Melissa’s Fatcycle

This fatbike will be really fun to ride. I pushed with normal chainstays here so am "only" using the Specialized Ground Control 4.6" tire on the rear to give some room on the 430mm chainstays.  A Surly Lou 4.8" fits but with not enough room for comfort. Orange Nextie carbon tubeless ready rims, Surly Bud... Continue Reading →

Donny’s 29er

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...

Sean’s fat road cross tourer

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...

Jacks Alfine belt-drive commuter tourer

This bike has been in the making for awhile because it took me awhile to research all the different aspects of the build.  Many firsts for me - Alfine and a Gates Centertrack belt-drive being the main ones that added some complexity to the frame.  Jack wanted the ultimate commuter for getting to work in...

Funnest bike I’ve ever ridden

...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...

Fatbikes on Donner

These are my two fatbikes. I was going to blab on about how different they are on dirt vs. snow and between eachother on the two mediums, but i decided I need more data. So for now, here are some photos from last weekend's ride up on Donner Pass. I took both bikes up and... Continue Reading →

Fat Sherpa tour

I've always loved how bikes can take you to places you may not go otherwise.  Backcountry skiing is much the same and it's a close second in my genetic makeup.  Combining the two is something I've dabbled in before (spring peak skiing around Brainard Lake, Colorado) but never in winter.  Fatbiking has exploded the possibilities...

My “road” bike

Ok, its an "all-types-of-road bike" really - for all the riding I do on different types of roads around here plus some trail.  So many new names for this type of bike that it's kinda silly. Reinventing what's already been done, again.  Talk to Bruce Gordon, this style of bike's been around for decades. Tom... Continue Reading →

PJMac’s frame progress

I'm 3/4 done building a 29er frame for Paul, mastermind of Cross Propz - portable cyclocross barriers for training rides and practice. Pretty ingenious design where you can literally thrown it on the ground and the bungee cord connected PVC pipe barrier nearly self-assembles itself in seconds. Paul has been waiting a long time for... Continue Reading →
