Hi, Im Karl from Wachau, Austria.

To design and build bikes is for me as much important as riding!

This are my bikes:

BAUM cubano

Wow! Welcome to the forum.

I'd personally toss a black HS on the CX bike. The silver one is bulky looking. Also curious what it would look like with a carbon fork. Regardless, would love to get that bike dirty!

afer 2 years with my LOOK 586 I was searching for something unique and found BAUM. some emails later Jared and I had a very clear pic of how my frame would look like and I placed the order without being in the shop.

In autumn 2010 I crashed with my Kona Jake the Snake and broke my left collarbone – so the cross season ended before it really started.

During my recover I saw in a magazine a review about some cyclocross and big surprise the best one was the one from GEBLA – Georg Blaschke, an German framebuilder. http://www.gebla.de/indexD.html

As my JtS was anyway a bit too large for me and I was very happy with my cubano it decided to build up a disc crosser together with Georg – I also did not visit him in his shop for design, just emails and some phone calls. Meanwhile I met Georg twice and enjoyed it very much!

During the build of my frame Georg did a very detailed documentation of all working steps, more pics can be found here: http://fotos.rennrad-news.de/s/8226

As I own now a titanium from Australia and a steel from Europa I thought an aluminum bike from America would fit perfect into my collection. The question was just which type of?

Some research later I contacted Dave Tiemeyer to build a timetrail frame for me, again no visit in his shop, completely build on my spezification. http://www.tiemeyercycles.com/

Damn, you have some nice bikes! Personally I am not a big fan Baum, but the other two custom bikes are really sweet, especially the cx bike. All you need now is some more custom parts on the bikes :wink:

Love the bikes, especially the crossbike. But man, judging from the pictures, you've got a serious 'backyard' to play in...
