Well, he’s not selling it himself and it’s not your everyday bike. This one’s dripping with Campagnolo Pista. The price is $1,100 complete, as shown on Tracko’s Flickr. Head over to Tracko to see more details.
This past weekend, some buddies and I went on a little camping trip. Some of us had to be back in town the following day, while others went on through Monday. The lucky bastards… One of the early returnees, along with me, was Jonathan. It was his first camping trip here in Austin, since recently relocating from Omaha, so we wanted it to be a good one.
There’s more to come on the ride itself (oh and it was a good one), but I thought I’d take a minute to feature his rather unique Surly Disc Trucker…
Yoinks! Do you even Rando, bro? JP Weigle has the scoop on this 1950’s R. Ducheron restored randonneur bike at his Flickr. Ever want to own the winner from the best restored bike of the Cirque du Cyclisme in 2007? Well, holler at Peter via his Flickr.
Small-time frame builders can deviate from their normal M.O. and create more precision machines with very little issue, which is why I think framebuilders will forever offer a better fit to your specific cycling needs.
Agendas aside, this Shand Cycles Stooshie cyclocross race machine is based off a Stoater platform, with a few geometric tweaks, tuned in for CX races… oh and camo never hurt! See more at the Shand Flickr!
Golden Saddle Rides: Haunted Hollows Stinner Off-Roadie
Photos and words by Kyle Kelley
I guess this bike would be a little more Halloweeny if it was black and orange, but what the HELL, it’s not!
Stinner Frameworks provided the skeleton, and we installed the costume.
Matt, the owner of this bike knew exactly what he wanted. A no nonsense road bike that could take large enough tires to really get dirty. The Velo Orange Grand Cru brakes are what made his decision to go standard caliber, over a cantilever or Mini-Moto style brake. Besides the Chris King bits, the bike is outfitted with a full Ultegra kit. The ENVE bar and seatpost are keeping Matt comfy on long dirty rides. Be it road or dirt the bike is always outfitted with some skin walls, duh.
It’s hard sometimes to visualize a bike’s potential from just a frame photo, which is probably why Thomas built up one of those 29’r framesets as a complete for a photo shoot. I still think this is one of the nicer 29’r production frames I’ve seen on the market and at that price, who can complain? Lovely. See more at the Horse Cycles Flickr and pricing at Horse Cycles.

I don’t know why, I but I really love these photos that Dan shot at Richard Sach’s shop. I also love that Team RS works on their own bikes, the night before a weekend of racing to build team dynamic.

Live in the Philly area? Need a new road bike? Got a little extra coin saved up for something special? Well, you could be in luck. Erik from Winter Bicycles will be at the show and he’s selling this Sean-Nós road bike, complete!

With Rapha Travel heading to OZ for the Tour Down Under, they contacted one of Australia’s finest framebuilders to create a commemorative road bike. This black, yellow and green Corretto just screams Baum, with Busyman bar tape and Rapha insignia, it’s bound to be someone’s dream bike.

In the world of custom hardtail mountain bikes, there exist a few key factors that determine shredability. The most important, at least in my opinion, being the head tube angle. Next, is the rear chainstay length and both of which, affect wheelbase and thus how flickable the bike is. I knew I wanted Seth Rosko to build it…
Follow the key measurements, or increments with a solid build kit and you’ve got a hardtail that can behave like a trail bike, under the right rider of course…
