Cyclist Tom Kunich said it best. As an avid biker myself, I love a sturdy frame that can hit the trails without giving me a beating. Let’s go for a ride on the Liteville 601 by builder 1corn.
This build is mostly Technic pieces, which provided 1corn with plenty of rigidity in the frame, essential for a good mountain bike. It looks like the builder was dedicated to making this function with all the different orientations used to model the frame. You just have to appreciate its pragmatism.
Now, this is a fixed gear, so the hills are not going to be kind to our action figure-sized readers. Sorry, guys. Still, the fact that the builder made this model’s drivetrain actually work is fantastic. The dual suspension ensures you’ll have a good time on your downhill rides. The builder uses spring suspension pieces with different grades of resistance for the front and back. The pieces are smart both for the spacing available and for how similar they are to their respective, real-world counterparts. You might lose energy going over rugged terrain, but at least it’ll be a smooth ride! Plus, those tires look like they’ve got a good grip, which really helps!
The brick-built sections of this model are limited, but they achieve details and colors that really round out the build. Plus, it looks like more could be added to customize the frame to your liking. The orange contrasts the black well and reminds me of the style of my own beloved Trek, though I went with lime green. There are no brakes, which isn’t really “necessary” on a fixed gear bike, but be prepared to skid to a stop at the end of a big hill!
