Rob’s Mountain Bike
Best Carbon Bike at NAHBS 2014
bike/ Mountain #2
finish/ Raw Carbon
Aussie Rob loved his Appleman Road and Appleman Mountain bikes so much he ordered a second mountain bike to allow for rigid and suspended front ends for 6, 12, and 24 hour racing.
Shown at NAHBS 2014, this bike features a PROTOTYPE Enve rigid mountain fork that has adjustable rake, integrated fender, and integrated brake hose guide. This mountain bike is identical in geometry to his first and features ultra thin titanium logos on the down tube, head tube badge, top tube, back of seat tube and AppleStem.
To fend off sharp quartz found in the old gold mining town Rob frequently rides in, ballistic kevlar was added for protection under the down tube as well as wrapped around both chain stays.
