..... founder of Grove Innovations (more info: http://www.purplelizard.com/GIintro.htm) is almost finshed with the build of my Grove X-frame Titanium 29er with Rohloff and Gates Belt Drive.
You guys can't believe how privileged I feel to have (one of) the best builder(s) of his Era built this one-of for me .... and believe me, he hasn't lost his skills! Big thanks also to Rody (Groovy) for talking Bill into this project wich started almost 2 years ago. All tubes/drop-outs etc. are full custom ............can't wait to see it painted and hammer it down the trails :D


got the first pics last Tuesday.

Wow!

Are you going to pick it up in person? If so, let me know and I can take you on some of the local trails.

Roy, another very very nice build. Will keep an eye on this for this bike being finished and the paintjob.

Cheers,
Martin
