Kawasaki green kinda grows on you over time, but for some reason, I doubt anyone would object to having one of the new Speedvagen Road Machines in their stable. Check out more madness at the Speedvagen Flickr, you’ll be green with… ok nevermind. Just go look at the rad photos.
Also, for anyone that’s interested, Speedvagen is selling off a few 2013 team cross bikes. Head over to the Speedbloggen for details.
Now that cross is over, does that mean everyone will be thinking about road bikes again? Here’s something to motivate you for some base miles: this Gaulzetti emerald road bike. Complete with Richard Sachs dropouts. Yikes! See more at Gaulzetti.
I like this idea a whole lot! One of the most original frame builders of all time will be at the Brooks B1866 shop in Seven Dials, London next week. The saddle manufacturer is opening their doors to Dario Pegoretti to fit potential customers for a bike and to celebrate his new collaboration Brooks Cambium Saddle. Sounds pretty rad right? I wish I could be there to see this!
Check out the press-release below with all the juicy details and more photos of this wild bike!

For a frame builder, being able to create something unique for one of your friends has got to be one of the best experiences of the job. Ben wanted a cross-ready, dirt road eating machine with provisions for a rear rack. Highlights include the seat tube cluster, custom stem and a battleship grey paint job. Royal H really killed it on this one! See more at the Royal H Flickr.
I don’t know why, but I love seeing how different builders tackle these beasts. 44 Bikes even went so far as to shoot photos of their newest creation with both 26″ full fat and 29+ half fat wheels. Personally, I love the reinforcement at the seat stays.
Check out more photos at the 44 Bikes Flickr!
This has got to be one of the sickest Hunter cross bikes I’ve seen. Big, fat, tapered head tube, elegantly-sleeved seat tube cluster, slender seat stays, deep chain stays and that incredible paint. I even kinda like the disc brakes on this one!
Head over to Blue Lug’s Flickr to see more. Seriously, I’m so into this!
As the story goes, Vanilla is left with this 49cm road frameset to sell. Now, I know a Vanilla is out of most people’s price range, but I can’t get over how nicely detailed they all are. The best part about bicycle photography is that there’s no charge to look!
Head over to Vanilla to see more details.

The Brentwood is by no means a new offering from Geekhouse, well, not officially yet. Last year, they debuted this new porteur bike at NAHBS and soon enough, with the launch of their new site, the Brentwood will have its own page in the Geekhouse catalog.
For now, head over to see more photos of this clean and tidy bike at the Geekhouse blog!
Remember that Caletti Cycles road bike that Easton is raffling off? Well, here’s a look inside Caletti Cycles. I just want to add that I really love this Dream Bike giveaway. Kudos to Easton for supporting their local frame builders!
Is it spring yet? Got your touring rig figured out? No matter how I feel about my rig, or the other offerings on the market, it’s always refreshing to see something as classic an classy as the Breadwinner Cycles Aufderheide tourer. Head over to Breadwinner for specs and their Flickr for some more photos.
