    Hell yes @DETOLOVE it!!! He needs to learn tricks now.
  4. Those colors tho @Jokersoooooo pretty and vibrant!
  5. Not the best photos, but this is the road racing machine. Custom paint by Poseur Sport (no longer exist, but you can see some of their work here), wheels from HiFi, limited edition tape by Manual for Speed. I've updated the saddle to one of those Specialized Power saddles, and I've cut down the fork steerer tube so it's not sticking out above the stem... which bugged the crap out of me. I've also got a SAGE titanium PDX for cyclocross racing, and a Giant Anthem 27.5 for MTB riding and racing. I kinda want a hard tail MTB but I think if I bring home another bike my wife might freak out.

    Custom Paint Designs

    Fuckin sick... Nice work man.
  7. For the last few years I've been designing custom paint options for customers of SAGE Titanium Bicycles. Unfortunately I haven't received images of all the bikes I've done designs for but I thought I would share a few... The first is the SAGE Flow Motion hard tail MTB. The design was mostly focused on the top tube and head tube, but we carried on to the ENVE wheel logos as well. This bike was the show bike for a recent Chris King show here in Portland where Chris King invited smaller bike brands to showcase the new CK colors by building custom bikes around the hubs, BB, and headset. The second is the SAGE Belgian Beast. There's a bike race in southern California called the Belgian Waffle Ride and SAGE sends a small team every year, so we decided to do something special for the bikes that were going. This bike was also on display at Sea Otter Classic weekend. I've done a handful of others that were for customers who bought a SAGE and wanted something special, and I'm currently working on a few F1 inspired designs for next years Sea Otter Classic weekend.

    MY 10 YEAR OLD HAS BEEN ASKING PERMISSION TO RIDE HIS BIKE TO AND FROM SCHOOL FOR A WHILE NOW, AND TODAY HE GOT TO DO JUST THAT. WHEN HE GOT TO A SCHOOL HE WAS SADDENED TO SEE THAT THERE WERE NO BIKE RACKS TO LOCK UP HIS BIKE... HE’S STARTING THE 5th GRADE AND WE LIVE ABOUT A MILE AWAY FROM THE SCHOOL.

    @SukiSukiNowHooliGal Squad sounds awesome! Nicely done. Seems every year more and more women are getting into racing (at least here in Portland), and just general riding. It's nice to see in a sport that is mostly male. Personally, I think it helps keep the guys a little more reserved on bike rides. Some guys don't know how to ride a bike unless they're throwing hammers the whole time. @metronomeyeah, I did a kit with ManualforSpeed a little while back. It was a fun project. Every year they dod a short-run of kits that are designed by artists, and that year I got a random email to design one. Obviously, I jumped at the chance. Even designing some water bottles and a few other things for them. @misteravencycling kits are an easy design but there's definitely things to consider. Most custom fabricators have minimums that need to be met, but there are a few that do one-offs, too. Quality on those aren't that great, though... and I know how you are 😉 If you get to thinking it might be cool to do a small run let me know and I'll walk you through some of the fabricators I've worked with, and explain their templates and details.
  10. Thanks, the rug really ties the room together.
  11. Vassago Ti frame. Rides like a dream, still need to get a new fork to run the boosted front wheel, Also a new seat. About to take her out for a ride to albany park
  12. 1) My hard tail Giant Talon, alloy. This one gets very neglected. I should get it out to the trails a bit more but its so much easier to just ride my roadie. 2) Cannondale Synapse alloy w/ 105 groupo. Bought this bike used as I was getting into cycling. It's now relegated to my basement where it sits on an indoor trainer and I use it to Zwift because where I live we have snow for 5-6 months of the year. 3) My BMC RoadMachine 02. Full carbon frame with 3T Discus pro alloy wheels and ultegra di2 group. My wife has no idea how much I spent on this bike and I'd like to keep it that way. 4) Just for fun I'll include my work whip.
  13. You can attach directly with this system. Helps the page load faster since it’s cached differently and will insure no broken images in the future. Fresh setup man!
  14. First time posting pics on the new format, don't think we're supposed to use imgur and whatnot now so sorry if I screw it up. Pic# 1 is the workshop, Pic #2 is the workhorse, a 2013 Trek Remedy 9. A really great bike but it's in the shit at the moment as I ripped a hole in the rear tyre, a $60 Ardent that still had 75% tread on it, as I was hitting some trails on the way to work and the hole was too big for the silicon to plug. As I was trying to fix that I also noticed that a pedal that had developed play was stripping the spindle - NFI how or why but I'm now up for some new pedals as well. That's about a $200 day right there. Pic #3 is a Cannondale 1FG. You may have seen me post this under another username around 07-08. I took that bike to China with me when I lived there for a while and did more laps around Tiananmen square than I can remember on that thing. Was single speed for 8 years but at 45 my knees are getting more and more delicate by the year so it has gears now and is relegated to bike path commuting duties when I get up late and don't have time to take a detour on the trails. Pic #4 is my sentimental fav, a Cannondale Chase. Rode it as a trail bike, commuter, street bike, dirt jumping, downhill, you name it. This thing is fucking bombproof. I'm about to bring it out of retirement for pump track duties soon. Pic #5 is a DH bike I bought, rebuilt and sold without ever riding it. It was a bargain but in all reality too small for me. Didn't lose any money so easy come easy go.

