44 Bikes: Murdered Out Huntsman
44Bikes_Huntsman

The latest from Kris’ garage is truly drool-worthy. This Huntsman is about as black as a bike can get, save for the 44 Bikes’ insignia and a few product labels. These are some of my favorite disc “all-road” / cross bikes out there… even with disc brakes!

Thanks for sharing this one, Kris!

Errin’s Box Dog Pelican Randonneur
Errin's Box Dog Pelican Randonneur-21

Yesterday I went down to the LA River Camp Coffee meet-up to drink some coffee and see what this weekly gathering is all about. While I was there, I shot Errin’s Box Dog Pelican rando bike, set up with panniers.

This bike was made by Banjo Bicycles – they’re made by Winter now – in production runs and are sold by Box Dog Bikes in small batches. Errin’s has seen some mileage, which you can follow along on his blog Frontage Roads. I love randonneur bikes that become commuters when they’re not being drug through the shit on a brevet.

See more details in the Gallery and many thanks to Errin for organizing the LA River Camp Coffee meetups, more on that tomorrow!

James at Niner Bikes Knows What’s Up!
Niner_Camo_Cross

When your job is to design bikes and graphics for a living, you tend to take your own bikes seriously. That’s what James at Niner did with his own BSB 9. Like most people these days, James got bit by the camo bug but didn’t want to just do a standard paint finish, so he found a local guy just getting into hydrographics and began to problem solve how to paint the fork, leaving the frame matte black with a blaze orange color accents.

The end result rules.
