State of the Union

I've been neglecting the website and blog for no other reason that i've been busy. My Dad passed away in May and I haven't been inspired to write with all that's been going.  I'm still building bikes but at a slower rate (and fewer) since I'm getting less orders and overall interest.  Each frame is...

Gravel bike FOR SALE!

Seen here is my personal gravel bike that i made in Feb, 2019. The geometry is relaxed for long rides and tours, the bottom bracket height is pretty low but not too low. It's a great riding bike and looks awesome with the metallic sky blue powdercoat that has a light sparkle in the sunlight.... Continue Reading →

I will, however, be walking the floor Saturday and saying hello to builders and seeing their great bike builds.  I'll be the only blond haired and balding skinny white guy wearing a Meriwether...

Trip to Colorado

I don't travel often anymore but each fall i feel a draw to see the changing colors of the aspens and visit the place i lived for the entirety of my adult life until about 6  years ago. The family of friends there has proved hard to beat and i've never felt more welcome and... Continue Reading →

Sierra Scrambler

Well I'm back! I never did really use the blog on the other web page so we'll see if I can actually motivate to write here again. Since moving to California it's been 6 years with a lot of ups and downs. We moved to Foresthill, then 2 years ago to the flatlands of the... Continue Reading →
