Hot rods are steel, Rody is busy prototyping Ti ones though :wink:


And yep, it was worth the wait in every way. It has both the Grove innovations and the Groovy cycleworks logo on it showing it was a mutual effort of both Rody and Bill. Makes it so unique to have those two great man working on it.....and even better to hit the trails in CO and Utah together with Rody now. He's become a good friend and I can't imagine a more fun guy to travel and ride with. We're off to Moab today :D

Congratulations! That's a great looking bike with a great story. I'd love to hear more details about the ride characteristics whenever you've had time to fully digest the differences between the Groovy-Grove and whatever other bikes you ride on a regular basis.

Yep, barstem is Ti

Have been using the Rohloff for over 5 years now and I'll never go back to external shifting. Just fit and forget ..... and they'll last and last

She is a beauty!

Enjoy the riding and look forward to more details on the bike.

But tell Rody to hurry up down "the list" :)

I, for one, would love to hear how you get on with the belt drive in the mud
