Kris from 44 Bikes recently completed a cross bike for his wife, Lynn. Pictured above, it’s anything but a standard issue bike. Ultegra Di2, sinister black paint, disc brakes, Thomson, Cane Creek and ENVE, this bike looks great but the back-story is even better…
See more below and check out the entire process at the 44 Bikes Flickr.
I love how even the simplest Bishop road bike has so much attention to detail. Seriously, look at that lug thinning! See more of Curtis’ road at the Bishop Flickr.
Just when I thought Speedvagen’s paint jobs couldn’t get any more elaborate, they post this beauty to the Speedbloggen. Head on over to see more photos, including the process Coat utilized on the finish.
Nobody does camo like Tracko! His splinter camo design is one of my favorite kit patterns and now, he’s put a splinter spin on the staple white jersey. It’s summer, but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear snow camo. Bibs, shorts, men’s jersey and a women’s jersey are now up for pre-order.
Pre-order the Snow Splinter Kit from now until July 9th at Trackosaurus Rex.
Many would consider a wrist watch a luxury item and by all means, rightfully so, especially in the digital age. For those of us who still wear watches, it’s nice to see domestic production returning to the US in such a niche market. These days, there are millions of options, all of which look great, but when you begin to weed down those with casings made in Taiwan and China, suddenly, you’re looking at an investment.
I don’t know many people who can walk into a luxury boutique and drop thousands of dollars on a Rolex, Heuer or an IWC, but seeing something made in Los Angeles for around a grand isn’t that bad. At all. Especially considering that no one else is manufacturing their stainless casings, sapphire crystals, hands, faces and bands in the USA like Weiss Watch Company is.
As a manufacturer of products built on the belief that quality is of the utmost importance, Chris King is always eager to learn about other like-minded manufacturers. One such business is Portland manufacturer Grovemade, makers of modern and sophisticated wood based office supplies and personal electronic accessories. See photos at Chris King!
A while back, I featured Andre, my new intern’s Stoemper Cross. Well, since then, he got in a wreck and folded the top tube in half. He was pretty bummed, as you might imagine, but luckily for him, a friend who used to work at Co-Motion had this magenta Lucifer frameset sitting in his garage since the 2005 Interbike when he bought it…
Makers and Riders enter the tech short market with their new 10″ inseam Neoshell shorts. Head over to Makers and Riders for full details.
I spend a lot of time checking out what frame builders have been up to, mostly via their social media, but I gotta say, I was stoked to see something as clever as this on the Map Cycles Flickr. Such well thought-out lamp placement Mitch!
