I’ve always loved the Cinelli Pinocchio stem. Nice shot Brenton!
This goes without saying but Chris King appreciates made in the USA products and in Portland, they’ve got a few like-minded companies to look to. A few miles outside of Portland lies the Benchmade facilities. Now, if you know knives, you know Benchmade and if you really want to get to know the brand better, head over to Chris King for an inside look at just how like-minded Benchmade is…
I’m so stoked for the guys at Breadwinner!
“Work Hard. Ride Home.
Breadwinner Cycles makes beautiful high-quality bicycles for people who love to ride every day. Tony Pereira and Ira Ryan, who have a combined 15 years of framebuilding experience, have come together as Breadwinner Cycles. Melding their two complementary styles results in bicycles with a winning combination of form and function, delivered in eight weeks or less. The Breadwinner lineup of six custom steel TIG-welded bicycles are equipped with the best U.S.-made parts available and built in Portland, Oregon.”
Portland’s 21st Ave Bikes can’t promise you love at first sight, but you could always try one on for size.
With all the benefit rides that happen year after year, what’s stopping people from doing their own? Save yourself from the swarm of people you don’t know, call a friend, plan a ride and hit up some sponsors. That’s exactly what Michael Tabtabai and Andrew Hudon did.
Leave It On The Road ride starts Monday, June 17 and goes 3465 miles in 24 days from Oregon to Massachusetts. Along the way and through fundraising, Michael and Andrew are hoping to raise $52k for the Colon Cancer Alliance. All the background info can be found at Leave it on the Road.
