Matt at STOUT Bikes has been producing great custom frames (as well as forks and handlebars) out of his Texas shop for some time now.
In both cases I was blown away by the build quality and attention to detail. Both owners were both pretty stoked on their respective bikes too.
And who could blame them? They’re both great bikes (I’ve ridden both.)
So the other day, I was surfing the net — flitting between bike sites — as I’m wont to do.
And I found myself over at the STOUT Bikes website.
After spending way too much time checking out all the custom frames, forks and bars, I caught myself checking out a build simply called “Ron’s 24”.
The bike looked huge!
I don’t know the specs but that front end appears plenty roomy.
The back end looks tight though…so it definitely looks like it would be great to shred on.
Ron is like eight feet tall. He is one of the guys I met in Oregon that helps build a kickass local dirt park. I hope he’s liking this thing better than that tiny P24 that he broke.
I’m super curious about the specs/geo now! If the other STOUT Bikes I’ve ridden are anything to go on (and I think they are) this is probably a rad bike to ride.
I hope I have a chance to test ride this bike some day.
Here’s a pic of the fork and bars.
If these pictures have whet your appetite for some more custom bike porn…mosey on over to the STOUT bikes website, I know you won’t be disappointed.
