Many are the days that have passed since I posted a few pics of the Guru Praemio titanium frame we received. Since then we’ve built the bike with a SRAM Red drivetrain, HED Ardennes SL wheels, a Ritchey cockpit and a Thomson seatpost. It’s a very understated, very cool bicycle that weighs just over 16 lbs.

And there it is. If you’re thinking about a custom bike or a titanium bike or especially a custom titanium bike, this is worth a look. Keep in mind that Guru does is for you. You want a bike stiffer than this? Done. You want a bike like this but for loaded touring? Done. You want a different finish? Done. All of those options and many more are part of making your Guru yours.

Monkeys on Typewriters

Each month we go to the zoo and hand out typewriters to monkeys. After a few days, we collect their thoughts and format them into an email newsletter suitable for framing or birdcage lining. Sound good? Enter your email below and check it out.

Note: we will never ever ever ever share your email. Ever. No monkey will contact you directly.
