Blood & Vomi
Originally uploaded by thebicycleescaWith rain behind us and the sun shining, I enjoyed a leisurely ride exploring country roads. Always aware that country roads sometime equal unleashed dogs, I kept my eyes open as I rode. As I approach a particular farm house I was on heightened alert.
Tour of Walkersville racers braving the very high winds.
This YiPsan 650b mountain bike turned quite a few heads. Tons of tire clearance and tons of style.
I am very excited to announce that Danielle and I will be attending the 2009 North American Handmade Bicycle Show in Indianapolis on February 27 – March 1. While at the event we plan on blogging more than a teenage girl who scored tickets to a Jonas Bothers concert.
This year’s swap meet was pretty fun. We were there with the ‘Wheel Game’ for the fourth consecutive year. Lots of bottle caps found good homes and it was good to catch up with people we don’t get to see very often.
Fans of the shop know that one of our favorite tasks is customizing bicycles. The most resent step toward making every bike extra special has been to stock custom color items. We noticed that it seems impossible to get a white, orange or yellow headset. Well, we put an end to that.
We just got in a very special and very custom little bike (12″ seat tube) for a woman we will call Jaja (not her real name).
The time had come and gone. We ran out of excuses and postponed it too many times. We could no longer put off waxing the damn floor.
We just received a shipment of fun stuff that lends itself to dressing up a fixed gear. Origin8 has lots of cool new parts in tons of colors.
If you have not tried Ergon grips yet do your self a favor and give them a try. Love at first ride.
Caller: Ummm, hi. I am the guy that just bought that unicycle (20 minutes ago) remember me?
Handsome Bicycle Repairman: Yeah
The other day a gentleman named Leo visited the shop. He asked a few questions about building a frame that he made many years ago. He built the frame at one of the first UBI frame brazing classes under the instruction of frame-builder-extraordinaire Albert Eisentraut.
Just yesterday we got our TBE coffee straight from the bean roaster. Preliminary sips prove this bold and balanced coffee to make you faster, more alert and more attractive.
I just built this QBall which will be part of the TBE demo collection. The size small 29er has a heart of steel with a star fade wrapper. The frame is outfitted with Shimano XT bits and pieces with a Fox fork and Hope headset
