[2015 NAHBS] Quiring Cycles 29+ Titanium Rigid Mountain Bike
I didn’t get to meet up with Scott Quiring of Quiring Cycles at the North American Handmade Bicycle Show this year but I was able to get some details after the show on one of his 29+ rides. The frame was designed around wider 29er plus tires for a “superior riding mountain bike” says Scott. Scott really likes the idea of 29+ and thinks that it rides much better than skinny 29er’s.
The frame of this bike is constructed out of 3/2.5 titanium tubing. The geometry on this bike is pretty custom for the client with a headangle around 69-72 degrees depending on the setup with 17.25″ chainstays.
Quiring likes to make his bikes easily adjustable to tailor the bike to the terrain you’re riding. This is easily done thanks to the Angleset headset and sliding rear dropouts. The particular bike features fixed dropouts and a standard Chris King headset to keep things simple. The finish on the bike is all in house beadblasting and paint by Scott himself. This particular bike weighs 22lbs.
