Sour Bike is on a roll this year with a lot coming up next year! To close the year out, the brand has a small rolling stock of frames at its facilities in Dresden that are ready to ship. Sour builds everything in-house, so sometimes there’s a wait time for us to weld and powder coat everything, but these frames are done, powder coated, and ready to go out the front door and under yer butt for 2024!
All the frames carry the same warranty as usual, and are mostly colors we wanted to test out, or frames used to fill out a painting schedule.
Sour can ship these globally as a frame or frameset, or your local dealer can build these up to a complete frame, including Sour’s dealer/distributor in Bend, Oregon, Chariot Bikes.
Check out the full inventory at Sour Bikes.
Rolf Prima Debutes Vigor FX and Polished Vigor Rim Brake Wheels
Rolf Prima just rolled out a limited edition run of polished silver Vigor and Vigor FX road Wheelsets. The Vigor is RP’s long-standing best-selling wheelset. With a thirty millimeter depth, paired-spoke design and fast-spinning USA made hubset made by White Industries, it rivals the weight and speed of many carbon offerings at a fraction of the cost. The polished aesthetic adds a classic touch to a cult-classic.
The FX, the single-speed/fixed version offers the same unique profile and ride quality in a simple-yet- classy one-gear variety. This limited run was inspired in collaboration with their long-time Japanese distributor, now available state-side while they last.
Get yours at www.RolfPrima.com. Both versions are rim-brake only. The Polished Vigor sells for $1,199.00 and the FX for $1,099.
COLD STEEL BABY! A classic Crust design printed on a high-quality Bayside Crew Neck. Let the people know about the commonalities between your bicycle and your refrigerator.
Made in the USA in 80%cotton and 20% Polyester.
Printed by Dog Wig Printing in New Jersey!

See our Reportage on this bike in our archives:
This listing is for one new old stock size 56cm Santa Cruz Stigmata 1 raw aluminum/clear coat finish frame that is extremely rare to find in this condition today. Because the frame condition is new old stock a combination of stock and actual photos is shown, but note THIS SALE IS FOR THE FRAME ONLY and the main photo showing the complete bike is just for reference of what it can look like built up
Meticulous bike nerd owner needs to create more space in his garage … my loss is your gain! Bike has been painstakingly serviced EVERY MONTH, even if not ridden. Chris Bishop is an award winning frame builder out of Baltimore, MD, USA. Chances are your favorite frame builder looks to Bishop for inspiration and/or mentorship. The full custom steel frame utilizes aero top tube, down tube, and seat stays. Just look at those welds … so finely done you can’t tell they are there!
Watch as Wibmer Gabriel gets wild on some drop bars!
