When Jeremy Dunn called me and said Rapha was planning to hold a Gentlemen’s Race in Boulder, I was, plainly, stoked. I’ve always followed the coverage of the other races and hoped we’d have the chance to share our characters and terrain here in Boulder with everyone, too.

And… Here we go!

Colorado Road Trippin’ – Jeff Frane

Colorado Road Trippin’
Words and photos by Jeff Frane

Hello, it’s me Jeffrey Gene Frane of Bike Jerks and All-City. This is the first time John’s let me infiltrate the Radavist with my ramblings and photos, although he insisted that I let him edit the photos, something about dropping out the cyan or some such. It stung at first, but I can see how my iPhoto skillz may not be up to par for such a fine site as this…

Colorado Framebuilders’ BBQ

Colorado Framebuilders’ BBQ

This looks like a RAD time in Colorado:

“Colorado is home to some of the finest handmade bicycles in the country, if not the world. This site is a showcase for not only these well crafted machines, but also the craftsmen that build them.

You will also find the latest news of our annual show, the Colorado Framebuilders’ BBQ, where you can come see these beautiful bikes and enjoy some delicious food and beer while chatting to the builders. This year’s BBQ will be held on September 27th, 2014.”

I’m thinking road trip? See more at the Colorado Framebuilders’ BBQ.

In Roads: Handmade Bikes in Denver and Boulder

I’m still on kind of a Denver high and no, I’m not talking about the altitude. I really fell in love with that city and believe me, that’s a big deal considering it was under snow most of the time I was there. In Roads is the aforementioned documentary on handmade bikes in Denver and Boulder. Featuring Salvagetti Bicycle Workshop and Mosiac, with music by Trout Steak Revival. Great work Tyler!

Now I need to make it back when it’s warm!

The 2013 NAHBS Framebuilder Party

Here’s the official NAHBS Framebuilder Party flier for this year’s event. Like I said, there are a bunch of parties happening Saturday but this one’s for the exhibitors, VIPs and media, at the Colorado Convention Center.

Another related note is the radness that’s been going on in the Velocipede Salon’s Thursday Night Lights thread. Definitely check that out. I wish I had more free time to poke around that forum more often…

I love that frame builders, like Mosaic are taking the initiative to tell their story through narratives like this. Sure, it’s marketing but kudos to encouraging people to get out and ride. I’d love to see something similar unfold from a number of other builders too.