    I'm Canadian so I don't know how feasible this would be but these guys do small batch for teams https://www.jakroo.com/ca/ And these guys make and distribute from Vancouver https://pillarheights.com/

    12oz cycling caps please! Would also wear the fuck out of a 12oz jersey. Joker I lurked your IG and saw you designed a kit for Castelli. That's fucking dooope!

    They have sites you can visit and design a cycling cap. Would be cool to have that circular 12 logo on the outside front and 12oz Prophet on the inside of the bill so when u flip it up u can see it.

    Currently I have an Iro and Leader fixies, Specialized Dolce, some old shifty Trek mountain bike, and a low rider bike I’m fixing up. I’ve had that Iro for about 13 years, it’s my love ❤️

    @Joker thanks for joining the group. Love hearing about you riding and participating in races. Do you ride fixed at all? That bike you designed is dope!! 2 years ago I decided to start HooligalSquad an all female bicycle club in LA. I was going to a lot of rides, always riding with guys and thought I really wish more girls would come out. As you know the cycling scene is pretty male dominated. I welcome all levels and bikes and just wanted to encourage other women to ride and not feel intimidated. Idk it kinda seems to be working. We meet as a big group about once a month and take turns planning the route. The big rides are always open to all women. The last one I lead was to a Buddhist temple, it was about a 40 mile ride. We ride, have lunch, chit chat, address issues, vent, talk about life. I ride with one or more Hooligals at least once a week. We get together and volunteer in our community. One of the Hooligals started a nonprofit feeding the homeless in Venice. Solid group of strong women for sure. So I would love it if you designed a bar tape!!! Oh and @misteraven I would totally rock a 12oz cycling jersey. I’ll look into it, or at least a cycling cap?

    Also, if anyone knows how to do that custom cycling gear, speak up. Interested in hearing more. Assume it’s all small batch stuff since it’s intended for teams? I’m stretched this with all I’m doing, but will see how I can help make that happen if possible.

    Yeah, I'm all over this. Thanks for the invite, Suki! And thanks for the heads up, Raven! Been steady training all year to be ready for the CX season, which starts in September here in Oregon. Cruddy thing is, I go on two weeks vacation right as the season gets underway. Oh well. Hopefully I can recover some fitness for the last month and a half of racing, and get a decent result or two. Been doing some local road races, mostly weekday stuff. About to wrap up an eight race short track MTB series at the end of this month. Currently sitting 4th overall for the series but the three in front of me have so many points that I don't think I can get on the podium even if I win the last two races. Happy with 4th overall as it's been a tough series, and I missed two races, so 4th overall is a nice place to be. @SukiSukiNowtell me more about your female cycling team. I saw some images on your Instagram and a few shout-outs to the group, but I don't know anything about it. Love to hear about it! This is a bike I designed the paint job for a few years back. Fun bike. Been doing a lot of custom design paint jobs for this company.
