If you missed the first batch
of tasty morsels from the inaugural Made show, be sure to head over there to get the full picture. There's plenty more to see from the show, so let's get into it.
Part of the joy of Made for me was getting to see old friends from disparate corners of the industry in their happy place, in and around the world of bikes. It really feels like people pulled out all the stops to make an appearance at the first show, which made for an excellent array of builds and designs.
In addition to all the handmade goodness, there was some genuine innovation on display as well. The following bike is an interesting proof of concept of a novel manufacturing method that could very well find its way into the mountain bike world.
There was a rideable prototype floating around the Digit booth, and it looks to be a shorter-travel full-29" variant of the Datum. The official Sharpie graphics on the frame indicate that it's to be called the Ring, and it continues their use of the frame-integrated shock.
That's all for now folks, but there are a few more bike checks on the way, so stay tuned for those.
