NAHBS – North American Handmade Bicycle Show – Held in Sacramento, California from March 15 to 17, 2019, the show features builders from North America and beyond. The mission of the first annual NAHBS and every show thereafter is a simple one, showcase the talents and ideas among the best builders of handmade bicycles in the world.
Meet Mike from Thomson Bike Products, in operation since 1996 out of Macon, Georgia. The company originally went into business in 1981 producing components for the aerospace industry, that side of the business is alive and well in 2019.
At NAHBS, Thomson presented a prototype titanium gravel bike kitted out (to be expected) with a full line of Thomson’s components. Also on the bike, a prototype Titanium seatpost, a virtual mirror image of their current designs. Release dates on the frame and seatpost are unknown at this time.

I love this prototype gravel bike. But please, by all that is holy, DO NOT force us to buy it with a carbon fork. The reason I am interested is because of the vulnerabilities of carbon components.
You would prefer a steel fork?
Just curious what you would prefer? Would guess most anything else would be a mismatch with that frame. Perfectly happy with my carbon fork on my Ti No.22 Great Divide, and I am 185#.
