‘An uncomfortable amount of underwear’
April 9th, 2014 - By admin
Hey are you guys sick of talking about NAHBS yet? That’s what I was afraid of. Well, I’m not.
I can’t believe 3 (4?) weeks have passed since that glorious event, but here we are. As I said earlier, we could not have been happier with the support and turnout. So much so that we have decided to continue building bikes, for at least 4 more months.
There’s plenty of coverage of the show out there, you can see our bikes at bikerumor.com , roadbikerider.com, velonews.com, and probably some more. I haven’t looked–I know what these bikes look like, I was trapped in a 10×20 booth with them for 3 days!
Just in case you haven’t seen them, here’s a few more pics from our new superphotog, Ish Abdelkhalek:
I learned a while ago that this is NOT a cross bike AT ALL. It’s a Gravel Grinder ™. Apparently, about 80% of the cross bikes I’ve been building have actually been Gravel Grinders ™ all along, what with their (1/2 degree) Radically Relaxed ™ geometry, and ChillGrind ™ (1cm longer) wheelbase. So, if you bought one from us over the past 20 years, look for your recall &rebranding notice in the mail soon.
Anyway, here’s Matt B.’s:
It’s worth noting that this is literally the dirtiest ‘Dirty Durham’ location possible. I noticed an abundance of abandoned footwear on the railroad trestle. Ish, his trained photographers eye never missing a detail remarked ‘and an uncomfortable amount of underwear’

Another Matt, Matt C. of New York, got himself a nice new Tarmac Twiddler ™:
(this location was like a surgical theater compared to the last one)
Last, for now, is Sam “just call me Matt” S.’s boogie-around-LA bike:
yes, we still make steel bikes once in a blue moon (not pictured: blue moon)
There are a few more pics up at our flickr page

And we have a very tiny presence on Twitter, but what a presence it is!
One last thing…the green logo T shirts we had at NAHBS but sold out, ARE BACK! Check em out here.
Thanks for making it this far! Go ride your bike!
