Tracklocross is coming

My son had wanted a tracklocross bike for a while so we designed one with a few specific requirements that could also double as a geared tourer if needed. We had hoped to go to the Tracklocross champs in Sacramento but for obvious reasons that looks unlikely now. He wanted to avoid any toe overlap when using larger (42c) tyres, wanted the ability to run gears so needed 135mm axle, removable cable guides and we ended up getting hold of some Squid Bikes So-ez forks. He then chose a selection of components from Hope, Nukeproof, Gusset, Onza, DT Swiss, SRAM, BLB and WTB to try out going tubeless. The geometry was aimed at being fairly stable for surefooted Tracklocross offroad and possible touring action. He spent some timing sorting out the Spray.Bike paint as a homage to Ken Block’s Cossie v2 and the Hoonitruck. From the first tests, he’s pretty happy with how it rides.
