Stopped by PG on Saturday to get a sneak peak of some of his NAHBBS bikes. Most were already off at paint, but he did have this nice 29'er in the stand.
The killer detail here is the twin internal cable routing. One for a hydro line and one for the rear derailleur cable and housing.
Exit of hydro hose on the TT and re-entry on the seatstay
Exit of rear der housing
Which just like the other side continues down the chainstay
Another nice detail, the stainless cutout of the seattube to allow for a tighter wheelbase.
This was another project that he was working on, the first Peacock Groove to have a carbon rear end.
After checking my photos, I realized it looks like this bike will have an internal headset as well, but he didn't mention it while showing me the frame.

The Nuge, RIP
Also of note was the fact that Appleman cycles has moved into the space since I was last there
hopefully I'll get a chance to shoot some of his bikes and get the lowdown on who I imagine to be the only custom carbon fibre builder in the Twin Cities
