Stunning Fixy!

November 28th, 2008 Hugh

Andrew’s fixy is finally together. It is built with sleek oversize lugs and True Temper Platinum tubing. The yellow pinstriping on the lugs turned out really well. This frame has an EBB to take care of the chain tensioning duties. I am sure this bike will turn a few heads. Once the fit is dialed in I will have a stem painted yellow to match the other yellow bits.

Commuter Bikes

July 29th, 2008 Hugh

Here are some pictures of a couple of ‘all terrain’ commuter bikes we’ve made recently. Both of the bike feature strudy steel frames with 700C wheels and room for cross tires or commuter tires and fenders. Both bikes are built with eccentric bottom brackets and the Shimano Alfine 8 speed internally geared hub. The Alfine hub is the Nexus Inter-8 hub with a disk mount. This hubs span a useful range of gears and work beautifully.

Lean, Mean, Green Machine…

Yeah, I know it’s black, but trust me – commuter bikes are green! This custom steel commuter has a bunch of neat features. The bike is built up with Shimano’s Alfine group – an eight speed internally geared rear hub, a front dynamo hub, and disc compatible. A Titec ‘Jone’s’ H-Bar makes for a wide variety of hand positions with a performance but comfortable rider fit. A Brook’s Flyer saddle provides a touch of luxury. The Flyer saddle is the B-17 top with sprung rails – and is surprisingly comfortable on rough roads – after it is broken in. The frame is custom steel, uses an eccentric bottom bracket to tension the chain, and has clearance for 700x35C tires and fenders. Very fun, and the black-black-black colour scheme looks very sharp and neo-retro!

This is likely the last preview I’ll have a chance to post before the bike show….a bit of a teaser this time. If you want to see the rest of this bike, you’ll have to come by our booth at the show!
