The show will go on Saturday, which features vintage custom bikes before 1990 and Sunday, which feature any custom bike from 3pm – 8pm with a 10am vintage ride on Saturday before the show. It’ll cost you $5 to attend the show, unless you’re bringing a bike to display.

New for 2016, long-time supporter of US framebuilders, Velo Cult announced their new Custom Program. This initiative launched with two flagship models: a steel Mark Nobilette randonneur and a custom Mosaic frameset. One, inspired by vintage lines and the other a modern day precision machine, crafted from steel or titanium. You could say that there’s something for everyone in there…

I can’t help it. I love touring bikes with big, fat, high volume tires and funky stances. This project in particular was born from the mind and abilities of three important individuals, residing in the Portland area under the Velo Cult Customs umbrella.
This Ahearne Dirt Tourer is a collaboration between three people: Sky from Velo Cult, Chris Igleheart and Ahearne. We’ll start with the most obvious hand: Chris Igleheart‘s segmented fork, which is complimented by the Ahearne rack and frameset. These bikes are 100% custom, can be built with 26″ or 27.5″ wheels, have an optional upgrade of Honjo 90mm Fenders and are rugged enough for even the toughest dirt touring and bikepacking expeditions. One of my favorite details are the braze-ons hidden below the top tube for a strapless bag install.
This is the first in a series of Velo Cult Customs, the line will grow to include road, randonneur, cross and a gravel racer in the coming months.
Contact Velo Cult for pricing and availability.
One of our favorite shops in the Pacific Northwest has a new cycling cap in stock. Made by Double Darn in Portland, these caps feature the new Velo Cult logo and come in two sizes, medium or large. In stock now at Velo Cult.
If you’re in Portland, swing through Velo Cult this Saturday for the screening of Comes with Baggage between 7-10 PM.
There will be a raffle from Velo Cult and Blackburn Design along with a bikepacking Q&A from Limberlost.
Joseph Ahearne‘s bikes, like Curtis Inglis’ bikes, have always piqued my interest. There’s something honest, yet artistic about his designs. He’s not afraid to use a 1″ threaded steerer, curvalicious racks, or yes, a kickstand (Hey, made my job easier!)
This Ahearne Cycles 27.5 dirt tourer is currently parked in Velo Cult and it’s a glimpse into the future for what’s to come from the two brands. Velo Cult loves this bike so much, that they’re going to work with Joseph to develop a 26+ and a 27.5 dirt tourer production version. It’ll have many of the same features, but be a bit simplified to bring the pricepoint down.
When a bike like this happens to be your size, you take it for a long ride around the block to photograph it… As stated, this particular model (which fits like a 58cm) is for sale at Velo Cult and a new production version is on the way. Holler at the guys if you’re interested in purchasing either.
