Just a lil inspiration... on a Tuesday.
Monday is a short bike video with Mike Bentham that we shot in the summer, the idea was to make something fun, for fun. hope you guys like it.
Shimano has filed a patent that strongly suggests that it is finally developing a gearbox for both road and mountain bikes. Within the patent are details of ...
What an opportunity. I absolutely love old bikes, and they don't get much older than this girl right here. Way back in 1897 a couple guys at Hartford Bicycle Co. put together one hell of a fixed gear bicycle. (it's literally older than the free wheel.) 122 years later, i bet they'd be thrilled to know she's still around.
Edit. After closer inspection, I've found what leads me to believe this bike was built 6th of February, 1894...

Hey you guys, I've got a TRAILMATE JOYRIDER side-by-side tandem that I need to find a new home for.... they sell for well over a grand, but I'm only looking for a couple hundo. Check em out. Its a pretty cool ride to add to any collection, I just don't have the room for it.

PumpTrack! Tonight! Bring your favorite beer, your bike, and your girl!
I can't help but think of how this new AVALANCHE open bath tech reminds me of old MARZOCCHI tech... finely machined. feels like butter. Beautiful crafted in red, blue, and gold anno. Looks like a cartridge from a 888.... or even a MONSTER T... dimensions are obviously different, but it's basic structure is very similar. Speed sensitive damping, among other high tech features, should make this perform super state of the art, while feeling like the good old days all over again.
[07/25/17] CANDY MTN? This weekend? Anyone?
[05/01/17] Domenics is looking for a highly skilled mechanic... Decent pay. Great atmosphere. Bring your A-Game. Drop off a resume....
I like to build things....
I do so appreciate a good, thoughtful gratuity. My neighbor Neal, who doesn't FB, brought me a few STONE bottles I've not yet seen. Ride on my friend. Today was a good day... :)
My headset feels chunky...

[09/27/16] I've got a bunch of FOX 36mm seal kits... I need to move these. Got a FOX 36? Why not put fresh seals in that bad boy?
Now that's an ugly tap handle... I love it!
[03/13/16] By the way, I'm not permanently closed. It's just that Facebook demands an address, and I don't feel like putting my house number on Facebook. Thank you, but no thank you. Just the street City ZIP at cetera had been fine for years, then you go and do an update. Now I can't post pictures. Etc... Facebook sucks.
[12/26/15] So a lil belated HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL! I certainly hope that everyone had a great winter solstice, Christmas, Quansa, Hanukkah, Boxing Day, Festivus, etc etc. Whichever you observe, have a very HAPPY HOLIDAYS! See you all in the new year! Be kind, be safe, stay real. Love you all! :)
Easier on the eyes...
[10/19/15] R.I.P. Marzocchi.....
I'm trying to source a valve. ... an air valve for a rock shox monarch. ... my bro mounted it upside down, and the rocker link snapped it off. .... anybody have this lil thing laying around?
Another one bites the dust.
Another one bites the dust. ...
Blue collar jobs. ... washing your hands before and after the bathroom. ...
So these new Mavic wheels come with a pretty sick lil set up. For one, they have ust tubeless tires, with Mavic branding, seated and sealed up. Valves installed. Logos lined up. .... and a whole set of replacement valves, multitool tire lever thing, rotor bolts, and a bottle of sealent each..... curious to see what my guy thinks this tire. they do a front and rear specific. They feel pretty good under the thumb friction test. ...
This fork right here, kicked my ass.....
[07/24/15] Huge shout out to Fanatik Bike Co up in Bellingham WA. Those guys know how to pack a bike! Top notch service, and according to this invoice, they offer a hellofa good deal too! Nice work fellas. Keep it up. 👍
Out with the old.... In with the new.
I seem to have this knack for finding these small, obscure cracks in the strangest places... Gotta call Canfield in the morning. :-O
The number one cause of flats is underinflation... Rubber is a porouse material, and tiny little things can pass right through these tiny pores. Things like molecules of various gases. Car tires lose about 1psi per month. Bicycle tires have considerably less volume than a car tire, and up to FIVE TIMES THE PRESSURE. I suggest checking pressures every time you ride, but with kids bikes, commuters, and bikes that may get ridden by others at any time, at least once a week. On the road, go to higher end of the recommended psi printed on the side wall... And use a sealant. 6oz of sealant isn't going to slow you down as much as fixing that flat. :) enjoy the weather!
Just built a rigid single speed 29er from about 90+% spare parts. No, really... Frame, fork, rear wheel, cranks, etc... All I needed was a front wheel and a pair of mechanic brake levers. Total build cost; $32.48.... Stoked. Cromo cranks, ti post, carbon bar, ... Avid, Titec, DMR, TNT, RACE FACE, etc. :)
This guy knows how to tip!!! Yeah, that's a case ... Much thanks to the greatest custys in the world. :)
Brian is doing it wrong...
I've got a pair of black and white AZONIC CATALYST DH pants in a 38" waist. Like new. 25$...
So, this had been repaired... But dude hammers on it. So now we're looking for a frame. Med. 26" Hard tail. If anybody has anything, for sale or trade, lemme know.
How many pedal pins are you missing? Probably more on one side than the other... Hit me up!
