About the Build

Here’s a special custom build that we did for a friend who chooses to explore the world by bicycle. They needed a bike that they could be easily boxed up and board a plane with the essentials for traveling. We picked a Titanium frame from the wizards at Dean Cycle Works. Ti… to keep things light and ensure this bike lasted till the end of time.
Designed for the discriminating road rider, the El Diente also offers the best value. Weighting is only 3.0- 3.5 lbs, (pending size) every frame is hand-crafted from the finest American made seamless 3/2.5 radial titanium that is cold-worked and stress-relieved for extra stiffness. The El Diente’s features include riders-specific proprietary custom-gauged tubing, a machine-butted 44mm straight taper headtube, weld-in H20 bosses, and extra stout, oversized, and ovalized chainstays. Dropout choices include 130 x 10mm standard or 142 x 12mm thru axle, caliper, or disc brake options.
A rear tubus rack provides the ability to carry random trinkets from the travels. Shimano Di2 allows for trouble free-smooth shifting and a large gear range for conquering the tallest mountains! Another feature perfectly tailored for this bike is the rodeo labs fork which allows the rider to carry even more gear if needed!
