DAY THREE: THE MULTICOLORED MOSAICToday's Breathtaking Build has a roundabout kind of story. This bike was never supposed to exist. Originally, this bike was a Mosaic GS-1, built with one specific purpose in mind, above all others: The infamous, brutal, and equally breathtaking Dirty Kanza, the mother of all gravel races. Unfortunately, fate had other plans in mind - soon after the GS-1 was delivered, it was snatched from its owner's garage, never to see the flint rock of Kansas. In response, Mosaic, in a magnanimous gesture, allowed the GS-1's owner to take head welder Aaron Barcheck's personal GT-1 on a journey of self-discovery at Kanza. In return, the bereaved GS-1 owner took things up a notch and put an order in for his own Mosaic GT-1. This is the result, a gravel racer built with a bell and all the whistles.
While in most of the world of cycling, titanium is left raw, we tend to treat the topic with a bit more ambivalence. Meet Boulder's finest, wrapped in a stunning paint scheme from VeloColour in Toronto, Canada. There are no decals here, and like Baum Cycles, every detail is masked and hand-painted, right down to the multi-colored stripes and Mosaic logo, a window to the bike's raw Ti soul.Flat mount brakes shed a good bit of weight for "road-ish" disc applications, and look extremely clean on ENVE's GRD gravel fork.
