    Dig the Pig! Mud Pig that is. Looks super fantanstic.

    When I grow up, I want to work as a super domestique for Cinghiale Tours.

    Default The Mudpig

    I too love the MudPig. I have owned it for about two years now but the bike has only seen about 20 rides since it was my primary racing bike and I train on my B-bike.

    Lately I have put some fenders and some super fat tires and have been riding this all over the slushy suburbs of Boston.

    The white is almost like a Clearasil white. It is this beautiful pearlescent white, and the new Moderne decals are sooo nice!

    yash, welcome aboard - good to see you and your white bike. we're building a new Pig for a customer here in the shop, similar to yours but with curvy seat stays and a shaped top tube for easier carrying. probably shoot it for the website, gotta remember to ask the customer if we can paint his fork.

    what bars are on that bike?

    Are newest flavors of the venerable Mud Pig constructed in aluminum, CF, steel, or titanium...or does one choose the material?

    Default MudPig

    Hello everyone. Many familiar names here, I hope everyone is doing well. I just discovered this forum yesterday, and it has taken up all of my free time.

    The MudPig frameset is made from a very thin and light steel tubing. I actually am not sure which tubing set it is, but I believe it is Reynolds 853. Initially I was thinking of going Aluminum (or Alumni as some dude at the bike shop calls it) but after discussing my use of this machine with Steve, I decided to go with steel. I am very very happy with the way this frame came out. For once in my life, I wanted to get a race-only cross frame, so this frame has no rack mounts, nor bottle mounting holes. After a couple of years of racing this frame, I hope to send it back to have some bottle mounts drilled on it, and resprayed and make it into the ultimate Tournesol like bike.

    If I were more eloquent, I could better describe the floating sensation I feel when I race with tubular tires under the MudPig.

    we're starting to narrow the focus a little bit around here, mud pig is a good case in point: only offering steel or titanium; the steel frames we build in my shop here; the titanium comes from kent e. i want to be able to spec every tube used rather than piggy-backing on an existing builder's model. kent has extensive cross experience as does max/333fab, the guy doing my in-house welding.

    nothing against aluminum or carbon for 'cross, they just don't fit my plans for this year.

    Default NAHBS Hampsten

    There weren't very many bikes at the show this year that I would want to own, exactly as they were presented down to the last detail. This was one of them.

    If I was able to find room for it in my life right now I would simply take this picture to Steve and say, "This. Make me this."

    Correct. Send me a $100 bucks, and I'll give you the address where it can be found. Why wait to have a new one built? ;-)

    I heard that it went home with Steve. Anyway, I have this one, which is pretty similar... I was waiting to take better pics before posting them here.
