"Use the product" is one piece of advice I've gotten from a friend who makes high-end, custom guitars. So here it is: the Métier Vélo Classic Race, my personal ride. Fabricated with 6/4 3D printed titanium lugs and carbon tubes from Rockwest Composites here in Salt Lake City.

Bike details: The geometry is based on my 1992 Trek 2300 (73˚ headtube, 73˚ seat tube, 70mm BB drop) with modern updates, including a sloping top tube (8˚), longer chainstays (415mm), shorter and lower front end (501mm stack, 388mm reach). The 3D-printed custom rear dropouts are based around a replaceable hangar from Paragon Machine works.
Details: Chris King PF30BB and InSet2 headset, SRAM eTAP shifting, Red rim brakes, Quarq powermeter, Rolf Prima tubular wheels, 27mm Paris-Roubaix tires. Clearance for 33mm tire in back and 28mm up front. 15lbs ready-to-race with pedals, cages, number holder & powermeter. Exclusive Métier Vélo micro-adjusting saddle mount 3D printed in titanium.
