Soma B-Side

Since I recently put a dyno hub on my Vaya, I had a set of 650b wheels/tires that I no longer used on that bike that needed a new home. So, I've now got a Soma B-Side frame to build up as a full rigid singlespeed mtb. Check back soon for pics of the completed bike...

XTR upgrade on Moots MootoX

Good customer and friend James Sanchez recently upgraded his Moots MootoX to 2012 Shimano XTR 2x10. This is my new favorite MTB group. The shifting is flawless ans the brakes are incredible. Of course the Moots frame that the parts are hung on is no slouch. The frame is three years old and will last long enough to see several other groupo changes. James elected to go with the 26x38 chainring combo and an 11/34 10 speed XT cassette. Next week we will add some Ergon grips and Shimano Ice Tech rotors. Ride on Jimmy James!

Stan's No Tubes In Stock

We have been stocking and selling the Stan's No Tubes products for quite a while now and have had great success regarding thier quality and durability. We now have the ZTR Crest 29er stock wheelset in stock in both black and white for $540.00 a set. This wheelset makes a great upgrade for your stock 29er. With Stan's bead socket technology you can run tubeless technology with low pressures and no tire burping. At 175 lbs I have been using the Crest rim for a solid year with no flats or tire burping (tire pressure 28psi). I also reccommend adding some Stan's sealant for safe measure. Stan's published weight is 1575 grams per pair.

Seattle Bicycle Shop

Walked into a nice small bike shop in Seattle with lots of cool classic bikes but the surprise came when the side door spilled into the frame building operation for Davidson Bicycles.
