Mad Fiber’s High Tech Wheels are Made in the USA
Mad Fiber's High Tech Wheels are Made in the USA

A wise man once said “Don’t buy upgrades, ride up grades” and those words still hold true today but for those who are looking for cutting edge wheel technology to aid in their performance, the name Mad Fiber might come to mind. Now, I am the last person on the face of the Earth that wants or needs carbon wheels like this but they’re not even mine. So technically, “Don’t buy upgrades, borrow them from the rep” fits here.

Check out more below.

Bishop Bikes: Daniel’s Modern Classic Road
BishopMatte

I’ve been watching this bike being cut, carved and finished over on the Bishop Bikes Flickr but seeing it in all its matte black glory is making me jealous. Daniel wanted a modern steel bike with classic lines, much like my Bishop and boy did Chris deliver. Check out more shots of this ENVE-laced beast at the Bishop Bikes Flickr.

Chris Bishop has so many NOS Columbus tubesets and the MS, or multi-shaped, tubes are some of the most unique. Here’s a profile section of the tubes. From left to right, non drive chainstay, drive side chainstay, top tube, down tube and Air seat stays. Keep at it Chris. This is a great photo.

Bishop Bikes: Reflection
Chris Bishop

I am honored to have a bike made by this man. When you buy a Bishop, you not only get a frame, you get a world’s experience (literally) in bicycle racing, collecting and just good old fashioned work ethic. Chris began on a bike like many of us did, on a BMX, pedaling around the neighborhood. Then he began racing, until the bike messenger life caught him in the late 90′s. After traveling to race the CMWCs, he returned to the States where he enrolled in frame building classes under Steve Garn of Brew’s watchful eye.

Now Bishop Bikes is a world-renown name in frame building. With a new web site on the way, Chris uploaded some photos of his life in bikes over on his Flickr. I highly recommend you take a look!
