Ryan’s Ti 29er singlespeed

I don't build many complete bikes, especially as complete as this one. Ryan had a vision of what he wanted to get built for his 40th birthday and what you see below is the result. It took longer than expected to get the parts (new normal) so it didn't arrive on time to celebrate with... 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 →

Kevin’s Pinion fatbike

I’m catching up with posting about the bikes of 2020 I’m surprised how many were fatbikes! I’ve not had many fatbike orders the last few years but 2020 This one was a doozy! It was my first Pinion gearbox bike and that is a new learning experience in itself. From what I’ve seen and heard... Continue Reading →

Kurstin’s longtail fatbike

There's more storage space, they are stable when loaded up with the long wheelbase, and the... Continue Reading →

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 →

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 →
