Hello and welcome,

Supporting local businesses is great since they are usually going to support you!

It would appear that they are a brand new bike company based out of their aircraft company. I would hope that for $6000 their bike (they only make one type) would be of high quality with high quality parts, but that is purely an assumption. Also, you won't be able to get one for a couple months (I'd need the time to save up for one!) so you may find something readily available, with a known history, and probably cheaper. If you end up getting one please provide some feedback here so others can benefit from your experiences.
Take care,
Jesper

some build airplanes and then bicycles, but others do the opposite haha: https://www.wright-brothers.org/Information_Desk/Just_the_Facts/Bicycles/Wright_Bicycles.htm

anyway, these titanium gravel bikes have great looks and i am sure that the frame is of high quality. you might become one of their "early adopters" and help them enter the market ... if you are willing to support local business with 6k
