Belgie colors and an ode to Mod!

I stole the whole Belgium colors to finish off the bar wrap job idea a couple weeks ago for my road bike from my good buddy and fashion leader Mod Savery (thats a long sentence, technically incorrect). I liked it so much that I decided since the Moots was hurting a bit from last CX season i'd take the Belgie theme one step further and add sky blue Deda tape to the mix, little more color than the white i normally run. here's the result. Thanks MOD!

Ibis Demo day and Evening

If you've ever wondered what the new Ibis bikes ride like, stop by the shop this Tuesday evening and come along for a ride. My good friend from back in the Manitou days Kirk is the head Ibis demo guy and he'll be here with a sprinter van full of new Ibis bikes to check out. If we can ride the park we will, if we can't it might be a cross/road bike ride out to some small town, probably Davey. Call the shop for more info if you'd like to get the scoop, ask for nate. (477-4104)

classic, i wish all road races had a couple dirt sections.

6 Moots on the Tuesday Night MWC ride

Hunter CX bike

Rick built this bike for us back in october of 09, i've had it done for a while but never got around to taking some pictures of it, and truth be told still haven't, but until then, these two crummy photos from my phone will have to do. This bike rides nice, and for an all steel cx rig with 32 hole King wheels comes in at 19lbs, not to shabby, althoug it'll probably go up just a smidge in weight when the right DuraAce STI shifter geets installed. This Hunter happens to be a tig'd bike, but you can have yours anyway you'd like as long as it's tig'd or fillet-brazed.

Signal Cycles light duty 29" city bike for NAHBS 2010

My good friend Nate Meschke and his partner Matt Cardinal from Signal Cycles built this amazing bike for me around a vintage m730 XT parts kit and some WTB grease gaurd bits. They also took it to the North American Handbuilt Bikeshow two weekends ago in Richmond Virginia. Nate and I use to work together here in lincoln at the old Bike Pedalers. He then moved on to Portland with his wife Emily. Three years ago he and Matt Cardinal decided they needed to put their creative hats together and build some frames. They had asked me if i'd like to supply a parts kit for a show bike and hoped that it would be of the vintage MTB variety, and i was more than happy to help. I think that the finished product turned out pretty amazing! i can't wait to ride it, after i take of the slicks and put on some skinny 29" knobbies! Chris King himself even stopped by the booth to check out some of his old handiwork with the WTB/King headset. I definetly suggest that if you're in the market for a beautiful handbuilt lugged or fillet brazed frame, you check out and see what Nate and Matt can come up with for you! I also would like to thank Sean Chaney at vertigocycles as well for the custom Ti bar, and my good buddy Scott for polishing the salsa skewers!
