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…

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,…

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…

new bike, Scattante (Lynskey) Titanium Cross…

hey there everybody, so here goes, this is my latest bike acquisition, a Scattante Titanium Cross. just drove down to get it in Portland, OR last week to snag it up. these frames were built for a very short period by Lynskey and sold by Performance Bike under their (purchased) name of Scattante. it’s supposedly…

chainrings and a new spider for the Spooky Darkside XC…

so the funky Spooky build of mine continues, now I’ve added an S900 10s GXP 110mm spider (part number, 11.6115.547.010) and a set of 2014 Sram X Glide Compact Chainrings 46/36 11s chainrings into the mix. this took just a bit of work, mostly filing down a small part of the front derailleurs spring (SRAM…

small update on the Spooky Darkside XC, more Revelate goodness…

the sun popped out for a bit today so I decided to play a little more with the A7R, this time taking advantage of some minor updates on the Spooky Darkside XC 650b converted commuter. pretty much the only bits that have changed is the addition of the Revelate Pika seat bag and the recalled/replaced…

some more Pari-Moto Spooky pics…

so when i went out to shoot the Spooky Darkside and it’s new set of Pacenti Pari-Moto tires yesterday, well, i made the mistake of going outside with just a t-shirt on, no jacket, etc. so basically, i was freezing my ass off, haha. the light was also very much waning, i wasn’t getting the…

Pacenti Pari-Moto’s for the Spooky Darkside XC…

just a quick update on the Spooky. yesterday i got all the parts that were needed to finish up the wheelset, though i didn’t actually get the mail until today 😉 what was needed was the 20mm-QR front hub adapters and skewers, i had received the Pacenti Pari-Moto 38x650b tires and some Kenda tubes earlier…
