Milling a good time.....

I was making some parts a while back to try something new so maybe someone can take a spin off of this quick idea and make something cool with it.

The idea is to make a freewheel attach to a 6 bolt disc hub so you can run disc wheels and even if you want to get crazy mount a rotor between them and put the disc brake caliper on the right side of the bike for a super clean look.

I built it to mount to a lefty wheel but I decided to build the gravity bike without a drivetrain.
there it is kids
304 stainless of fun

Gravity bike fork on the way

Well, I have had some of the most relaxing days I have had in a long while.

Kinda fun, peaceful and just a good time to catch up with the business side of MLS and all the fat stacks of cash that need to be counted.

Iphonin it up at the Actual Cafe in Oakland, super rad bicycle coffee shop
I think thats spelled correct?

Ok well I started hammering away again on the Gravity Speed bicycle's front end and machined up some Titanium parts last week. Check it out and see what you think?

The bars attach to the ring under the top triple tree. I think the chicks will dig it?

Coker Big One Cargo bike project

Well, a while back COKER cycles sent me a wheel to build something with to get people pumped about the 36. I toyed around with a few designs and just was having a hard time making something that struck me as a good fit for the monster wheel.

 I decided to try the 36 inch wheel with an electric hub that was sent to me for the rear of the cargo bike I am building. It will have a 26 mtb front wheel with a giant flat bed rack over the front wheel and the rear will have the 36 inch wheel with giant aluminum pannier bags to cover the largeness of the wheel.

It should look like if a Schwinn Cycletruck met a old tired Touring bike in a dirty alley, this is what the child may look like.

This will be, I hope at the handbuilt show in Feb. all done up with hot paint and fancy parts.



it might look something like this

Guess you will just have to wait and see what happens
