The first Métier Vélo Mountain Bike is a collaboration with Poly-Shape, an additive manufacturing company based in Salon-de-Provence, France. As it happens, Salon-de-Provence is near the famous Roc d’Azur mountain bike festival—races, rides, and bikes—from 4-8 October 2017, and Poly-Shape will be there with the Métier Vélo MTB!
The striking Métier Vélo MTB highlights the magic of titanium 3D-printing in a modern mountain bike design. The frame is designed for 1x12 SRAM Eagle, with Boost spacing and room for either 27.5+ or 29” wheels. It features 6/4 titanium lugs printed and processed by Poly-Shape, custom filament-wound chainstays and seatstays from Tim Crossman Composites, and filament-wound main tubes from RockWest Composites. The lugs and tubes are bonded with super-tough West System G/Flex epoxy and jig-cured for perfect alignment. The asymmetric raised right chainstay leaves plenty of tire clearance, eliminates chain slap, and converts easily to a Gates Carbon Drive. Other notable features include:
