2018 NAHBS: Mosaic Cycles OD GT-2 with JPaks Bags

A few weeks back, around the time of the Giro x Radavist collection drop, Mosaic reached out, saying they had the perfect bike to display the goods with at NAHBS. I was into it, Giro was into it and I think you’ll be into it. This GT-2 build by the Colorado-based builder features a geometry more tuned for long day dirt rides and lightweight bikepacking, custom Spectrum-powdercoated decals with matching OD green King Kages, and a set of custom bikepacking bags from Colorado’s JPaks Bags. The beauty of the JPacks frame bag system is the nesting frame bag that fits under this partial frame bag, allowing you to either run bottle cages, or an additional bag for storage. You can see this bike for yourself at Houston’s Bicycle Speed Shop.

    Rad bike! Not sure why most builders neglect to lower bottle cages on their adventure builds with framebags tho. Have a good NAHBS Prolly!

    The 1x setup really highlights the White Industries crankset in a beautiful way. Super classy set up here. Also, never heard of the Jpak company before, just checkout out the site and really dig what they’re doin.
