Joe’s Mango Machine

Built up with Chris King, NoTubes, and Syntace goodies.

We built up Joe’s Scandium singlespeed, just short of his Brooks saddle and a nice pair of mango anodized pedals.


His build kit is highlighted by smart, durable components with an eye toward light weight & easy maintenance. The Chris King hubs are laced to NoTubes Arch 29 rims (with mango nipples) and mated to a Fox F29 RLC fork. The cockpit (not pictured) is a German made Syntace P6 carbon post and a F129 stem mated to a Titec Jones bar. Stoppers are the much loved Avid BB7 calipers, controlled with Speed Dial SL levers. The drivetrain turns on a Truvativ Stylo OCT crank and an Endless Bike Company Kick Ass Cog.


Joe’s Trauco features a swanky metallic tangelo powdercoat, with a subtle gold sparkle the shows itself in full sun. The tubeset consists of Easton Scandium main tubes mated to Easton Ultralite stays, the CNC yoke for great mud clearance (good for the bike’s North Carolina home), and Ahrens sliding dropouts.
