While Salt Lake City hosts many cyclists and cycling brands - hand-crafters of cycling products are few. Together, Matt Nelson of Salt Air Cycles and Jonny Hintze of Snēk Cycling brought their finest work to a joint bike build that showcases each of their styles and careful attention to design details in this beautiful gravel/cyclocross bike.
"As I recall, I met Jonny in the days leading up to the 2017 North American Handmade Bicycle Show. The Show was being hosted in Salt Lake City, our home turf, and I had entered one of my customer's bikes in the ENVE 'Builder of the Year' contest. I told him a bit about the bike and left off that we should stay in touch.
Bi-laminated seat tube lug adds reinforcing to the seat tube junction and is hand carved and filed for that SNEK aesthetic
"I wanted a bike that I could race cross on but also had enough clearance for higher volume tires for longer gravel rides. After talking with Matt about the bike, I knew Salt Air cycles was the perfect fit. Not only was Matt local, making his products in the same town, but the first frames that he built were cross frames.
