Finally an update! Triton All-Road/Gravel Rig…

Hey! Long time no see right?! 😉 Haha, sorry, I have a house (and a new puppy + an old puppy) with my partner lady and it has utterly consumed my life! So, to the fun stuff, my first fully custom bike, the Triton All-Road / Gravel frame with a custom painted Rodeo Spork 1.2…

Another purge, Strong Foco Road For Sale…

Sadly a car is becoming more and more important as my current lease comes to an end, so I’ve decided to have a great divestment of resources 😉 As you’ve seen in previous posts the bike is a custom built Carl Strong Columbus Foco Road Racing steel frame with a paint matched ENVE 1.0 fork…

For Sale: Klein Quantum Race + Scattante Ti Cross…

Well, I’m getting out of bikes… no, I completely kidding haha, I’m just selling because I am smitten with a new Ti frameset, the Kona Rove Ti (If anyone has one for sale, please let me know, I’d prefer a 2014 56cm model, but would be ok with any 56cm Rove Ti honestly). Both Frames…

An update on Olivia’s Trek Singletrack 990 Tourer…

OK, so I know it’s been awhile since I’ve either posted or talked about bikes. Think of it as a mild hiatus, a short rest stop to catch my breathe, lots has happened in-between and I’ll update over the next couple of weeks accordingly. Right now let’s focus on what’s in front of us, Olivia’s…

a new project with a few more wheels than normal, ’86 Jeep Grand Wagoneer…

Long time no see right? Sorry about that, it’s been crazy with work, life, and this jeep project I should have posted up months ago…. Anyhow, here it is in all of it’s moldy glory! The “Waggy” had been sitting for a number of years, it has a little rust here and there, but overall…

today the mailman was kind enough to bring me the Strong’s new stem and spacers, a gorgeous fillet brazed steel Sim Works Caroline stem made by Nitto in Japan. the spacers are also made by Sim Works and match the stem great! they’re actually the nicest, thinnest steel spacers I’ve seen! the stem is an…

Carl Strong Road Racing frame coming along…

lots of fun toys coming together on the Strong road frame, namely the custom made Rychtarski Columbus MAX fork (an awesome Polish company that makes beautiful bikes for INSANELY good prices!), King Headset, the recent wheelset build, and shifters. starting with the fork, it was made to the exact dimensions of the original Strong fork,…

new project, Strong Custom Blend Steel Racing bike…

this is going to be the last project bike I get for awhile (I still have plenty unfinished ones downstairs), no seriously, it is! unless I find something really cool… it’s an addiction 😉 but back on topic, the new frameset is a slightly used (I mean there are a couple of marks, but hell,…

nearly a year later, Trek 750 Multitrack…

so after nearly a year the here’ the Trek 750 Multitrack again, yes, one more iteration 😉 I was never super keen on the wheelset I’d build previously, namely because it wasn’t really wide enough in the rear hub arena, so that had to change. the new wheelset is a combination of an SP PV-8…

the Scattante Ti Cross is almost there…

so after an order frenzy, a trip back east to Philly, and a bit of waiting the Scattante Titanium Cross frameset I bought back in beginning of March is nearly complete. whats new? well, lets see, a lot! I got a screaming deal on a Super Record rear cassette (12-27 tooth), because I wanted some…

the Klein Quantum Race, finally all buttoned up…

so basically I’ve been sitting on the Klein for some time now, being too lazy (or too busy with life and other projects) to get the steerer cut. all that’s really changed is the stem (now an EC90 carbon), stack height (a bit shorter) and the cut steerer. took it on it’s first ride of…

Scattante Ti Cross Gets Wheels + More Parts…

well, i’ve been busy working on the Scattante (Lynskey) Titanium Cross frameset I bought down in Portland earlier this month. it’s helped having the majority of the Campagnolo Chorus groupset already at my disposal (poor Gunnar, it’s already getting reborn, very, very slowly). so far I’ve got the group on there, no lines yet, just…
