Who You Calling Fat? Portland Design Works’ The Fat Stevens™ Fat Bike Pump

Portland Design Works recognizes niches within niche markets. Like for example, a portable fatbike pump. High volume tires are a pain in the ass to inflate on a trail and The Fat Stevens™ is capable of tackling even the most rotund tires… Check out more at the Portland Design Works Kickstarter, which includes a special edition carrying case by Blaqpaks and see some photos below.

DSC_3430

Eric from Winter Bicycles describes his latest build, the Peregrinator as a “full rando with Di2/ Hydro robot build.” Yes, rando, not Rambo. Although the latter seems fitting with this build kit. Talk about going full-on commando assault steeze… The Peregrinator comes locked and loaded with Nitto components, A23 rims, Compass Tires, White Industries, Schmidt generator hub, internal wiring with Ultegra Di2, Winter racks, a Winter stem and a Ruthworks SF Luggage bag.

Shine, please, shine, Peregrinator. You’re ready for anything. Check out more detail photos below…

Firefly Bicycles: Touring Bike with Campagnolo 11
FireflyTourer

There’s something elegant about a beautifully raked steel fork on a titanium frameset and that’s only the beginning to the over-the-top detailing on this new Firefly tourer. E3 lights, SON hub, fenders, killer seatpost, custom ano, Pasela tires, Campy and yeah, bar end shifters.

Head over to the Firefly Tumblr for more spy shots.

Silca’s New Made in the USA Impero Ultimate Frame Pump
Screen Shot 2015-05-18 at 3.57.45 PM

I tend to get giddy about projects, especially those which were born in the USA, or at least in this case resurrected. Silca’s a company with its roots deeply embedded in cycling history. For over 100 years, this company has been a part of inflation technology (yes, I just said that). After the name was purchased and relocated to the USA, things have been changing rapidly. For the better.

That $400 floor pump caused a bit of a ruckus, as did the $40 air chucks yet for some reason the thought of a $165 frame pump doesn’t seem like a huge leap. Especially when you consider the detailing and that a made overseas Topeak or the like is still $50. The Impero Ultimate has been reborn. It’s a beast of metal, with no plastic parts and it’s machined in the USA. Best of all, it comes in BLACK!

Without me slobbering too much here with copy, why don’t you just check out the specs and more photos below, or order one at Silca. I just did.
