I realize it’s been a little bit since our last update so I thought I’d put some random stuff out there.   In this post I’ll share some pictures of custom Ee brakes including root beer colored, an update on the light bike, which includes  a new sub 100 gram rear hub from Dash, as well as some skewers from Tune.  We’ve got an update on one of the 29er projects which is a change in frames as well as the arrival of some 29″ tubular tires from Dugast.

*** The Final Update on The Worlds Lightest Bike is Posted.

Back again for more interbike updates.  As mentioned earlier, we were fixed on 2.5 projects but now it’s expanded to the usual 4+.  So for right now we’ll look at the newest project which was tossed at me and I just couldn’t turn it away.  I’m sure many or most of you have seen Gunter Mai’s world record bicycle at 6.55 pounds.  We loved that bike, and only had a few complaints about it.  Now it’s found it’s way here, at least part of it has and we’ve been given the chance to make some changes.  The new owner of the bike, Jack has sent it our way and we’ll work together to see if we can improve on it(in our opinion.)  If you want to see the previous complete version of the bike you can find it here: Read more

Interbike Custom Bicycles Update III

stays for QC

Interbike is in 3 months.  Luckily we are starting to make some better progress than we have for the first 9 months of these projects.  Progress has been moving.  A road frame has been completed and is on it’s way to the artist.  Once again Artist Geoff McFetridge will design and paint one of our projects.  I can’t thank Geoff enough for this as his work is truly amazing and adds a whole new world to the bikes.   Take a look at the Ruegamer that he did for us last year.   This year he is not only doing the design for us, but will be painting it personally to really keep the special artisan look and feel.   Read more

*** The Final Update on The Worlds Lightest Bike is Posted.

Having not fit everything into the first IB update, it’s already time to bring out part two.  Here is where you can find the  first Interbike projects update.  We’ve continued to pull some parts in different colors that are likely to adorn the P29.  Starting with a few saddles, I missed putting the white Kom Vor into the picture but it is also amongst the options.

It seems that all of my posts lately seem to mention Interbike.  I guess it’s closing in quicker than I realize and that means that much of my time is spent getting things done for that.  This year we thought we’d take a more open approach to things and post regular progress reports on everything we are involved in for interbike.  So consider this the first update.  These continuous threads will be a delicate balance for me.
