This bike ended up being a really awesome build, and a very unique bike that I’m so glad to have had the opportunity to work on.
When Larry contacted me about a bike, he had a great vision for it, and we really just followed his lead. While I took care of the geometry and fit, he knew what he wanted in the custom powder coat, component selection, and most of all, the Black Sheep parts.
Larry’s bike has a Black Sheep Deathsplosion fork, which is a vibration dampening titanium fork with flex plates that soak up vibration while keeping everything in control. James builds these forks in his shop in Fort Collins, CO and now’s a great time to admit I’ve admired his work for many years. So when Larry mentioned putting a Deathsplosion fork on his new Myth, I was thrilled, and so excited for the result. We also put a Black Sheep titanium seatpost on this bike, which was a beautiful addition.
Larry also went with a Myth ti stem and our LoMoTo handlebar in ti, a match made in heaven for levering on the singlespeed drivetrain. The eeWings cranks from Cane Creek finish out the ti parts, and were a perfect compliment to the rest of the builtd.
Whiskey rims and Onyx singlespeed-specific hubs made for an instant-engaging, silent wheelset that also was not heavy in any way.
A beautiful blend of steel for the frame, and titanium parts made for a wicked light bike. I actually forgot to weigh it, but it was extremely light.
The whole thing was a really fun project, and one of the coolest bikes we’ve built to date. It was such a pleasure getting to put James’ work on one of my bikes, and to be able to accomplish Larry’s vision for his singlespeed shredder..
Black Sheep forks and other components are available to be specced on Myth frames: Made in ColoRADo.
