    Brompton Photo Shoot

    It was early spring that we received our first shipment of 2008 Bromptons and we took them to our warehouse for some photo shooting. Very nice bikes indeed!

    The 2008 Brommies are looking fantastic. Very nice paint jobs with sleek, good looking decals and a mix of very special folding features. This is the quickest AND the smallest folding bike on the market. It would be hard to check it out and not be completely wowed.

    Our photo shoots are fast and furious, but we do out best to get nice shots of the actual models that we are selling. While there are many, many options from Brompton, we have very carefully selected models to sell. The choices we made are a nice balance of good quality options mixed with an eye towards getting a great value out of your money.

    You can check out out Brompton Bikes HERE.

    Bacchetta Corsa for 200 Mile Ride

    I did my first double century at the end of last season. This is the Bacchetta Corsa that I used for the ride. I felt that this was a perfect bike for the ride and the set up I had felt just right.

    I used a wide range rear cluster (11-32) mixed with a road crankset. This is a good mix of gears for my style of riding. The wheels are 26" with Schwalbe 26 x 1.35 Kojak tires. These tires are nice and durable with a supple sidewall. This makes for a speedy touring style tire. Perfect!

    200 miles is a long day and a true test of mental and physical strength. That said, we had a blast and doing the ride on this Corsa was perfect!

    Under the seat is a camera bag that allowed me to pull out and take pictures while riding.

    Bacchetta Giro 20 TT: Going Out the Door!

    I caught this bike before it went out the door with it's new owner. I thought it would be nice to show a few pictures of this bike as it's set up. Sweet ride, eh?

    The Bacchetta Giro 20 TT is Bacchetta's newest model. A 26.5 pound recumbent with a high quality component package including Avid disc brakes... Nice Going! The Giro 20 TT is Bacchetta's 2nd model (Corsa was the first) using an aluminum frame and the frame is making this bike very special indeed. Keeping the weight down and the performance up. It's difficult to categorize this bike as it can be set up and used in a very wide variety of ways. I'd be just as comfortable selling this bike to a daily commuter as I would to a weekend century rider.

    This customer is set up for a nice mix of commuting and weekend day rides. The bike has an Evo Lite Mirror and Sigma 1106 cyclometer on the handlebars. The bike is also set up using a RANS HT rear rack that is shown with the customer's Arkel Commuter pannier (which has a built in laptop sleeve). To mount the HT Rack we used a Disco Rack Spacer to clear the disc brake.

    Ride Away... Fast!

    Tubus Rack Extenders for Surly Karate Monkey

    Chris with their Karate Monkey

    The Surly Karate Monkey is a well known machine in the world of 29ers (bikes with extra large 29" wheels). The horizontal dropouts are great for single speed, fixie or internal gear set ups, yet a derailleur hanger on the dropout makes it easy to add gears.

    Chris digs his Karate Monkey a lot and came in ready to add a sweet rack and get some nice panniers for hauling a bit of his world around with him on his bike. The Tubus Logo was his rear rack of choice, but it looked like it would barely clear his rear tire (too low!) and being that he has a pair of bigger tires at home (to say nothing of fitting fenders to the bike) this tight clearance cannot be ignored.

    Lucky for him he is well versed in a software program called Solidworks. He created a drawing of the hardware he needed to extend the height of the Logo Rack and then sent his drawing (as a digital file) to a machinist that made the hardware (and even anodized them blue to match his bike).

    The disc brake side (pictured above) is using a 17mm Disco Rack Spacer (a Perennial Cycle custom product) as a way to clear the disc brake.

    Very Nice work Chris!
