...or 'Schtickel, for short.

I sent Steve these rough sketches & let him work his magic...the results have been eye-popping!!! I highly recommend this guy as a builder. His has been (by FAR) the most seamless custom process I have EVER had the pleasure of working with.





I wanted a 29er version of my former bike (Evil Sovereign)...



How many custom builders can you throw a Hammerschmidt build at & get it totally nailed??!

Frame is currently at the powder coaters....build pics to follow.

Enjoy!!!



How do you like those mitres?







Nice Beads!





Taking shape!







More detail







Cable guide mock-up:















Stay tuned for build pics.....COMING SOON!

Dude...seriously, stop copying me :D
I can't help it. You're too cool. ;)

Seriously, that will be a very unique and cool rig. I am curious to see how it will all turn out. (None more than you, I am sure.)

Are you going to run the "Team Dicky Approved" I-9's?

Hehe...yes, I9's (ss/ bolt on rear/20mm TA front...gordos F&R)

This was designed around my local trails (east coast REPRESENT!) and riding style (ex-DH'er)...so, maybe not the fit for everyone...but I know what I like :)

I LOVE Steve's work. The little details are SO nice. I really like the brake brace. Sano.

Perhaps the most underrated custom builder...imho (GT...time for a feature steel fabricator article...;)). A true scientific artisan :thumbsup:

So you like shortish stays, highish BB's and slackish HTA's.

We can agree on the above for sure. It seems radically different from the Sultan, but I suppose variety is nice.

I'd ride that thing in a heart beat out WEST.

Enjoy.

Gonna run the Hammerschmidt with a low stand to climb trail gear and a high cruise to trail gear, or a low stand to climb gear and even lower seated to climb gear?

I never thought anyone would refer to a 120mm travel HT with a 12" bb as "highish" :confused:

Who is Steve?

I can't make out the logo on the 26er downtube. Guess I'm not one of the "in" guys that know this stuff already. :D

Looking forward to a report on the Hammerspitzel after you have a few hours riding time on it.
