    We are a registered company now and we've sold about 20 frames in total. No plans of growing lots though - it's a side project we do for fun.

    That beetle does low 12s on the strip :)

    I don't have a paint booth or anything (the blue one was painted outside during summer). For this one I found a warm room next to the garage space we're renting. Not very clean and the ventilation is less that optimal, but with a mask and only a couple of minutes inside per coat it's safe. The nice thing is that the room holds 30 degrees plus, so laying on the clear in thick glossy coats without runs was a breeze.

    Primer - "free" (U-pol etch primer from the shelf)
    Logo - £6 (1k Montana - skimped on this, but way too much orange peel, had to sand it down)
    Base - £27 (1k Spraymax - mixed to desired colour code from paint shop)
    Clear - £20 (2k Spraymax)

    Going for a 29" setup this time. The new SID in 120 with 35mm stanchions seems just right for my type of riding. Second hand X1/XX1 group, new XT/XTR brakes, 180mm OneUp dropper, Procraft carbon bars and alu stem. Have yet to build the wheels which will be the new DT240 with some 30mm wide carbon hoops. Will end up at 11 kg.

    The bike sadly never showed up, so I'm ordering another one. This time we're also opening for friends to join the pre-order. Both this and the gravel frame. Msg me here or shoot a mail at thomas@stribecycles.com if interested. Deadline to join the order is Sunday 12th.

    STOLEN. Please keep your eyes open. Only six of these are made and this is the only blue one.

    It was resting on display at The Service Course Oslo when they had a break in last night. To other bikes was takes as well.
