Updates from Russia: Triton Titanium Gravel Rig…

So I’ve been purging, because of some big news on the horizon my space will be more limited. I sadly sold off the Eriksen, and I have the Trek 750 Multitrack up for sale in it’s current form. The SV650 sold as well to a great Washington guy, I have no updates on it. But […]

the Strong Foco Road all painted up…

A big update here. So, the big reveal! Haha, or something like that. Two and half weeks ago I spent an afternoon packing the fork, stem, spacers, and frame together and I shipped it all down to Ruckus Composites in Portland, OR to have it all paint matched to the frame. Less than a week […]

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 […]

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 […]

short Spooky Darkside XC update…

i was looking outside at the light fading and it was just a pretty fall evening i had to scoop up the Spooky and carry it outside for a quick photo opp. anyhow, spooky is coming along nicely, as you can see the housings are all routed, the bars are taped up and the wheels […]

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 […]

new Easton parts for the Klein Quantum Race…

just short and sweet update on the Klein Quantum Race. basically i decided to swap the bars and seat-post for something a little more carbon, a cut down EC90 rear post and an EC70 ergo carbon bar up front. visually i’m in love with both, i think the EC90 post and the Klein go together […]

Campagnolo Record for the Klein…

just a small update with some mediocre pictures, got the majority of the groupset for the Klein Quantum Race in the mail yesterday, got a deal on it to boot. working on getting the wheels together next, though i’d also like to finish the Trek 750 Touring bike (all it needs is brakes, a SRAM […]

update, Klein Quantum Race…

hey again, so soon right? 😉 anyhow, i here is the Klein as it sits today with all of the updates mentioned in the last post. hope you enjoy, -peter

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 😉 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 […]

Kogswell P/R update…

so the kogswell is finally nearly there, only front and rear lighting to mount and wire up to that pretty Shimano LX dynamo hub out front there. the Alfine 8 rear hub was a breeze to set up, i wish i could justify the cost of the 11 speed, i’d have a triple on the […]

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 😉 -peter

dueling treks, an update on both…

got a few more parts in the mail as well as installing fenders on the 750, more pictures of that in the next week or so, as well as some changes from the Bianchi’s kit. the 950 however is all ready to ride, minus a bottle cage, Chain Keeper, rim tape, tubes, tires, and grips. […]

Trek 950 update…

parts are starting to add up, finally it’s staring to resemble a bike! waiting on an XT M770 11-34 cassette, an XTR M791 GS rear derailleur, the Chris King 1 1/8 2Nut Conversion, and the Thomson 110mm x 10? X4 stem. next on the list, building the wheelset… mmm, sexy 650b’s…. -peter

furthering the Bianchi Volpe…

small update… the frame is now in the care of R+E Cycles up in Seattle, should be about two to three weeks before i see it again.. getting the dent filled and the new cable stops brazed-on (replacing the top cable guides). can’t wait! in the meantime i’ll just have to comfort myself by purchasing […]

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 Black 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 😉 ) 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 […]
