Rides I’ve been on – on my own, with others, test-riding new bikes, trying new things

Another little movie

Here’s another clip from my video experiments. I still can’t get the sound to transfer so you’ll have to imagine (for now) the wind noise, occasional tire/trail fx and me muttering something or other at the end.

Next up might well be a rear facing camera looking at a six-speed set-up in action. For now […]

Busy – nothing to announce (yet)

Sorry, realize I haven’t blog’ed for a while but I’ve been busy. A few steel and titanium bikes have been built, prepped and shipped to customers and I’m doing a lot of new stuff too. Several plans are coming together pretty well and the future’s bright. It’s very much wait and see though – […]

Mountain Bike Oregon road trip

I drove the VW up to Oakridge for Mountian Bike Oregon in July. The riding was great! I’ll be heading back up for the second event of the summer this weekend.

I’ll bring a bike for me to ride and a couple of others. Stop by the bus and check them out.

Each day of riding […]

Boatman’s ride

Jeff has been riding his bike.

Cut from Jeff’s email with permission:
“I got out on a few multi-surface rides last week, and did some of my favorite high country singletrack trails this weekend. I’m loving the bike.
Everything is working out great. Your build is a work on art in itself. I love all the […]

2fat

The fat tire bike is finished and I’ve been riding. This bike is a lot of fun. The traction and cushioning from the big tires really makes new types of riding possible.

I have plans on a production version of this and I’m working towards that now. It will probably be available in steel or […]

Off dirt riding

I’ve been riding my bike on the road a little more this year than in the past. I’ve always ridden the road but never really got into traditional “road” bikes or road racing. I have always ridden the road to go some place or just explore.

The skinny tires and drop bars just didn’t allow […]

Bike upgrade and test ride

I just finished a few changes to this bike. It belongs to Manolo. He’s had it for a year now and wanted to get the Fat fork after trying my bike with one. His bike got the new 135mm Fat Truss fork with the carbon steerer. I also rebuilt his 29″ wheels with wider […]
