Lugged Mountain Bikes Coming Soon!

I‘ve always like the look of lugged road bikes and wished I could have a lugged mountain bike, too. Unfortunately it doesn’t really work as most lugs are made for road bike geometry. You just can’t buy lugs that will work with 100-120mm travel forks, or downwards sloping top tubes. So, I thought for a while about how it might be possible to create something of my own that would give me the look of a lugged bike, without actually using lugs. So here it is, just a practice piece so far, but it looks great, and I’m sure the first lugged MTB will look great!
