I've always been enthralled with the idea of an all-in-one bike. The idea of a combination road/tri/trail bike is alluring in principle. Who wouldn't love having a single rig that represents the best of all worlds? Unfortunately, the reality is that any bike capable of multiple disciplines is never going to be optimized at any of them. It's always going to suffer some flaws at one or all of the intended riding paradigms. Nevertheless, I've always been interested in trying my hand at building such a bike, and at minimizing the potential flaws it would suffer. So that's what this bike is. I call it the Raptor. It's a predator, gobbling up all of the inferior competitors that dare call themselves multi-discipline bikes. It is chock full of TriRig parts to make it just like a falcon: beautiful, sleek, and undeniably fast. Check out the full article for all the ins and outs of this beast.
