    Watchin' you. Writing it all down.
    Firstflight bikes, a local shops, have been reproducing bikes under the Mountain Goat (a way back cool brand) brand for awhile now. I believe that this is the first titanium 29er they've had made (guess who made it?)









    Some info

    http://www.firstflightbikes.com/Route29.htm

    and a steel one for the heck of it.



    The steel ones are made by the scyip brothers. The FKR is made by Retrotec. I always thought it was cool that they have been upfront with exactly who made the bikes. Anyhoo... I definitely like the panels.

    That ti bike is beautiful. the paint on the steel bike looks like the Roadmaster bikes I had to sell when I worked in a department store when I was 16.

    I like that panel look on the ti. I think Quiring was doing some of that now too. I may have to look into a similar treatment for my ti Racer X. I went ti to avoid paint or ano now to ditch the decals.

    I know they've been around, but lately they've been mighty visible on the forums with these Mountain Goat Ti frames and now the On One frames as well.

    Q has been doing the media blast in many different ways for at least 3 years now, and no upcharge for the service which he does himself, along with everything else. That is why his name is on the downtube.

    I'd seen a few that way but I thought the Bells Brewery guys were telling me he recently dialed in the process a bit when he moved to his new place. I could be off, too much info crammed into this tiny brain of mine. Regardless, I like the look.
