Hey Guys,
Been a while! Weightweenies was a big inspiration for me in my earlier years.
So, I'm going to start a new thread, Berk-style, to show off all of our work in one place.
Hope that makes sense and that y'all enjoy what we do.
First up...

Bastion's first ever Single Speed :)
This is for an awesome young man named Warrence.
Warrence is deaf, and plans on riding this bike across Canada to raise mioney and awareness for hearing-impaired causes.
Here's a complete bike shot with some detailed photos below.

The build kit is mostly what the customer had on his old Bianchi Super Pista.
[And yes, we know the Dura Ace front brake is a bit sacreligious with the Campy disc wheel, but function came first]
Bastion had to design the track dropouts from scratch, so kudos to them on this awesome project!

Ive found it curious why after all the PR of Bastions launch there doesnt seem to be a single review out there? Love the bike, love the tech. Good luck with the ride.

I'd say the quality of ride, engineering and finishing is definitely top-notch.
Happy to answer any questions you may have.
