BOTM: ICE U.P. ON A STICK - part 2:

Andy Kessler - 05-Oct-2018
For those of you that have not seen the intro video of the current BOTM check it out its my favourite one ever.

Max has build a beautiful and unique NEW U.P. mixing tradition and innovation. The Klein paint job is legendary. I was in the same situation as Max. I was dreaming about this paint job and frame for a long time but back then was just to expensive for a student. I ended up with a Gary Fisher CR7. Purple front triangle and a Chrome rear triangle. I still know the guy that has it now and I would have bought it back but the current owner took the paint off which is a no go (sorry Stefan!).

After this flashback off around 30 years lets get back and here you go with the beauty shots of Max New U.P.

Wow, that looks just amazing. At what point does a BOTM become just too nice to ride?

Hi Colin, I had that problem already once with my Cento... It was just to nice to be. I just prefer riding over cleaning so I need something that can be dirty!

Just bought a Open +, what a bike. Struggling with insertion length, have a size Med frame, 125mm Dropper. I’m literally mm from a perfect fit. It appears either the water bottle bolt or tubular frame shape in the seat tube is minimizing the ability to insert more. Any ideas? Perhaps a more shallow seat you may know of or ways to improvise?
