just got the last piece of the puzzle installed recently. my top clamp is the final piece.


i designed this quite a long time ago, but now it's done. my machinist and i finalized the details and machined it last week. then hand finish, anodize, and now it's installed.


my top clamp is the last part of the bike to bring it to completion. the goal here was to keep it as clean as possible, no visible fasteners, no branding, no nothing. wretchedly excessive, but totally understated, like the bike it's sitting on. i couldn't have hoped for it to turn out better than it did.

the base shape works with my attack adjustable offset lower, so i can use attack inserts and change trail still with this clamp. the forks are captured with bronze collets, and the insert is captured with a bronze wedge. the top cap bolts on from below to hide it all and leave the nice clean look i was after.

super pleased.
