Hi again Jim,

This is an Agave, a cyclocross bike handmade from anodized Easton aluminum by my friends at the Bike & Bean Shoppe in Sedona, AZ. It comes with a pair of replaceable rear dropouts for that 5 minute single gear conversion. The seat tubes and chainstays are all perfect S-bends. I'm running a 38mm rear tire, but a 44 will fit. This bike climbs a bit better than my mountainbikes, perfect geometry and light weight being factors, along with tire physics explained here:╩http://www.cyclingnews.com/tech/?id=2005/features/conti_tech

Build: Crank Bros grips and pedals, Easton Monkey Lite bar, Thomson stem, King DreadSet and hubs, original Control Tech post, Flite saddle (orange and white leather under that QR cover), Salsa seatpost clamp and skewers, Avid Black Ops brakes, Race Face cranks and BB, Shimano XT integrated brake levers and shifters, R der, cogset, XTR F der, Mavic Open Pro rims, Conti tires, a snake bottle cage holding a burrito wrap from Rivendell, and Winwood carbon fork.╩

Enjoy, Cary Gossett
