Bike Builds in Queue & Beyond

Ridley Bikes Orion Demo
3 Flares 3 Flares ×

Have a few bike builds on tap right now since traveling and demoing bikes is part of my day job, along with trying to enjoy cycling as much as possible.

Surly Karate Monkey with Internally Geared Hub

I’m going to be trying out a Shimano Alfine rear 8-speed hub on a 29er mountain bike, that will be mountain biked hard. Everything is built, just need a rear 160mm centerlock disc rotor for the back wheel. Can’t really mountain bike with only a front brake! (This is an 18″ and on my older Karate Monkey frame)

Surly Karate Monkey Single Speed

16″ Karate Monkey should be delivered tomorrow that I’ll be putting a RockShox Reba RL on the front. Trying to convert more and more women to 29ers and hopefully single speeds!

Surly Pugsley Fat Bike

You’ve seen the pictures. 18″ Fat bike that I’m lending to shops in the area to get folks interested and going ga-ga over.

Ridley Orion

Dropped off the parts this morning for my goto mechanic (when I don’t have time) to build up a medium Orion with Shimano Ultegra and Fulcrum Racing Zero wheels.

Salsa Spearfish

My goto mountain bike right now, short travel, big wheels, and orange!

Salsa Mukluk

Another fatbike that is living currently in SC to help take over the dirt road centuries!

Salsa El Mariachi

You’ve seen the photos of the Mariachi’s. Dominate with the alternator drop out. Single speed, geared – it don’t matter – just do it.
