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

Hey! Long time no see right?! πŸ˜‰ 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 […]

New Frameset, 2014 Custom Eriksen Titanium Road…

Isn’t this the way of it? I try to sell one bike, the last blue Strong. Going to save the money I say, going to put it away for later I say, I’m done getting new bikes for awhile I say and I’m just going to wait for the custom Triton Gravel Grinder frameset I’m […]

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 πŸ˜‰ 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 […]

a new Carl Strong Foco Racing Frame…

So after a long deliberation, I came to the hard conclusion that the black Strong Custom Blend was just too big for me, so enter the new to me Strong Racing Frame made out of triple butted Columbus Foco main tubes. I’ve gone a different path with this one, originally I was just going to […]

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 […]

Sim Works Caroline stem for the Strong…

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 πŸ˜‰ 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 πŸ˜‰ 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 […]

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 […]

Olivia’s Touring Bike, 1991 Trek Singletrack 990…

so this is one of my latest “un-published” projects, well, the only one, haha, this one being for my girlfriend Olivia. all of these shots were done on my new Sony A7R, so cut me some slack πŸ˜‰ it’s going to take a bit to learn all of the functions (as I just got the […]

Spooky Darkside XC + Revelate Bags…

just a short quick update, basically, the Spooky has some baggage πŸ˜‰ ouch. low and behold this year for my birthday my family actually got me a bike part! this is a fairly new experience for me, so please let me revel in it. anyhow, the Spooky now has a medium Revelate Tangle Frame Bag […]

update on the Spooky Darkside XC…

and here’s one just for fun to show off the carbon fork, such a cool look! so just a bit of an update on the ’10 Spooky Darkside XC that i’m turning into a fast 650b commuter bike. swapped out the bars for a set of FSA SLK carbon compact bars, i love the shape […]

another new bike, 2010 Spooky Darkside XC…

so here goes, i have to cross a bridge to get to one of my jobs, this bridge is tolled, excessively. so i decided, why aren’t i riding my bike across the bridge? but which bike? the Gunnar’s paint is “sensitive”, the 750 is too clean to abuse every day like that, the 950 just […]

finally! a Trek 750 Multitrack update…

so finally! haha, well, it’s still being built, i promise! πŸ˜‰ so what’s new? probably a lot, the Farfarer Touring front mini rack hasn’t been installed on a photo up on the blog so far, the crankset, the lack of a front derailleur (see crankset haha). the brakes are back on, i had removed them […]

Ciamillo + Soul Kozak, Klein Quantum Race…

well, it’s been awhile, but i’m still working hard to get all my projects done, and the Klein Quantum Race is definitely up at the top of my list. a few changes have occurred, the Mango Chris King headset got swapped out for the black King headset that i had on the Gunnar, which is […]

Scapin Road Bike…

(better pics sometime after the rain lets up haha) I haven’t written much about this bike yet, I’m not sure why that is, maybe it’s because I’m uncertain about a number of facts. Namely the year it was built and the model designation. Scapin is a small Italian firm that still hand builds gorgeous bikes, […]

Klein Quantum Race…

so, what’s the old adage? two in the shed isn’t worth one on the road? πŸ˜‰ yeah, well… i’ve got another in the shed haha the latest bike to grace my over encumbered bike racks is an early 2000’s (2000 i think due to the paint, Silver Cloud) Klein Quantum Race. The bike is a […]

an updated Gunnar Sport…

so i felt that the Gunnar Sport was falling a bit behind on component quality so i decided to boost it’s confidence a little πŸ˜‰ new on the bike are the Paul Components Racer M brakes, the Paul Funky Monkey hangers (1″ up front and 30mm in rear). i also decided to swap saddles with […]

more soon, i promise…

updates coming soon, ish, have three sets of wheels to build, one for a the Kogswell, two for projects that are not mine, and three bikes that are under the scalpel. overkill? maybe, but i’m in bike nirvana πŸ˜‰ -peter
