cat's outta the bag/first look at my show bikes
well. decided to snap some pics before i boxed up the bikes to go to the handmade bike show in portland, oregon. it's only a few weeks away, so i figured what's the harm! the flower bike is denise's 650B/27.5" single speed mountainbike/commuter. as well as running 650b 2.35" knobbies it will also run 700c road wheels or cross tires if you slide the pads up the paul bmx motolite brakes. it also has paul levers, a king headset, phil hubs and bb with a flip-flop in the back, white industries freewheels and cranks, thomson post and stem, a ladie's brooks b-17, hope levers and velocity rims. the paragon sliders also alow the use of a derailleur, discs, or a rohloff hub. the paint job is all powdercoat including the logos and her name. sweet. second is gillis's bike. a 29er race bike, all xtr with a fox fork, 29er crossmax wheels and select goodies......whatcha think? i'll post detail pics later. see you all in portland, steve.
