Super Custom Litespeed T2 Disc Twin Builds

We had fun building these! (see pic gallery below)

You know you have a unique relationship with your clients when you get to build a second pair of dream bikes for them. Clients Kevin and Marty have been friends of the shop since before there was a shop! Since 2007 if I am not mistaken. After too many miles to count, and too many worn out drive trains to remember it was finally time to replace the Trek Madones I built for them more than 12 years ago through Trek’s Project 1 Program. As good as Carbon is, it just doesn’t last forever and it was time to build something that would. When you want the ultimate ride, American made quality, and a truly enduring material you need not look any further than Litespeed.

Go with a 1X System and Ditch Your Front Derailleur

If you have been in the shop lately and happened to hear or been a part of a discussion with me on SRAM’s revolutionary idea of a single chain ring drive train, you likely got more than an earful.  It’s exciting, simple, and very cost effective and I tend to get really worked up about the benefits and features that a lack of front derailleur has.  I am admittedly a SRAM guy, and preface my passionate discussion of all things SRAM by making that clear before going off the rails about how much I love the 1X (pronounced “One-By”) system.  That being said, the idea of ditching your front derailleur is brilliant for just about everyone.  No really, unless you’re a hardcore bike racer, it’s a darn near perfect system and it has an amazing amount of upside to it.  The 1X arrangement has been a mainstay in the mountain bike world for several years now and has revolutionized mountain bike drive systems.  It’s a very hot topic right now in the cycling world, and more cyclists, triathletes, and occasional riders are making the switch.  Should you make the switch?  Read on and lets discuss the idea from a practical, mathematical, and cost standpoint.
