12 Days of Breathtaking Builds 2021: Day 7 - Chris King Open House Baum Orbis

Derek Yarra |

On the seventh day of our beautiful build countdown, Phillip chose to shine a light on a pearly white Baum all-road bike. We built this in collaboration with Baum for the Chris King Open House event, and this Dura-Ace and Enve-clad Orbis+ left us all wishing for one of our own.

12 days day 7 baum orbis plus

"This Baum has me flummoxed. It is quite simply a clashing of worlds. Simple, modern, and clean white pearl paint, yet futuristic with almost holographic blue lettering. A deceptively innocent- looking frame with titanium bones that are ready to take it into overtime and give you 110%. I want to equally ride it to hell and back, and hang it above my tv and never let a piece of dirt ever touch it. There are brands in the bike world, then there are icons. This bike has 4 Icons checking all the boxes. Baum: Frame builder extraordinaire and regarded as one of the best Titanium builders / painters in the world, check. Chris King: The absolute pinnicle in precision and beauty in the Hub, Headset, and BB game, check. Shimano: Quite simply the industry standard and to which all others are compared, check. Enve: Simply Carbon wizards, check. And, if this wasn't enough, 3 players brought their A++ game with a 25th Anniversary Baum frame; Limited Edition Chris King hubset, bb, and headset (only 5 made in the world); and as icing on the very stacked cake, Shimano's brand new Dura Ace 9270 group set. Holy Tintinnabulation Batman! Yes please." - Phillip
