly the best rigid carbon fork on the market. In addition to lightweight and stiffness, it has a couple of really cool features that set it apart. The dropouts of the fork are chips that can be flipped to change the rake of the fork. It also has a removable fender that is designed to block mud from flying up into the riders face. Throw in 3″ tire clearance and it’s a great candidate for a 29+. Did I mention it’s light?
In the future, Dylan could do a variety of other things to adapt this bike to his changing needs. He has the option to add a suspension fork for tackling more aggressive trails. A 1×10/11 drivetrain could be installed if dictated by terrain or racing style. The dropouts are replaceable to accommodate new hub standards. This bike will serve him well for many years.
