Normally I don’t care too much about how much my bike(s) weigh. My first priority is durability and reliability, but my goal with the new Salsa is to get it 10 pounds lighter than my Inglis, still using the same Rohloff drivetrain.

Aaron G, friend and Himalaya companion, recently built up a Surly Troll for our trip next month to India. Here’s his review! UPDATE! Long Term Review can be seen HERE.

I finally finished and delivered my dad’s new bike! He came by with my Grandpa on Saturday to pick it up, and I think it’s safe to say that he likes the bike. These are the kinds of projects I enjoy doing, where somebody basically says “Build me the touring bike of your dreams!” As [...]
So the other day we were visited by a quite influential person in the cycling world, and he brought in a bike that looked very familiar. You can read more about this bike here.The Bike has a Bilenky Mixte frame, and absolutely no expense was spared to make this an absolute one off with every [...]
Yesterday I went out to Albany (just north of Berkeley) to see Neil from Cycle Monkey. I had a damaged tool interface on my Rohloff Speedhub and needed to have it replaced. Cycle Monkey is the sole service center for Rohloff hubs in North America. Neil had my hub apart in no time, and I [...]
