April 2014 BOM – Gibike prototype

  We saw this cool machine at Sea Otter.  It’s a Gibike – electric/human hybrid.  Designed to be an inner city commuter.  At this time it’s a prototype and the inventors are looking for some investment via Kickstarter to get into production. It’s not only a beautiful bicycle it’s also well thought out in terms […]

Bloody Shins MTB Trail System – Winnemucca, NV

Coming home from Sea Otter we stopped in Winnemucca for the night.   The next morning a quick Google search for MTB trails in central Nevada led us to the Bloody Shins area right outside town. Gotta say it was a real treat to find some great MTB specific trails out where we expected none.  It’s […]

Mount Tamalpais – San Anselmo, CA

While visiting family in San Anselmo, we had a chance to get up Mt. Tam for a quick morning ride. Marin lays claim to the birthplace of mountain biking and Mt. Tamalpais was one of the spots where it all began.  Sadly, today there are not really any trails on Mt. Tam that can be […]

Reverse Joe Dirt – Surly 1×1

Bike of the Month Photo – March ’14.   All party in the front – nothin’ but business in the back.  Built by one of our friends in Oak Creek, this Surly 1×1 has a whole new outlook on life.  Amazing what a haircut can do for your attitude…

’59(?) JC Higgins

Here’s an oldie.  I think it’s a 1959 but there’s no way to tell by the serial number.  I saw some similar ones whose owner’s said they were between ’58 and ’60.

Krampus 29+

Well here it is, the shortest day of the year.  It’s snowing.  Figured that the Krampus would be a deserving choice for December bike of the month. It’s not truly a snow bike but it does pretty well on the packed-out singletrack. These pics are from the Blair Witch and MGM trails here in Steamboat.

Some Raw Photos for the Website

We shot some photos for the website today.  Lucky to have great models and a super photographer.  Thanks Tim Murphy!  These are some roughs.  The final versions will be up on the web site when we have product in stock.  

Colorado Trail Ride

So, I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time now.  We have friends who have raced the CTR and there have been mixed reviews as to how the ride is. It’s hard.  The experience is awesome.  I was sort of expecting hundreds of miles of trail like there is around Buffalo Creek or […]
