It's been a few months since I embarked on commissioning Kris Henry to build my dream bike: a 29+ that I dubbed the project 44 'Magnum'. All steel, a bullet proof Rolhloff/Dually drive train, so it might be slow off the draw, but it'll blow your head clean off! Kris was excellent to deal with and we ended up curating components and finishes from some of the best: Wheels were done by Mike @ lacemine29 and the fork is actually done by Drew @ Engin. Paint by Jay & Circle A. Paint design by Kris (with input from yours truly)

I haven't got to ride it yet as it is still at his shop, but hoping I'll have it'll n the next couple of weeks, but the tube selection and knard should give a smooth ride.

Been admiring 44 bikes for a few years now. The lines on those frames are down right sexy. 16.5" CS's with such a big tire is some rather impressive engineering. Enjoy the ride. She's stunning!
