My new bike is a homemade 4130 steel front triangle on a Scott Gambler carbon rear end. My tig welding skills are lacking so 8 need to check on this one pretty often. I made a second one but it is winter here and I haven’t built it up yet.

I tried to make the second one a little nicer with rounded shock hardware.
The welds aren’t the best because I am just learning how to tig weld. Hopefully it will get better. The first frame looks much worse at the welds and it is holding together for now.

Finally got my Moots Routt RSL built and out for a ride...getting used to the AXS shifting, since all other bikes in my "stable" are running Shimano (except my Trek Superfly, that I'm selling since the feel and gearing are almost identical to my new Routt RSL). Nice feel on everything from smooth pavement to potholes to chip seals, and even a bit of gravel mixed with hardpack trail. Going be a great bike for all the surfaces I encounter in Tahoe.
