After I shot photos of Chris Bishop’s blue Drillium Revival Track Bike, a customer named Eduardo contacted him to make a similar bike, but as a singlespeed. I’d say it’s pretty damn close too. Especially the Drillium Revival cranks. See more at the Bishop Flickr.
I poached this off the Fairdale blog and had to share!
How about some East Coast MTB racing?
This one’s for all you big guys… 60cm of Mosaic SSCX fun.
FBM’s long-awaited hardcourt bike polo frameset, the Ballista is now in stock. So far, everyone that’s ridden these frames have been really stoked on their handling, weight and geometry. See more at FBM.

I’ve done this before. Your front tire gets shredded and all you have laying around is a red-backed Vittoria Randonneur. The difference is, I never took a second to document it. Nice one Walton! See more of the Walt’s world at his Tumblr.
Winning best finish at NAHBS seemed to be a shoe-in for Indy Fab at this year’s NAHBS. Especially when PPG gave them access to their newest color: Sun Kissed Orange. I posted the most obscure photo, because you’ve really gotta go over to IF’s Blog to see the photos NotStock Photography took in the woods outside their New Hampshire shop!

The work of Chris Bishop keeps filling my Flickr feed and the latest singlespeed has enough details to let you spend a considerable amount of time drooling over it on your Saturday afternoon. Head over to the Bishop Flickr to see more!
I love this ad Soma made to announce their 2014 Rush frameset. Head over to Soma for more information.
This NAHBS I learned two things about 44 Bikes. The first being Kris and I are the exact same size – which comes in handy for any planned trips to New Hampshire I might have to make. Second, Kris doesn’t build anything that he can’t or wouldn’t ride himself. Although, I suppose if someone really wanted a road bike, he’d make an exception.
Regionally, the roads surrounding Kris’ shop and home are quite shitty. Rutted, washboarded, washed-out and rocky, the tracks and trails take quite the beating throughout the winter, so his bikes are tailored to this terrain. For NAHBS this year, Kris brought all three of his own bikes to show off, because, well. It just makes sense.
Here’s the show favorite from his booth: a murdered out singlespeed 29′r with a nice, fat Whisky Parts fork, Industry 9 wheels and a rear end so tight that it’d be hard to… No, wait, it’s so black metal that… Anyway, I digress.
