Ti Tuesday: Sixes Pit Colossus inspired Ti Honzo

Some of you may have seen this bike on VitalMTB.com a few weeks back, but if you haven’t you are in for a very pleasant surprise. Angel Rivera at Sixes Pit Bike Shop in Georgia has put this X-Men Colossus inspired Ti Honzo together and the thing just plain oozes radness. “We like to build custom superhero theme bikes from time to time. It is only under very special circumstances. We have a couple of rules before we build.

• The customer never picks superhero. Just colors
• We never reveal the identity of the customer
• We never tell the price of the build.

For this build we focused heavily on the color of the parts and the Ti of the frame. Colossus was born.

Colossus-X-Men-Marvel-Comics-metal-h01 X-Men character Colossus served as the inspiration for this amazing Ti Build.

Subtle touches like the orange Hope BB matched with the red Hope cranks show the attention to detail that Angel put into this build.
