Moonmen One - Dreaming Our Reality
There's an idea, then there's sketches and there's refinement and more drawings. Then a CAD, like the above, truly reflects the reality of how the bike will manifest. Head tube angles, seat and chain stay lengths, bottom bracket height, and on and on. It's all about the details. Everything down to the bar end plugs are considered. By complementing form with function (and visa versa) we wager your Moonmen will be an integral part of your stable for years to come. We aren't interested in building bicycles that are a flash in the pan but more so creating timeless machines that not only maintain their value but increase in value. Our choice material, titanium, speaks to this timelessness. The ride quality of titanium is absolutely unique. Though I'd like to speak to tensile strength and ductility of titanium I'll keep that conversation to myself. There's always the internet if you'd like to satiate the want for technical knowledge. I'd rather speak to the how a titanium frame wraps a switch back, bounds over a rocky fall line and climbs in the saddle. Titanium is an incredibly resilient material. Often I have the quick moment of panic when I'm flying in a jet, 30,000' above the ground, and I think WTF, how is this happening? A major part of what makes it possible is titanium. Lots of ti bits make up those air planes. In addition to the extra ordinary ride quality the durability is like no other. No rust...ever (well maybe it will rust under your great, great, great, great, great grand child). We encourage you to maximize the amount of titanium you have on your bike. A Moonmen rides best with a titanium seat post, handle bar and stem. The more ti the better.
As you can see, Moonmen One is very close. Stay tuned.
