Man. Some of the designs that Firefly is doing with anodizing their titanium frames are so wild! See more of this geometric seat tube at the Firefly Flickr.
Here’s a new company trying to bust into the made in the USA merino apparel scene. It’s a Kickstarter but if this brand makes it, I’ll be buying some gear. Now just make a crew neck!
No matter what MTB I’m currently reviewing, I love getting out on my IF. Sure, I’ve gotta be mindful with my lines, but it’s a no-nonsense shred sled!
I’ve been shooting a lot with the Fuji X-T1 these days, so there will be a lot of little posts like this.
A few of my favorite things: Colonel EH Taylor Bourbon and my Geekhouse on a sunny Friday… After seven weeks of sobriety I’ve been taking it easy with bourbon. I’ve had a few glasses over the past week, but I’ve learned to enjoy it.
I don’t know why I’m posting this, all I know is I dropped a lot of weight not drinking for a month. Like down from 200lbs to 180lbs. It’s insane…

Eric from Winter is slayyyyyyying it this year! Here’s the latest, the Sean-nós frameset, a sportif road:
“The Sean-nós is designed to run modest width tyres and mudguards under a mid reach brake. The heat treated, thin wall steel tubing is joined with clean, crisply carved continental style lugs. The quickly raked fork and open scalloped drop out treatment are reminiscent of an older style. The Sean-nos is equally at home in the mountains, rain and rougher roads The racing green metallic paint and gold box lining are provided by Keith Anderson.
54 seat tube and 55 top tube with an optional 120mm Winter French point stem.
Yikes! The crew at Speedvagen have been working on something extra special with their new 2014 Overt Road Machine. Head over to the Vanilla Flickr for more incredible details like that seat mast medallion!
The crew at Firefly have been experimenting with anodizing patterns on lugs for future projects and this test sample came out so sick. Head over to the Firefly Flickr for more.
People ask why I give FBM so much love here on the site. My answer is simple: they continue to push American production. This video from ESPN shows how Crandall and the boys keep this steel ship afloat. Head over to ESPN to check it out.
