Pete’s steel fatbike

This was a long one coming for Pete and I'm honored to have him as a customer. If you don't know him he's won several ITI's in Alaska and is an overall badass and nice guy. He initially wanted this frameset and rack to do the ITI in 2021 but then...Covid. The out and back... Continue Reading →

Scott’s Ti fatbike

Long time no post! I'll get back posting bike builds and adventures this year. This fatbike was for Scott who has a couple of Meriwether's already but this one will nicely fill out the quiver on the fat end. Built for 27.5 x 4.5" tires or 26 x 5's with Fatback carbon Big Su wheelset... Continue Reading →

TBT 2009: Dela Marin

On the actual Solstice i learned Gravy had shared my 2009 post from the insularly popular Dela Marin that has been going on since 1986. More words and pics at my old blog here! I didn't even realize that old site is still up and active, pretty wild to look back at it, and that's... Continue Reading →

Year of the bike?

In a year unlike an other it's been hard to focus on the good, but a surprising trend is that it's been a good year for bikes. Bike shops sold out of everything and had month's long waits for service. It appears the definition of 'essential worker' has expanded to include bike shop employees and... Continue Reading →

Thirty-six no.2

After building my first 36er I knew i'd have to make one for myself too one day. Well that day has come and I'm wondering why it took me so long. One benefit of waiting was the new release of carbon rims made by Braun/Alchemist. They're about 630g each and 32h unlike the other alloy... Continue Reading →

Craig’s dirtdrop 29er

Craig was looking for a bike to ride around the dirt roads and trails of Nevada City, CA. He has an Ibis Hakkalugi that he was using but he was looking for something that could fit bigger tires and rode more like a mountain bike, and had more features of a MTB like a dropper... Continue Reading →

Jake’s Ti gravel bike

Jake is one of my first Sacramento customers somehow. I'm thankful for the referral from Tim at Joule Cycling that told Jake about my new Titanium offerings. Tim ordered a sea foam green segmented fork some years ago for his custom steel singlespeed. Jake wanted a bike that would be perfect for both cross racing... Continue Reading →

Erik’s Ti 29+

Erik is a repeat offender, having a matte black steel 27.5+/29er frame and fork, a blue steel 700x40 cross/gravel frameset, and now a Ti 29+ frame to rip around Colorado. He asked for some Bontrager-style wishbone seatstays and i'm happy to have obliged because i think they turned out great. I love wishbone stays myself... Continue Reading →

Scott’s Ti 650b Allrounder

Scott's is my 8th Titanium frame, built in February. He lives in Bend, Oregon and just shared some great pics of the bike while riding out in his backyard -- a mix of BLM roads and trails that seem to go on forever, lucky guy! He wanted something that would primarily be used on dirt... Continue Reading →
