You know what was notably missing from the 2022 Enve Builder Round-Up? Bikes made of carbon fiber, titanium, and steel were in plentiful supply, but ones made of aluminum were nowhere to be found. 

That’s a shame given aluminum’s enormous potential as a structural material. Perhaps the inexpensive metal just doesn’t carry enough prestige for some, or maybe custom buyers’ tendency to own their bikes for a long time doesn’t mesh well with aluminum’s undeserved reputation for poor long-term durability. 

Either way, we wrap up our third and final round of coverage from the 2022 Enve Builder Round-Up with an assortment of lovely steel and titanium machines (follow the links to see parts one and two in this series). And don’t worry, aluminum — we’ll see you at another custom show soon enough.
