I forgot to post some photos up from Isaac's touring bike build. I was under a self-induced deadline to get this thing built for his annual Chillbilly ride last Saturday so lost track. Some fun old-school things I've never done before on this bike like under BB cable routing for the downtube mounted shifters, and... Continue Reading →
Sean sent some pictures of his bike all built up! Jordan Low did the paint work, Sean built it and took the photos. NAHBS ready even if I'm not. I already blabbed about it HERE so i'll refrain and just show his pictures. Hope you enjoy.
Donny wanted a lifelong bike, something he could rail on from Crested Butte to Chile. He wanted to have a stiff rear triangle for out of the saddle climbing, and a rig to bikepack around South America where he spends a lot of time being a ski guide. The geometry could take many routes with... Continue Reading →
Sean's frame and fork are done! I am not sure what to call this bike, but it's a true all-rounder. I built this frame based off traditional touring geometry with angles of 72/73 (HTA/STA) with a custom fit based on his dimensions and previous bikes he likes. It fits up to 2.4" tires (he'll be...

...and i'm definitely not just saying that because I made it 🙂 Some info on the build: XX1 crank, X01 rear derailleur and cassette and shifter, 120/100mm Fox Talas CTD tapered 15QR fork with remote lever to switch between CTD settings (sussy-swanky!), Race Face Turbine 90mm stem, Answer Protaper 20/20 bars, Paul's Love levers with...

Some photos of Power's new cross bike. It's going to be her training, 'credit-card' touring bike, and general all-rounder to ride into the ground when she's not racing. She wanted to run mustache bars so i shortened the top tube a bit to account for the increased reach of those bars. Pretty standard geometry for... Continue Reading →
Elevated chainstay bikes usually just plain ugly. But they're practical for a few reasons. They prevent chainsuck and allow for shorter chainstays for a given tire size than on a traditional double-diamond frame without any dimpling/crimping of the tubing. They are less stiff laterally at the bottom bracket but especially on a fatbike running 5psi..I... Continue Reading →
