  • The Lovely D.E.B. : Studio Hotness

    First a huge thank you to Richard Sachs for giving me the nod to build his wife, The Lovely Deb, a custom bicycle built for all seasons and conditions. It was truly an honor and a joy to work with him on this project. I’ve been meaning to get a new backdrop to take more …

  • The Lovely Deb’s 44 Huntsman

    I finished up the build for Deb earlier this weekend. Had a lot of fun putting this one together and it was a pleasure to work with Richard Sachs on this build for his wife. More pics to follow as there is a rack/bag to match for her commuting needs. And again just as a …

  • 29+ Thoughts

    The latest build I’m working on right now is a 29+. I’ve been curious about this wheelsize as I really enjoy my fat bike. Naturally before I began the build, I needed some visual references before I started to see just where the wheelsize sat on existing bikes (even if it did not fit, I …

  • TLD Back in Black

    So The Lovely Deb’s frame came back from paint via Circle A Cycles in Providence Ri. Color scheme is gloss black, cream bands with opposing cream, black and silver stripes. Lucky No. 13.14. I’m prepping and assembling her as I type these words (tea break over here right now as I’ve had a long day …

  • I heart IGLE

    Frame builder Chris Igleheart was hit by a car while riding his bicycle in Portland. He’s ok but really needs all of our help with his medical expenses. If you can, please donate here. Every little bit helps!

  • Sun setting over 44HQ

    Looked up as the day was coming to a close and the whole outside was this pink color. Rushed outside and looked up to pink and blue everywhere. Ran back into the shop, and snapped this shot across the way. Had to share. An end to a great day in the shop. My little piece …

  • Next up: 29+

    So after those experiments with existing builds and 29+ wheels, I’ve got my drawing for my client dialed, the parts spec is finished and it’s time to “make some chips”. Here’s pretty much everything that will eventually look like a bicycle: And we’re headed into outer space with this one. Space is the place. It’s …

  • Riding and reviewing the next build in line: 29+

    Been out enjoying 2013’s edition of Fall. One of my favorite times of the year. Of course it comes and goes before you can blink your eye but I love the changing of the seasons. Not to mention that means snow is just around the corner… and fat biking abounds. In preparation of the next …

  • Singlespeed in the Works

    Next up is a singlespeed for myself and will most likely be hanging out in my booth #296 at NAHBS this year in 2014. When it’s time for an update of one of my personal rigs, I typically slot them in months ahead of time. So when it’s my own turn in the list, it’s …

  • Cam’s Huntsman all finished

    Finished up Cam’s Huntsman last week and got her out the door. Cam’s had a chance to do a shake down ride too on one of his toughest routes. You can read up about that here. Here’s a few from the final build for you to ogle at. Enjoy. Build is Sram Force 22 (That’s …
