[2015 NAHBS] Moonmen Steel 29+ Rigid Mountain Bike

I spoke with Moonmen at the North American Handmade Bicycle Show this year and got to learn about their first steel bike project. Moonmen is mostly known for making titanium frames and parts. Recently they have partnered with a component maker in Ft. Collins called Idyllic Cycleworks. They make both steel and titanium components for frame builders. Idyllic makes an array of components including headtubes, BB shells, dropouts and much more. Moonmen is partnering with them in the steel arena to show off their capabilities. This bike is owned by one of the guys at Idyllic with custom geo for the trails he rides.
