In this day and age do I need a beautiful gold pocket watch? Of course not. Would I love to own one? Of course I would. A classic pocket watch isn’t practical, it needs constant winding, needs to be kept dry, doesn’t update the time automatically from the nearest cel tower or satellite. Doesn’t have an alarm, a light or tell you the time in Melbourne. Do I wish I had one instead of cel phone? Absolutely. (more…)
It doesn’t really matter how it happens, it just does. The side of my brain that urges “don’t take on that project, it will be a huge black hole of time, energy and money” loses out the side of me which drunkenly proclaims “hmm. Sounds very difficult. Let’s give it a go”. Or, as we red-neck, hill-billy mountain bikers are often heard to muse with a halfway grin, “Hold my beer and watch this.”
Andrew and Sarah’s bikes are made for travel and daily adventures. Both are titanium and plumbed for Ultegra Di2. Lots of stopping power with Avid Mechanical disc brakes, rack and fender ready and packs down into an airline standard suitcase for ease of travel.
A sweet bike weighing in at under 16 lbs. This Titanium road frame was plumbed for internal Dura-Ace di2 including the external battery and external charging. ENVE fork and stem were painted to match the frame. Some other components include Chris King, FSA, Vittoria and Dura-Ace 9000 along with the Dura-Ace di2.
EeeeeeeEEEe! Sam has made me a mountain bike!! AaaaaAAAAh! Seconds after it was done, I took it out for a ride on the trails behind the shop. Hot damn but this bike handles like a dream and I’m a big geek flayler on a mtb. I promise to ride it lots and lots! Thankyou Sammy! I love you (and not just cause you built me a bike). The little fish on there is in reference to a local Quadra Island trail that I need to session over and over. And the lovely sentiments by Sam signifies a love and respect that has been going strong since our last year of highschool. Love you Sammy xoxo
