Details, details and details. Like that NOS XTR derailleur, or that u-lock holster on the rear rack. Or the… and the… it keeps going. Seriously, there’s only one thing that makes an exceptional bicycle like this even more phonemenal and that’s great photos. See more of this Ahearne Cycles stainless steel touring bike at the Ahearne Flickr and read up on it at the Ahearne Blog.
These Dream Bike raffles from Easton are getting better and better. The third one is my favorite, and I’ve shot photos of it before at Interbike. Seriously, Black Cat makes some of the nicest bikes…

During the Tour Down Under, Andy from FYXO is hosting the 2014 Australian Custom Bicycle Show in Adelaide. There is a slight, slight chance that I’ll be back in OZ to document the show and to soak in the TDU and “RADelaide”. Last year’s event looked great! Go see for yourself at the ACBS page on FYXO.
Call it a hip bag, call it a lumbar bag, or just man up and call it a fanny pack. Whatever you call it, they’re practical and yes, I even prefer to use one as a camera bag, as opposed to a backpack while riding. Porcelain Rocket’s new limited run for Hunter Cycles is pretty boss. I can only wonder how to order one?
What better way to celebrate Halloween than with a Spooky road? Ok, I can think of plenty of “better” ways, but I felt this bike in particular fit with All Hallows. When I was at the road crits in Melbourne the other night, looking at the sea of Giants and Treks, this Spooky jumped out at me. Matte black, raw stays, SRAM Red and that recessed cable stop detail!
See for yourself in the Gallery!
It’s the season of spooky. Or rather, black and orange. Those fall hues and tones that never really seem to fade. Independent Fabrication is celebrating Halloween with this black and orange Deluxe Redux. Tastefully done paint on a bike that rips. Not bad, huh? Totally trick’d out. See more at the Independent Fabrication blog!
It’s gotta feel great to work your ass off on a project and have it end splendidly. Or rather, begin splendidly upon completion. The guys at Signal have been in a production crunch zone for the past few weeks, preparing their new Crusade cross frames for a trip to Japan.
Something tells me this is only the beginning for the Signal Crusade…
… as a cow and I love it. Even the half-painted stem. Check out more of this insane bike at the Firefly Flickr.
The thing that attracted me to Portland’s Breadwinner Cycles was the bonding of speed and shredability. When I think of Ira Ryan, I think precision road bikes and when I think of Tony Pereira, mountain bikes come to mind. Breadwinner is a little bit of both, with offerings from the touring-minded, to the race-faced and mountain-monsters. All in a tight, tig welded package.
The JB Racer is a classic XC machine, perfect for single, double track and trails. Let’s be honest here, most of you, unless you’re downhilling or hitting Whistler every weekend, could get away with a 100mm travel hard tail. The only problem is, if you save up enough loot to put down a $500 deposit on one of these $1800 frames, will you look as steezy as Tony?
Probably not. But at least the bike will look good!
