The client is a strong single-speed aficionado,and this would be his first road bike. Presented with several frame options that accommodated his fit requirements, he selected this Foundry Auger full carbon with Whiskey carbon fork. The key factors with this build are the bullhorn handlebar, 1x11 speed Ultegra drivetrain, Hayes mechanical disc brakes and 35c tires. Both the frameset and the handlebar exactly duplicated the client's single speed bike. These elements were paired with a Sram Force carbon crankset configured for a single speed narrow-wide Race Face chainring. We experiented with the Ultegra 11 shifters positioned at the ends of the bullhorn bar until finding a comfortable fit.
