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.

:censor:That is Awesome😍😍
I have lusted for a Turner Czar for many a year. But it could never came to be.
Do Turner even still make frames? Are they still in business?

They only make titanium hardtails now. I'd love to pick up one of those or a Thomson for a gravel ride.
Take a look at Moots or Lynskey for Ti...personally love my Moots bikes for ride quality, and can't beat the peace of mind in durability. My Vamoots RSL took a high speed crash (Garmin says I was doing 45mph) in 2013 and frame was fine - even had welds x-rayed by a doctor friend that owns a 24hr clinic. Also love riding gravel/single track/debris covered shoulder and not worrying about junk getting thrown at my BB or downtube...not so much with my high end carbon stuff from TREK.

I'm kind of a small-builder kind of guy, even though those aren't exactly high-volume. I've always got my eye open for good deals on frames though (I'm a cheap SOB too).

I have an older Litespeed Tuscany that I love also. Need to get that one out on the roads more this year.
