Sasha from Australia’s Pony Bikes has reinterpreted this 29er frame by Kish Fabrication into a classy mountain goat. Built specifically for carving up local single trail around Woodend in the southern state of Victoria, it’s a refreshing departure from the fully suspended weight-weened mountain bikes usually found on one’s trails.

Jim Kish’s frames are individually detailed items already, and Sasha’s client has specified a fork by Massachusetts builder Christopher Igleheart. The brake cable guide on the leg is an Igleheart trademark. The rest of the spec sheet is top-of-the-line: XO brakes, Thomson post and stem, Easton bars, Cane Creek headset, White Industries drive train, Paul hubs laced to DT hoops and a Brooks saddle. Which isn’t, incidentally, Sasha’s preferred choice, but I think it hearkens back to an era of steel, rigid mountain bikes that I recall with fondness.

If you’re in Melbourne and require a custom build or special repair, contact Sasha through her blog.

    That seat is wrong in every way.

  • Agreed on the seat. But otherwise, it’s absolutely perfect. And I love those dropouts. And the cable routing. And the head badge.

    I do try and talk customers out of things I think will spoil the aesthetic, but at the end of the day I have to do what they want. If it were mine, It would be an entirely different saddle!

  • You simply should not put a Brooks saddle on a Thompson seat post.
    Even if you paid retail for the post and really wanted it to work. It won’t.

    why put disc brakes on a fixie?! and yeah… puke at the seat. beautiful workmanship whoever put the bike together though.
