Zlog‘s second installment of the Sea Town Fix Up comes in strong with riding from Jackson Bradshaw, Nelson Bell, Kareem Shehab, Zach Hoffner and Chris Clappé.
Zlog‘s last Future Tense looked like a ton of fun. Tyler’s going off!
Ryan from Go Means Go has been working hard on the forthcoming Pedalers’ Fair in Seattle:
“Go Means Go is working with Swift Industries and Babecycle on this project in order to shine some light on the talented makers and artisans that live and work in Washington State. We focused on soft goods for the most part, with 20 vendors attending. A broad range of goods including custom wool bespoke cycling clothing, leather goods for cycling, caps, bags, panniers and even furniture, we’ve also invited a few custom framebuilders. ”
Before everyone freaks out, there is a difference between surface rust and deep pitting. Sure, over time, surface rust leads to pitting and structural failure but a little steel wool, some furniture polish or wax to seal it and you’re good as new. Patina is the best paint job nature can provide with you, as long as you do it right. This Sizemore is a perfect example. Matt’s training bike has seen some miles and it shows.

I was talking to a few people at NAHBS this year about how Seattle doesn’t have many builders, especially when compared to Portland, its arch enemy. There’s what? Davidson and that’s about it? Then I saw this beast. Todd Hunt Bertram builds custom bicycles under the name Viana Cycles. His shop is based in Seattle and this particular frame utilizes a rather unique wishbone seat stay bridge. What else would you call it? Take note of that downtube diameter, the sleeved and cleaved seat tube and the bright-ass color. The list just goes on. Check out more at Jake’s Flickr!
