    Did someone say Firefly in winter mode? This was just a mock up on the first day that I received the frame. The fork that I am using is actually a Ti Black Sheep unicrown, but for the 2.1" Nokians, I need to run a traditional New England segmented fork to get the clearance.

    I will shoot some photos soon of the complete build (Rohloff, I9, PFbb30 EBB, mountain drop bars, clearance for 2.25" 29er tires). Thanks, Jamie, Kevin, and Tyler.

    Wow, wicked! The more frames I see with the anodized logos, the more I wish I had that done. Always an option in the future I suppose. Loving the segmented fork but looking forward to seeing it with the Black Sheep titanium. Do I spy a Black Sheep seat post, too?

    Let me know when you want to ride. With the lack of snow, I may have to throw the slicks back on!

    The fork is 420mm AC; the bike was designed around a Black Sheep unicrown Ti fork - 410mm AC with 45mm rake. The Ti fork fits less knobby 29er, 2.1" tires. For the winter, it will be a traditional New England segmented fork. For the summer, I will drop a pound and switch to the BS.

    Great looking winter bike (xjahx's also). Makes me almost wish I lived someplace where I needed a bike like that!

    By the way, that fork is exactly the same fork that was a replacement fork on my 2010 Igleheart 953 650B (which originally came with a unicrown):

    There's something just very irresistible about their stuff.

    Swung by Firefly today to pick up a couple of items for my next project:





    They're also making a custom 1" titanium stem for me too. All these will look super sweet together!

    I know y'all are probably sick of my bike but I thought I'd give a shout out to the fine folks at ENVE. The rear rim was defective and was less than a year old so I called them and they were very accommodating. They replaced both rims, which was nice, and I got the fancier tubeless version (not that I'll go that route with this bike). They were also VERY fast in taking care of the warranty replacement. I also slapped on the Schwalbe Super Moto tires considering winter hasn't really arrived here (we did have some nice snow over this past weekend, though). The tires make the bike about 3 pounds lighter compared to the Maxxis Hookworms.

    Tyler, what are the guys at Firefly's thoughts on Traditional vs Compact for the road bikes you build? From your pic's on FNL, it looks like the majority of the builds are with a sloping tup tube.

    Usually it's an aesthetic decision, but not always. In order to fit some people to a certain geometry compact ends up looking better... Either works as long as the contact points are in the right place. What matters more than the top tube angle is that the bike fits properly.

    Just got back into town and had this lovely stem waiting for me. It's a custom 1" stem for my 1994 Rhygin Ra. It matches the aforementioned seat post and handlebars. As always, they did a fantastic job.
