A little about Forty Four Bikes, courtesy of the company’s website:

“My Mission: Kristofer Henry / Owner – Forty Four Bikes. I strongly believe there are few things more satisfying than riding a bicycle and the shared experience”.

“I pour all of my passion and experience into handcrafted, custom tig welded bicycle frames made from my shop in New Hampshire. I build a wide array of custom bicycles including mountain, cyclocross, road, singlespeed and touring bicycles”.

The drop bar rig is owned by Cam Fraser, promoter extraordinaire with Blue Mountain Revival Productions. The flat bar rig is owned by a mate of Cam’s, Yuri Eliashevsky, and one of the first Forty Fours to be fabricated. Stating the obvious, recurring theme with both bikes is stealth black.
