Nate goes above and beyond.

As we walked the seemingly endless SBT Expo one bike hidden behind the SRAM booth stood out. It wasn’t on display but instead had been seemingly abandoned and hidden from view. This custom Mosaic GT-1 AR is stunning, and best of all it turns out our friend Nate is the owner. So for this extended Labor Day weekend, we are happy to highlight this labor of love.

As a SRAM employee, we were surprised to see Nate has chosen to ride Shimano XT pedals. Maybe it’s for comparison testing????

Nate has been a go-to tech contact at SRAM for ages and has a vast wealth of knowledge on all things bikes, not just SRAM products. So it was no surprise to have him tapping on our shoulder when we snagged it for some photos.

The 1x SRAM XPLR drivetrain has become a popular alternative to the 1x Eagle option that has been borrowed from mountain bikes.

The heavy flake and bright red is spectacular in person. Best of all, it was done in-house at Mosaic.

After working the expo both days in the heat, Nate enjoyed the 60-mile red course on Sunday.
