The Bicycle Escape, in conjunction with M.O.R.E., is hosting night mountain bike rides at Gambrill State Park on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month through the end of April.
With Big Bear just days away, many of you have come to the same conclusion: 1) It is a wonderful time to break the frame you planned on racing and/or 2) it is a wonderful time to replace your old frame/bike.
Here are two fun builds we just completed. The very first Independent Fabrication to sport the damn cool HammerSchmidt two speed crank and a well set-up IF Independence.
This YiPsan 650b mountain bike turned quite a few heads. Tons of tire clearance and tons of style.
If you have not tried Ergon grips yet do your self a favor and give them a try. Love at first ride.
Yesterday, The Bicycle Escape welcomed a longtime friend and world class mechanic Adam Piece into the TBE clan. You might know him as “the guy who can bunny hop that log at Schaeffer Farms” or “the guy that tuned my suspension fork” or “the jerk that cut me off in his Nissan” but we know him as Adam.
This bright and cheery 29er was built as a demo bike and to be enjoyed by Crazy-Danielle. The 16” built bike weighs 26.69 lbs and has custom blue pin striping on the Fox F-29 fork.
We have been working on a couple of bikes over the past week and now it is time to share them with the world. The next few blog entries will be pictures of the bikes along with a blurb… that’s right folks a BLURB.
A year in the planning, the Gambrill mountain bike Graveyard Shift T’s have arrived. The super comfy and stylish shirts were produced in very limited quantities. If you would like one you must act quickly.
The Gambrill night rides commenced last night. 12 riders joined in the special kind of fun only possible on a mountain bike surrounded by cold and darkness.
A couple days ago I finished my latest project bike- Dark Chocolate. I wanted this bike to be striking to look at but with mellow styling and colors. We chose black and brown to accomplish the desired aesthetic.
As I mentioned in a previous post the single speed fever is now an outbreak. Here is a single speed Independent Fabrication Steel Deluxe that I just had to share. For you gram counters she tips the scale at 24.11 lbs. as she sets.
Recently I had the opportunity to compare two carbon 29er mountain bike forks, White Brothers Rock Solid and Origin8 Black Ops. I have not ridden either of these products for any length of time so this is not an evaluation or ride report
We recently added Q Ball and Quiring frames to the list of fun stuff that we stock. The Q Ball pictured is a USA made steel 29er mountain bike.
