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

Hey! Long time no see right?! ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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 […]

An update on Olivia’s Trek Singletrack 990 Tourerโ€ฆ

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 […]

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, […]

Scattante Ti Cross Gets Wheels + More Partsโ€ฆ

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 […]

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ it’s going to take a bit to learn all of the functions (as I just got the […]

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, […]

updates to the Trek 930 SHX

mixte became a Kogswell P/R…

sooo, that whole Soma Buena Vista mixte thing? um… yeah… just kinda shifted ๐Ÿ˜‰ it became a much cooler Kogswell P/R (Porteur/Randonneur), thankfully all of the parts (excluding brakes) were a straight swap. right now it’s kitted out as such (front to back): Minoura King Carrier Front Basket/Rack Large, 2x Schmidt E6 dynamo headlights, Velo […]

got myself a ’92 Trek 750 Multitrack…

(not my pictures, they were provided for the sale, frameset should be shipping tomorrow) so i finally found the Multitrack that i wanted, a very pristine, at least by description and pictures (never can be absolutely certain until you see it in real life, but the guy seems legitimate, so i’m honestly not too concerned, […]

deciding to sell the Bianchi Volpe…

decisions, decisions, i hate to do it, but i’ve got the itch for a different touring frame and that means i need to sell the Bianchi Volpe frame + fork. the fork on the bike now is a powder-coated to match Surly Cross Check fork, it will come with the headset, stock fork, and custom […]

planning out the pre-war Schwinn…

as you all may know i have a ’38 Schwinn straight bar that i am starting to modify and make into my town bike. so far the conversion has been very slow going, as i always seem to have another project that manages to creep in front of the poor old Schwinn. but now as […]

Bianchi Volpe back from powder coating…

so, just got the Volpe back from the powder coaters, colors more olive than i thought, but i still like it. got bored and cleaned up the headset and bottom bracket faces to install the two parts i had sitting around ๐Ÿ˜‰ more as it get it, -peter

addiction… 80’s Bianchi Volpe…

so… yeah… got another bike, haha. this time it’s a lugged late 80’s Bianchi Volpe CX/Touring bike that will be turned into my full-out tourer. as far a kit, this is what i’m thinking… (components back to front) SRAM Rival Medium rear derailleur Shimano 105 Blackร‚ย 5703 Triple front Derailleur crankset is undetermined yet, preferably a […]

the Univega’s new path…

so after a lot of thought on the Univega it was decided that i simply had to do something with the frameset, as i got it for far too cheap just to sell it. but what to do with it? well… since the original plan was to build a bike that could do more than […]

the ’38 schwinns progression…

(a photoshop job using one 650b wheel, sorry joseph ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) so i’ve been bouncing from idea to idea about what i want to do with my ’38 Schwinn Straightbar 26″ guys bike, and i think i’ve finally settled on one. it’s going to end up something fairly close to what it originally was, an […]
