Nathan’s dirtrop

Nathan went all out on this build! From frame design to finishwork and all parts in between. You can see the amount of effort we all put in for this to be his daily driver and quiver killer. The custom geometry is fit to his body, riding style, and where it'll primarily be ridden. It's... Continue Reading →

tbt 2015: Nicholas’ 29/27.5+

This was one of the more recognizable bikes in the bikepacking world, having been all over the world and being ridden during the creation of the Baja Divide. Also because it’s antique pink and had the first portage handle since the Sam Braxton bikes of the 80’s. Nicholas wrote a great blog about it below.... Continue Reading →

My Instagram account was suspended because it “didn’t follow their community guidelines”… no warning just gone and I have no idea why. The first time I disagreed and someone emailed apologizing for the mistake. The second time they asked for a verification selfie holding a piece of paper with my name, Instagram handle, and a...

Slow and Sandy…

Dylan wrote up his trip on the Anne Beadell Highway in Australia, a tour that's been in the making for years. I built his frame, fork, and two racks in 2018 before he moved down there and it was by far the biggest endeavor i'd undertaken so I'm happy to see it carried him and... Continue Reading →

Carrie’s 650 gravel bike

Building smaller frames is a challenge and one of the best reasons for people go custom. Seems like most my customers are at the ends of the bell curve on height. For the smaller frames especially standover matters and steepening seat tube angle actually does something more than check that box on the latest trend.... Continue Reading →

The Portage Handle

In 2015 I befriended Nicholas Carman who had a blog Gypsy by Trade. I loved reading about his bikepacking travels and offered to make him a frame. I could tell he had an interest in custom framebuilding and would be a great ambassador for Meriwether at a time when i was starting out. I offered... Continue Reading →

Kurstin’s longtail fatbike

Kurstin was looking for a longtail fatbike that he could load up and go get lost all over Nevada. The ability to carry a lot of water and food is the main reason certain (crazy) people love longtail fatbikes. There's more storage space, they are stable when loaded up with the long wheelbase, and the... 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 →
