Sunday 22nd Aug
I have way too many bikes, it’s true. But after my treasured Trek Domaine was stolen, there was a hole in my life. That bike carried me through La Marmotte in France, the Maratona in the Dolomites, the Haute Route in Colorado and five of six Growling Beavers. I’m honestly sad writing about it.

This new beauty cheered me up though. Michael and Dede Barry designed her as an adventure bike (specs follow). Those cushy tires and splayed bars will be perfect for the Growling Beaver!

Evan’s 2021 Mariposa Adventure Bike

This one-of-a-kind frame was fillet brazed with with a mixture of Columbus road and mountain bike tubing, a Columbus tapered head tube, and Paragon dropouts. It was designed to accommodate a 1x Shimano GRX Di2 groupset, a dynamo lighting system with internal light wiring, three bottle cages (two on the down tube and one on the seat tube).  An ENVE Adventure Fork is featured with bosses for a light, other mounted accessories, or a front carrier. 

The bike has a Shimano GRX Di2 1 x 12 groupset (42T chainring, 11-42 cassette).  The wheels were built up with ENVE AG25 Foundation rims, a SON Dynamo front hub, ENVE alloy rear hub and beefy/cushy Rene Herse Fleecer Pass 29” x 2.2” Endurance Tires.  The SON Edulux front light is mounted on the front fork and the Rene Herse Rear light is mounted on the left rear stay to a braze-on.  The wide tires, combined with the ENVE flared drop gravel bars provide great stability on the roughest terrain. This bike can be ridden comfortably day or night on single track, gravel, or on tarmac with swapped tires
