BBQ Sauce 2.0 :: Stainless Steel Gravel Royale

Order up! A second helping of Barbecue Sauce (Sun Kissed Orange Crystallance), paired with Gloss black on brushed Columbus XCR tubing.

Paragon's disc rocker dropouts allow for proper tension with a Gates Carbon Drive, which will be used with Shimano's Alfine Di2 electronic shifting system. A split in the seatstay provides easy access to the belt, while a dimpled chainstay lets the crank spin freely.


Lastly, a 44mm head tube will accommodate ENVE's Road Disc fork.

IndyFab + Paragon :: Steel Planet X

Fresh out of the paint booth, a hot new steel Planet X for Rebecca at Paragon Machine Works! This frame was built to tackle it all, from road to gravel and everything in between.

We love her color choices – Barracuda Purple with Hot Pink, White, and just a splash of Nogaro Blue on the seat tube to pull in a Navy Chris King component package.

An IndyFab/Paragon logo mashup is visible from the rear, "so they can see it as I pass them".

Lastly, Rebecca's frame was built with a 44mm head tube to be paired up with ENVE's CX disc fork (not pictured, but it was awesomely purple too).

Whole Lotta Rosie

The best part of working at Indy Fab is being afforded the opportunity to design, build and ride your own bicycle. Living the dream!

The steel Deluxe 29er plus is built around the Paragon Machine Works chainstay yoke, which allows a builder enough clearance for 3 inch tires and the chain ring, while still using a standard 68mm width bottom bracket.

Rounding out the build is a Sram X01 11 speed group and hand built wheels featuring I9 hubs laced to Stans Hugo rims with Bontrager Chucacabra 3 inch tires. A huge shout out to Jimbo at Stans for the rims, and Blake at Bontrager for the fork, stem, bars, seatpost, saddle and tires.


Drenched in PPG's Liquid Crystal Candy Apple Red , because everyone knows that red bikes ride fastest! 

"Rosie" in her natural environment, riding and handling just as good as she looks! Click HERE for more pictures of the fabrication process and final build.
