NAHBS 2011 – 29er Titanium Mountain Bikes from Quiring, Funk
Quiring Cycles and Funk Cycles both had their ideas of what a titanium mountain bike should be. Where Quiring’s went for a super lightweight 29er (above), Funk put together what they think is the smallest full suspension 29er ever. Check them all out after the break…
Quiring has a new Lefty headtube option, which is a sure way to drop some weight. This bike comes in at a claimed 20lbs with a 3/2.5 ti frame with 6/4 dropouts and bits.
Frame is $2,700, and complete bikes are also offered. This one would be about $8,000.
Full suspension and custom paint are also on tap.
Funk Cycles’ La Rita is a super small 29er full suspension bike for very short riders.
It uses a pivotless frame design, letting the chainstays bend to provide rear wheel movement.
La Rutabaga (bottom) is their regular 29er design, and it’s also available in a Ti Carbon with a carbon fiber front triangle that’s brand new. All made in Colorado. $3,495 for frame on both.
The new hardtail 29er (top) Veloce is $2,995. They have stock standard sizing on all models, custom sizing (within reason) is offered at no upcharge.
