    Wife's bike. The exception that proves the rule that you don't find Baums on EBAY. Frame & Fork and SRAM RED levers, brakes and derailleurs in one job lot.

    Wound Up fork, so clearly it predated Instagram. Other than that, no idea. Rides beautifully apparently, so I don't really care if it's 6 or 16.

    Wheels from Tristan - haven't been touched in 5 years.

    In my view Baums are all a bit the same in their Instagram gorgeousness. I know they ride beautifully, but there is also a pretty solid focus on making them beautiful. I know they are all individual, but they are all a bit the same in that there are no ugly Baums. And then there is the price for a new one. As a Baum rider it appears you get instantly judged as someone with a fat wallet who rides occasionally. My wife is not into that judgement. When the frame gets a bit more beaten up, or the fork dies (if it dies. And if it dies it will be because of how close we are to the ocean, not because of a "Wound Up issue"), it will probably get a repaint that puts the focus more on the ride and less on the paint scheme and the branding. People who care can ask her who made the bike if they can't work it out from the tube shapes...

    I bet no one has put much thought into a paint job to replace an original Baum paint job. Took me a long time to finalise the paint scheme on my Enigma, and I changed my mind while the frame was being built! Can't imagine how long it would take to finalise an original Baum scheme....

    Hey Colin,

    Iím not sure if you saw, but earlier in the year Darren built a very similar bike for his partner, including a Wound Up. He still believes they are some of the nicer riding forks in the business.

    Baum Cycles on Instagram: “Classical in appearance yet there is no holding back the performance of this Cortardo. With geometry developed around the riders fit and…”

    Cheers,
    Todd

    That was a great read. Definitely a few nuggets of information I'll be thinking about when I start the process towards a new gravel bike. Unfortunately, I doubt it'll be a Baum. The Orbis + is dream bike status for sure.

    It was a great read. Bit old fashioned though.

    Apparently, the thing to do now is call your audience an idiot. Then ask a bunch of questions highlighting their stupidity and not provide any answers.

    By just telling us what he discovered Darren missed a few great opportunities to re-enforce my stupidity. There could have been a blog in it.

    I think I need this bike by virtue of us having the same first name. "The Darren' would be pretty cool to have written on my top tube.

    No cash available for such a costly bike though.

    I'm sorry but i dont follow you. I read the article and I can't see what you're getting at? I've never ridden a gravel bike and probably never will so it just seemed informative with regard to his development process.
