Welcome back to the ENVE Builder Round-Up. If you missed the builder video or VR tour, you can find that in the link below. Now, sit down, grab a drink, and dive into the coverage of the Builder Bikes, Part Two. Be sure to watch each video and hear from the builder as they walk you through each intricate detail of the build.
BOZEMAN, MONTANA USA
Drawing a line between venture and adventure, The LeadOut All Road is designed for some off-road fun, but not full blown gravel exploration. Made entirely in-house, the molded carbon frames can accommodate custom geometry.
NAPA, CALIFORNIA USA
The Funduro is a 29er singlespeed designed to accommodate a 120mm fork or the ENVE Mountain Fork. Completely versatile to deliver whatever riding experience one might want. In true Retrotec style, the twin top tubes feature the brand’s trademark arc.
STEAMBOAT, COLORADO USA
Since 1981 Moots has been creating some of the most enviable bikes on the market. The most recent update to the Routt 45 brings a longer front-center with slacker head tube, but the biggest news is the increased tire clearance…up to a 50c tire can now be used. Adventure ready.
BOULDER, COLORADO USA
Mosaic’s Aaron Barcheck’s long history working with titanium goes far back to his days with Dean Bicycles. His ability to tune the ride through tube selection is on display with the RT-1d, which is a true performance road bike that checks all the boxes. Aaron’s latest build features the Integrated Front-End with one-piece bar/stem.
ROCK LOBSTER CYCLES
SANTA CRUZ, CALIFORNIA USA
Just a handful of miles from Calfee, Rock Lobster has an equally impressive history in the sport with their TIG and fillet brazed steel bikes. The Team TIG SL is a classic, timeless design.
ASHLAND, OREGON USA
Mt. Ashland has some good skiing in the winter, but that doesn’t come close to what summer offers with the nearly endless miles of dirt roads on the mountain and the surrounding Siskiyou range. Those miles of gravel have shaped DeSalvo’s designs and inspiration around what makes a true gravel bike.
With clearance for a 45c tire, the Páramo is built around the unknown elements found in the Colombian countryside. Most notable is the paint, which is done in-house and guarantees no two bikes ever being the same.
LA SELVA BEACH, CALIFORNIA USA
The carbon frame pioneers, Craig Calfee’s history and experience goes deeper than just about any modern builder. Although bamboo is an alternative material found in the Calfee line, carbon has been their go-to material for decades. The trademark lugs allow full customization of the frame.
DENVER, COLORADO USA
The E-Ronin is not only the first e-bike from Alchemy, it’s the first US-made, e-gravel bike. Just like any of the other bikes in Alchemy’s line, the E-Ronin is available in custom geometry and numerous color options.The E-Ronin is not only the first e-bike from Alchemy, it’s the first US-made, e-gravel bike.

BEAVERTON, OREGON USA
At last year’s Builder Round-Up, Sage Titanium unveiled a prototype version of what would be the Storm King gravel bike. This time around, Sage’s David Rosen went with fatter tires and a flat bar on the Powerline hardtail mountain bike.
PORTLAND, OREGON USA
Speedvagen’s most adept adventuring rig gets an Adventure Fork for greater mounting options and a paint job that is uniquely Speedvagen. Like most other Speedvagens, the GTFO has numerous other add-ons depending on what someone’s intent might be.
PORTLAND, OREGON USA
The B-Road brings traditional steel frame styling and adds big clearance to allow up to a 50c tire in order to make it DK200 or Almanzo race-worthy, two events where the B-Road has shined. Custom options abound on the B-Road, from geometry to frame bags.
MITCHAM UNITED KINGDOM
A version of the All Season that is made for road performance, while still being able to accomodate high volume tires for a degree of off-road capability. There are so many intricate details on the ISEN, including 3D printed dropouts, a gorgeous pierced seat tube lug, and an asymmetric seat stay bridge. The finish is one of the most striking paint jobs of all the bikes in the Round-Up and is done in-house.
