Ty from Golden Saddle Cyclery loves cross. He lives for it. All year he trains and diets strictly for the radness. He even turned vegan to eat healthier. I don’t understand all that but his new Hufnagel cross bike looks like serious business. After Ty rode the 2012 NW Rapha Gentlemen’s Race, I took his bike for some lens love. I didn’t want to bring it back after pedaling over to a spot in the woods for photos…

The other day I met up with Jordan Hufnagel of Hufnagel Cycles. He’s in the throughs of building his run of porteur bikes so while he sanded stems, I snooped around his shop. More to come once my film gets processed.
Man, I am so into this build it’s making me salivate. The paint, the tires, the bar wrap, everything scream success. Jesse’s a rad dude. One of the leaves on the tree of great cyclists in LA and this Hufnagel cross isn’t going on a wall like some piece of art, it’s hitting the frontage and fire roads of Los Angeles county. There are so many details on this bike but I don’t want to steal the thunder from Jesse’s Flickr. Head over and check them out for yourself.
Head over to the new Deus Venice blog for some great photos of Jordan Hufnagel and his Porteur project. These bikes really are perfection and the Deus photos ain’t too shabby either!
I just saw Mr. Hufnagel here in Austin yesterday and we talked about his Porteur City Bike Project rather extensively. As far as a personal branding machine is concerned, Hufnagel Cycles has delivered the total package with this roll-out. Everything is dialed and his price is more than reasonable for the complete bike. Hats off to your Jordan, these bikes are great.
