The color is actually a deep purple. Spectrum matched a sample of nail polish the mechanic provided. We specialize in titanium, but we can be convinced to do steel also. Currently in the works is a newsboy-style 29er singlespeed with EBB.
Here's a pic on his roof rack:
HighGuy said:Here's a pic of what the bike should look like. I hope to have this rolling shortly, and am planning a 26er version also. The prototype will have cable guides and a hanger so it can be set up geared, but every other one we make will be to the customer's spec. Hopefully this bike will debut at the Fruita Fat Tire fest.
The build list for the Mowee Wowee is:

Thanks for the feedback on the Panama Red. I ride that on the Snowmass NORBA course about once a week. There is a small group of 'crossers I ride with, and we think the Cross Mountain trail should be renamed the Cyclocross Mountain Trail. Even with discs, it comes in at 19.8lbs with road tires. It's sweet on pavement, too: I've had it up to 53mph coming off Loveland Pass, and it's very stable.
