I haven't been doing this a LONG time, like most in the industry. I got started late. Riding. Building...learning and taking things to the 'next level'. But I know what I'm doing. It comes naturally to me it seems. I have a knack for building a great bike, even though I'm not the best rider and can't FULLY enjoy ALL of that bike.
I'm like the 'Vince Lombardi' of bikes...never played in the NFL, but the greatest coach to ever run a team? I can build one mean bike, even though I'm not a world-class rider.
I have my own wheelsets: The Death Projects Custom premium carbon hoops. Wrapped around White, Onyx, or RideFast hubs, shod with various rubber depending on the circumstance. Bulletproof and light!
So the next natural progression? What the hell! Let's build a frame! I searched high and low and found someone to do just that. To my specs. For now. More boutique to come, but an inexpensive option to mess around with the idea.
I proudly bring you "The Death Projects" branded GHOST Hardcore hardtail frame! Long travel, low, slack as F*&%! Fast. Fluid. FUN! You'll see. And only the best of the best: Cane Creek, e*thirteen, TRP, branded wheels, etc...
This is a ONE-OFF prototype, for now. We'll see how it rides first before getting into production on these. But it's unique. A one-off frame, a very very rare Helm MkII fork (IPA, one of 30 ever made), that sexy Candy Ray bar, that Ring and pedals, and my one-off wheels...
**So a little update: Probably...maybe...THE best bike I've ridden! Taking this beast to Scotland in OCT to do some real biking!
Custom, my design. Yeah, I THINK I Know what I'm doing, we'll see...
A splurge. But hey, why not, it's MY Frame! My centerpiece! My baby! And only the best. And 25 grams lighter than the lightest carbon cranks out there!
First run with a MkII. This one is special. 1 of 30 made! Along with the BB and Headset! IPA series baby!
Another part of the IPA series of parts.
Great new product line!
Because it's AB and it's wicked looking!
Some of the best out there! And definitely the most expensive! LOL. Magnesium and light AF
I had a vision, so went after it. And here you go! v.1.
The best of the best! 9-50t, super light and super cool looking! Works fantastic with the TRP TR12!

New and improved and super sticky!! 29x2.4" of MOPO tire glue!
New stuff! Bronze to boot! Super cool!
Maybe not the most expensive, but the best I've used! And bulletproof!
My go to MTB saddle!! Super comfy and just really sweet looking!
