I’ve got a bunch of scraps from various film backs that I’ll be posting periodically, starting with these two of Woody, the National Track Champ, Olympic mechanic and co-owner of Golden Saddle Cyclery. Check out one more below.
Yummy! This morning, while trying to knock back a few cold ones (that’s code for emails), I popped onto Facebook to see these three belt-drive beauties staring me down. I like Steel and I like cross bikes. Ritte’s ok too, I guess. Kidding aside, head to the Ritte FB to catch the entire set.
If you like clean, simple builds and you want a frame made in the USA by Waterford, check out the Orange One frames by Milwaukee. This recent customer build up came out super clean. See more at the Ben’s Cycle Blog. Who else is making affordable production singlespeed, track and road frames in the States anymore?
Michael Sieben and Taj Mihelich have been friends since the early days of T-1. So it only made sense that when their respective companies, Roger Skateboards and Fairdale blossomed, they should do a collaboration. Skateboarding is a great way to get around but by the time you get to the spot or the park, you’re already toast, especially in the Summer heat. So these two businessmen thought, hey, why not make a bike that embodies both of our brands and add some pizzazz to it?
The Fairdale Parser Roger Skateboards edition is just that. A simple commuter, stripped down to the basics and with a little extra bounce for the buck. This limited run of 50 will come in Fairdale sizing of 10 small completes, 30 medium, and 10 large. They’ll be built, as shown, minus the hand brake (production model will have a coaster brake), will feature the new Fairdale Archer Bars, a complete Roger skateboard and the new Fairdale Cargo Skaterack.
This is their final sample, done in-house with spraypaint, so expect a much nicer production paint. Retail is $800 and they can be ordered through Full Factory Distribution via your LBS, late May 2012.
