Billy’s Special

NAHBS Mosaic titanium custom bikes

In case you haven’t noticed from everyone’s NAHBS coverage, there was a lot of Mosaic at the show similar to the number of S-Works at your local crit.

Seriously, there was enough to do a whole NAHBS gallery on just the Mosaics. I almost did.

There was one that didn’t get much buzz though. Our friend Billy got engaged this past fall and he commissioned a custom Mosaic as an engagement gift for his partner in crime, Beth.

It’s a custom RT2 650B built around a SRAM Force 1×11 drivetrain plus a heavy dosage of parts from Paul Component and White Industries throughout. As a matter of fact, Paul handmade a pair of titanium rings for the couple. There are also three bottle mounts for those long trips in the woods and since it’s a Mosaic, it has sweet black paint with pink trim  and a dash of glitter.


An understated, yet extremely durable and U.S. made White Industries crankset

Paul Component Klamper mechanical disc brake for the braking moments


Don't mind the dust on the frame, but this RT2 utilizes a full-length housing for its rear disc brake

How about that for an engagement gift?
