Kris of 44 Bikes recently updated his blog about his personal bike for 2013. Kris rides a 29″ hardtail he designed for himself with an interesting part spec. Kris actually runs two different Stan’s rims with a wider Flow rim in front and Arch in the rear. You’ll have to read about his thoughts on this setup and more specs on his bike at his blog.
44 Bikes has also been featured in a Builder Spotlight on The Paceline Forum. In the thread Kris answers a lot of questions about his background and influences and shows off many of his creations.
