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!
Remember that Mavic 125 ANS project I covered earlier this year? Well, bike by bike, they’re hitting eBay via the Pro’s Closet.
Check out more information below!
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!
A Bishop road bike is a grail for many cyclists and with details like those found in Jim’s new classic road, it’s easy to see why. Check out more photos at the Bishop Flickr. I seriously love this bike!
The newest bike of the week from Above Category has racing pedigree written all over it. Red and white will always look well balanced, especially with Campagnolo Record. See more of this Mosaic RS-1 at Above Category’s blog.

They look great. Over at Trackosaurus Rex, Kyle’s got a few photos if you want to see more.
Orange bikes will forever have a special place in cyclists’ hearts. Maybe it’s the allure of Molteni? Or maybe they just look great, especially from Baum. See more of this beauty at the Baum Flickr.
I love when Richard Sachs goes on a photo binge on his Flickr, because in every batch he uploads is a gem like this. Head over to the Richard Sachs Flickr and check out all-sizes for use on your desktop and laptop.
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.
This build took a bit for me to warm up to it, but there’s something about it that would heat up even the coldest base miles. The bar tape, saddle, fork, headset and hubs are all a different tone of green and yet it works.
