Finally!

Filed under: New products — davos @ 6:50 pm

I have recieved my first two frames back from the awesome Peter at Star Enamellers.

The blue frame was built at UBI with some lovely newvex lugs.

The orange nasty is my upright road bike – fillet brazed with a lugged bottom bracket, short top-tube and head-tube extension. This bicycle was built under the expert tutelage of john and patience of all at cycle underground down in the shire as i took about 6 months to file and grind the brass into a nice looking join.

See some more photos online via John’s Flickr .

We just built up a wicked vivente world randonneur with low gears, riser bars, ergons, bar ends and v-brakes. The vivente is an awesome bike, fully accessorised for $1750. It is a pity about the gearing for being a tad high for most people.

A more traditional fuji touring with drops, bar end shifters, v-brake compatible road brake levers and low gearing as well rode wonderfully.

Nick is on the tools fresh from barnetts and with some more experience should come along nicely.

John is taking care of the track stoof with regular deliveries of tasty bits. For the fashion conscious we got some swrve caps in, cotton or wool available.

I think we are going to close early the last friday of the month to attend critical mass.

I heard numbers were down and whilst not everybody thinks it is a cool idea i reckon riding around with like minded cyclists is a heap of fun. So see you there.
