    Fat Chance Buckshaver

    So, been a minute since I updated. Got all parts installed, still need correct front derailleur as I am using a later generation XT, and to overhaul the Rock Shox Judy SL and its Englund air cartridges. I had the Brew Jug cable hangers in my stash forever and finally installed them on a bike...

    JC Higgins Flightliner Rat-Price Drop

    Am selling my Higgins to put funds into other projects. Not original, ratted out a while back. Have it listed locally in Denver but figured I would try listing it here as well, see if anyone wants it. Hoping it doesnt get parted out, but know how it goes sometimes. Definitely a little rough...

    Nothing Special, CWC Hiawatha

    Wow, I have been such a slacker here. These past few months have been insane. I have travelled almost every weekend to some cycling event in Colorado to setup as a vendor, have ridden my mtb in many beautiful locations, raced my winter build off bike, and really enjoyed the hightop ford van I...

    Crested Butte Chainless 2017

    Will do! I think a muscle bike themed gravity bike would be really cool. And with the cruiser/klunker history CB has, it will be well received by the locals and other competitors! keep the rubber side down!

    Crested Butte Chainless 2017

    Its all good. Makes it two years in a row I flatted in the rear. May be my legacy at this race? The winner this year has been competing for 17yrs and it was his first time on the podium, so I have some time ;) Now I have a year to trip over and bump into my really heavy rig, hopefully I can find...

    Crested Butte Chainless 2017

    Had a blast yesterday. Mint Chocolate Chip did really well and got lots of compliments from others before the race start. I got off to a great start, was running third and about to overtake second when I got pinched into the gutter about halfway down and flatted. Kept running anyways! I have the...

    Got down to Gunnison, CO yesterday afternoon. Parked the van out at Hartman Rocks Recreation area to camp for the night and get some mtb riding in. I found a nice spot, which happened to be the same spot where I watched the Observed Trials competition during the Rage in the Sage bike fest back...

    Nothing Special, CWC Hiawatha

    None really to report on unfortunately, been really busy travelling around CO this month. I did have a chance to bring it into work the other day, finished cleaning up the rear fender to bare metal. Now I just need to do the front fender and finish the frame and fork. Once that is completed...

    Crested Butte Chainless 2017

    Thanks, heading down there tomorrow. About a four hour drive from Denver, should take us 5 or so in our van, its fairly slow going fully loaded. Now I have a really heavy bike to add to the mess, should be manageable. Planning on a mtb ride tomorrow with a friend, either around Gunnison or...

    So the 2017 running of the Crested Butte Chainless World Championships is a week away! I am pretty excited about the event. Will be my second year competing.

    Fat Chance Buckshaver

    Yes, I was speechless when the previous owner mentioned giving it to me. I love the color, the green fade is just killer. Stripped it down to the frame and polished it with some Pedros Bike Lust. And picked up a mint Nishiki Ariel off craigslist the other day for a decent price that had a full...

    Project Ed (DONE)

    I have had a black S/A front drum hub in my stash for a while now waiting for a build, had I only known you were looking for one! No logos on it either which I find strange. Cannot wait to see your build finished! keep the rubber side down!
