here at donkelope bikes, we hope everybody is having a great winter and a good holiday season. baker is finally getting some serious snow. everything is pretty much covered, so you can rip it up! the packers are still kicking tons of ass, and ready to storm the playoffs. 12-2, oh yeah!! here's a pic of the new tandem. minus paint. it's a blast to ride. 8 spd internal hub. nice town and country cruiser. the beanies and cycling caps will be picked up before the nude year. can't wait. that's all, G
Well, it's december, and the snow has been flying...a little bit. mt baker was open for about a week, then some warm weather happened. we went up one day, a lot of exposed trees, stumps, rocks, etc. received the new decals. pretty sweet lookin'. they look good on my freshly powdercoated shred machine. putting some touches on the tandem before paint. and the custom fork. the beanies and caps should be on the way. then embroidery. go pack!
yo, here are some pics of the webmaster's new ss frame. it's not really the season for a new ride but, hey it's a new ride! speaking of new, donkelope bikes is getting some custom hats made. it'll be a month or so before they are available. they are handmade from recycled clothing. merino wool to be more specific. should be good. also working on a tandem in my free time. it'll be a more city cruiser type. with an internal speed hub. late, G
not too much going on around here. working too much at the "day" job. we're still waiting for summer to set in. i don't think it's going to happen. still good weather for riding though. here's a pic from a recent ride on our local trails. this little critter could be a trail hazard! does anyone make a traction tires for slugs? nice shiny cranks for the ss. good old reliable square taper bb. i love it. and the newest frame, a light ass true temper tube shred machine. it has a mid bb and tiny dropouts. late,G
july 8 was the padden mountain pedal. celebrating its 15th year, it's the longest running mtb race in washington. the race is part of the indie series. padden is definitely one of the best courses on the series. no flat, and lots of single track. there was a chaotic expert class start. every expert rider lined up for a mass start to a 6 foot wide trail. maybe 100 yards away. it was crazy but fun. i'm not sure what was up with the belly dancing. greg
