7 Bikes for 7 Wonders | Mt Hood

This summer's 7 Bikes for 7 Wonders is gearing up for an exciting ride. Seven of Oregon's best bike builders were asked to build a bike for their assigned wonder and they're wonderful. Each bike will be hidden in their corresponding wonder area for a lucky adventurer to find and keep. This beautiful Wolfhound Cycles Bike was built for Mt Hood. Read details about the Mt Hood Bike below.
“The first thing that went through my mind was that it needed to be able to handle anything, because around Mt. Hood there’s lift-assist, free rides, full downhill… everything, even including all-day single-track rides through the wilderness,” he recalls. And that was perfect for him. “The core principal behind my designs has
always been to make something that could do anything and everything, so this was the perfect opportunity to put that into practice.”
And that’s what he’s done. His single-speed mountain bike incorporates all his favorite features, and still comes in at an astonishingly light 28 pounds. There are beefy 25-inch tires, a suspension front fork with 5 to 6 inches of play, and an adjustable-height seatpost for riding in a bike park or other extreme terrain.
