There’s an old adage: “The traveler with the most experience carries the least.” This can be applied to everything from car camping, to bike touring, and backpacking. Matt learned this along the way, resulting in his current Elephant NFE setup. Let’s check it out below!
Today we’re bringing you a great feature from Mike from Big Wheel Building who recently took delivery of a Meriwether Cycles 60mm rear travel soft tail 29er, dubbed the Miser. This is a very unique bike and we’ve got a wonderful piece from Mike, so let’s get to it!
Today’s Readers’ Rides is spurred by a request John made in our Super Something Ti seatpost and stem post earlier this week. Remi built up a Sklar Super Something as a commuter and it came out… well, you’re going to have to look for yourself!
When someone says “hybrid bike,” chances are, old department store ATBs and comfort bikes with super high-rise stems come to mind. Yet, as Matt from St. Paul, Minnesota, shares with us in this edition of Readers’ Rides, they can be a lot more! Let’s check out his beautiful 1996 Trek Multitrack below…
This week’s Readers’ Rides comes from Ben, aka Bushtrucker here on the site, from down in Australia. He shared with us his custom Larkin Cycles “Nightmare,” the opposite of his Larkin/Crust “Dreamer” tourer. Let’s check out the bike and build kit below!
650b Conversions are a great way to swap out those skinny race tires on bigger 700c wheels for some extra supple cushioning. They are very popular in the randonneuring crowd and today, we’re featuring Mark‘s exceptional example, so let’s get to it!
This week’s Readers’ Rides comes from Las Cruces, NM and features a bike from Silver City, NM’s own Moné Bikes. Let’s check out RM’s Moné El Continente below!
This week’s Readers’ Rides comes from our friends at Two Bikes in Knoxville, Tennessee! It belongs to a customer named Pharris and we were stoked to see it roll through out inbox. Let’s check it out below!
We love to see people re-using vintage bikes for modern exploits. It’s one of our absolute favorites. So when Harrison sent this into our Readers’ Rides inbox, we spent a good amount of time frothing over it. Let’s take a look!
We first met Guy Stone at the 2021 Philly Bike Expo where he was showing a personal New Trix singlespeed hardtail from his then-nascent custom framebuilding operation Relstone Cycles. Guy is a full-time accountant and part-time fabricator with an out-of-the-box approach to building bicycles. As a side project to his side project, he builds one bike per year for a veteran in collaboration with his local VA in Chillicothe, OH, and a list of generous brand sponsors. For this week’s reader’s ride, Guy shares his most recent Project VA build: a custom Rollin Stone road bike with a great backstory. Let’s check it out below!
Is there a frameset with a bigger cult following than the Cannondale CAAD? Hoj Art says no and we agree. For this week’s Readers’ Rides, we get a look at an amazing DIY project that turned a bummer CAAD4 into a stunner track-inspired CAAD4. Let’s get to it…
This week’s Readers Rides comes from Fergus at Ritchey Designs and features his track racing frame. We love seeing the bikes from people within the bike industry and this one is not to be missed! Let’s check it out below.
Fixed gears and single speeds make for great commuter bikes. They’re simple, comfortable, help perfect your spin, and are less prone to leave you stranded with a mechanical. Pieter from the Netherlands sent in his Omnium CXC V3 with some special details for this week’s Readers’ Rides, so let’s check it out!
I ain’t afraid of no ghosts! Jeff sent in a Ghostbusters-themed Surly Ghost Grappler for this week’s Readers’ Rides and we can’t wait to show you all the details. Let’s get to it!
Using the name “Evergreen” on a titanium chassis gravel bike is very fitting. As Seven knows, ti bikes are immortal, and throughout one’s ownership of one, often go through many build iterations. Dan sent in his Seven Evergreen, which has taken him all over and has been built with various build kits. Let’s check it out in detail below!
When Michael saw Lucas’ submission a few weeks back, he decided it was time to send us his recently-completed project: a 1990 Kuwahara Tiger restomod. This project was very involved, so let’s check out the bike in detail below!
We’re probably beating a dead horse over here by promoting the restoration of vintage mountain bikes into resto mod beauts. Even a run of the mill frame can become something extraordinary, with the right amount of time, parts, and money. Today, Lucas from Tune Germany shares just that, an überlight resto mod of a 1995 Rockrider 520 that weighs a scant 9,7KG with pedals! Let’s check it out below!
