The old (and new) guard

I started riding mountain bikes with these guys when there were fewer than a handful of bike brands all with no suspension, only one wheel size, and three-finger moto-style Diacomp brake levers were needed to slow you down but left fewer fingers on the bars to keep you from getting rattled off. But we did... Continue Reading →

Some pics from Spring

Nathan's dirtdrop in it's new homeland, out meeting the other Meriwether's of AK. Not a bad view...check out the finishwork by Agave too. Matt's allroad heading to Agave for some finishwork, more when it's built up. So much moisture, it's a boom year here New arch spotted, winter up high for awhile longer. Back at...

Zach’s Slackpacker

If you told me 20 years ago i'd be building a Titanium hardtail for Zach White someday I'd have laughed out loud. Mostly because i didn't think i'd be building Ti frames right now, but also because I can't remember him ever riding (or wanting to ride) a hardtail. He is the first Professional downhiller...

More of Kurstin’s 29″ Torker

This one pays tribute to the late 70's - early 80's BMX Torker brand bikes. This was a technical build with twin top tubes going from the headtube to the dropouts, a gusset at the head tube to add some flare and beef to the front end, a unicrown fork with off-set dropouts like the...

tbt Chris’ klunk

Chris has a few Meriwether's but this is my favorite. Built as a 27.5plus or 29x2.5 with the seen sleeved unicrown fork. It's got Rocker dropouts, internal port in the downtube for a dropper post, and one of my favorite greens but I'd have chosen orange decals and bits 🙂

tbt Bones to Blue

I'm not sure why i didn't write this up back in 2017, just for simplicity I'll just add captions to the photos. Bones to Blue is a bikepacking event/race that starts in Truckee, CA and rides up and over Donner Pass, than around Lake Tahoe on the bike-accessible sections of the Tahoe Rim Trail, and...

tbt Erik’s 29/27.5+

This is Erik's 1st of 3 bikes, another repeat offender. Back in 2015, the combo of 29/27.5+ was all the rage because Bikepacking was also becoming popular and having a frame that could fit a plus tire for touring while a narrower 29" tire for daily trail use was very appealing. I'd say the majority... Continue Reading →

tbt Andrew’s 27.5+

Andrew started Bedrock Bags some years ago and I've had a handful (bag-ful?) of bags made by him over the years. I learned of Bedrock when visiting a friend in Durango in 2014 when we stopped in at Revolution Cycles and chatting with Joey who now happens to work at Bedrock too. The bike is...

Tim’s Ti gravel bike

Tim is getting himself a nice 50th birthday present here with a Ti gravel bike with Shimano GRX, ENVE stem, seatpost, fork, and G23 wheels. The blue bits include a White Industries headset which matches pretty nicely with the Wolftooth seat tube collar and bar tape on Ritchey Butano bars. It's hard to find a... Continue Reading →

tbt Craig’s fatbike/29+

Craig's fat/29+ is a true multi-purpose overlander that calls the PNW it's home. He swaps between 26x4.8" or 29x3" wheelsets depending on the ride and conditions. I built it with a sleeved unicrown fat fork but it has suspension-adjusted geometry for a 120mm fork. The powdercoat is so awesome when it hits the sunlight...

Ron’s Ti 27.5plus

Ron was convinced to give a Meriwether a try by his good friend Dale who has been riding a Ti 27.5 for a few years. We had a bit of a delay (understatement) in the Shimano parts arriving because of the Covid supply shortage, but eventually enough parts arrived and I was able to find... Continue Reading →

Sue’s Snackpacker

Sue spends a ton of time on her bike at home and around the world. She's up in AK and was influenced by Nick's pink bike some years ago. Before this bike she had a Mone' La Roca and loved it but wanted a little longer version to fit her better and get a little... Continue Reading →

tbt Sean’s singlespeed fatbike

That one is a crazy lookin frame! There isn't another like it out there with the curved wishbone seatstays. Sean wanted a frame and fork for his riding around central Alaska. It's suspension adjusted geometry, high BB to clear all that snow, has rear rack mounts, short chainstays with Rocker dropouts, and fits 26x4.8's, 29x3's,... Continue Reading →
