    Ross bike (from a wreck to a rolling bike)

    A friend of mine told me about an old bike left to rot along a rails to trails bike path in Gregory, MI that I thought might be wroth checking out. Here is what I found out there. As you can see it was a true mess and not rideable in any way. Time for bringing it back to life and make...

    Varsity Freak MiniVelo (stick a fork in it, she's done...)

    Here is what I just messed with last night. I was tempted for a very short time to use this as my one frame change in BO9. This will be the chain ring for it... I will weld the 52t to the 30t chainring. Did some computer mock up work on it too...

    Paints (good & bad)

    So I know we all have our favorite paints that we like to use and the ones we hate. Let talk about the ones we like and give insight to others on ones they are thinking of using.

    Foot scooter

    About a month ago I pulled a scooter out of the garbage that was in need of repair. Both wheels bearings were shot so I used the front wheels off of two kids bikes. The one the axle nuts was wider than the original. So I cut the rear drop outs loose and re-welded them back on. Also used a set of...

    Wide tire on skinny rim

    So I am planning for the build off that could involve some OCC Stingray rear tires and wanted to see if I could mount them on a really narrow rim compared to what they normally go on. They were a bit of a bear to mount them on the rim, but as you can see I got them to seat. Please ignore that...
