We are still settling in to the new location in Guelph, but the bikes are rolling out agian! Here are some pictures of Jeff’s stunning hardtail 29er with a custom steel fork and a touring bike dressed up with mango Chris King hubs and headset.

Titanium Touring Bike

March 12th, 2008 David

ti_touring.jpgWe’re back from the show and trying to get some of the bikes finished off before the move to Guelph. This custom touring frame is made from titanium for the ultimate in durability and resiliency. The touring bike is built up with handbuilt XT/DT Swiss TK 7.1 wheels, Avid disc brakes and an XT drive train. The racks are Old Man Mountain Sherpas in the 700C disc compatible version. Like many of our hard-core touring bicycles, this bike rolls on Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires.

Now, Water Buffalo Tested…

Lis was just in the shop to get her bike looked over. She is back from touring Vietnam on her take apart touring bike with S&S couplings.

The bike help up to the air travel and the rigorous tour perfectly. The only major incident during the trip – being run off the road in a collision with a water buffalo!

Damage to the bike – a scratched up shifter and paint. Damage to Lis – a scraped up arm. The water buffalo came through the incident unharmed….
