Dirty Kanza covered by the New York Times! and (gasp!) they feature a woman rider!
beautiful short film capturing the Tour of Rwanda (set to Fela!).

soma is beating everyone to a great idea and putting together an affordable low-trail 650b steel frame with wide clearances. it’s a “randonneur” bike, but really it’s the original monstercross bike: wide tires (but not too wide), great for road or non-technical off-road, and can carry your stuff (but not too much). chapeau!
Mason and I christen Gabe’s track frame with integrated bottle opener outside of The Gear Factory in Syracuse, NY where my shop is located.
bikes & beer, a classic pairing.
Neil is the second person I’ve built a frame for. He’s test riding his frameset now to determine stem length and position for the fillet brazed stem I’ll make.
Pictured on his Bianchi Volpe outside The Gear Factory at my open house. This was when his frame was still just tubes in a box.
