e r t z u i ° film – Crema Cycles Static Rigid 29’r

Joe Wignall and Ken Bloomer, from Crema Cycles attended the Berliner Fahrrad Schau last week where they showed their new Static rigid 29’r shred sled in this limited edition configuration.

It features ENVE’s new MTB fork and a custom made carbon seat tube. The frame was built by Alchemy in Denver, especially for Crema Cycles and they will be offering 10 of these framesets (frame, fork, headset and seatpost). Each frame comes in a nice coat of custom paint and the Static is slated to be released later this summer.

Price is to be determined.

Props to the boys at e r t z u i ° film for the photos! See more in the Gallery!

    Q ring and SS with no tensioner? I’m sure the change in chain length is minimal, but it sounds like a recipe for stress to me.

    • Jack Luke

      (It’s super duper nice otherwise. That flattened top tube is delightful)

    • Noel

      I could be wrong (kind of hard to see) but it looks like it has the Paragon Machine Works adjustable dropouts.

      • Jack Luke

        Even still, that won’t take up slack in the chain as it goes through a revolution.

    • was just thinking that.. I rode some SS/fixed bikes with Qrings, but they always felt like a deathtrap to me. Every now and again the chain would fall off..

      Beautiful bike though!

      a Q ring on a single speed is bad mkay.

    • Jack Luke

      Well there you go, despite what I said, CXM just posted this article re q-rings and SS setup’s. Who knew!

      R: Every single one. The track bike had it for a while, but her track sponsorship changed. The chain-line growth is negligible on a Q-ring. On a 38-tooth ring, you’re looking at somewhere between 1/3 and 1/4 of a millimeter. So that’s less than the flex in the frame.

    Didn’t know Dugast made MTB tires, tubular?

    • Oh yes they do. Sew-ups, correct. WC racers love them some tubies.

  • Raving Elk

    Love it!
    Just one thing. What is that fender for in the front fork?

    • Mud. It’s built into the ENVE susp-corrected fork. Not sure how i feel about it yet…

      • Raving Elk

        Doesn’t appear to protect from any noticeable amount of mud.

        • I was joking (mostly).

          • Patrick Murphy

            It’s solely for keeping mud off of your Chris King headset.

  • btdubs

    It’s beautiful. Holy wow.

  • bob

    it’s a pity that the fork is so thin, otherwise it would be possible to install a light on the crown race

  • Clément ‘Karibou’ Malinski

    Those Dugast though !!!

    Sweet rig.

  • What happened to Columbus, Look and all the other carbon forks?
    Oh.. and why fit a carbon seat tube only on a steel frame? As much as it works it just sends the wrong vibe to me. A steel frame w/ a plastic insert?
