If you like clean, simple builds and you want a frame made in the USA by Waterford, check out the Orange One frames by Milwaukee. This recent customer build up came out super clean. See more at the Ben’s Cycle Blog. Who else is making affordable production singlespeed, track and road frames in the States anymore?
Michael Sieben and Taj Mihelich have been friends since the early days of T-1. So it only made sense that when their respective companies, Roger Skateboards and Fairdale blossomed, they should do a collaboration. Skateboarding is a great way to get around but by the time you get to the spot or the park, you’re already toast, especially in the Summer heat. So these two businessmen thought, hey, why not make a bike that embodies both of our brands and add some pizzazz to it?
The Fairdale Parser Roger Skateboards edition is just that. A simple commuter, stripped down to the basics and with a little extra bounce for the buck. This limited run of 50 will come in Fairdale sizing of 10 small completes, 30 medium, and 10 large. They’ll be built, as shown, minus the hand brake (production model will have a coaster brake), will feature the new Fairdale Archer Bars, a complete Roger skateboard and the new Fairdale Cargo Skaterack.
This is their final sample, done in-house with spraypaint, so expect a much nicer production paint. Retail is $800 and they can be ordered through Full Factory Distribution via your LBS, late May 2012.

Now this looks like a lot of fun. The BLK MRKT team has been working on the NSF line for some time now and they’ve finally nailed down what they’ve come to call the Project Norris Complete Build. I see a ton of Profile Fixed components on there! Check out the full details below.
