]]> Gallery Addition: Dick's New Ride 29+ Hardtail MTB Mon, 30 Mar 2015 23:37:19 +0000

Richard is one of the original Quadra Island “Old Dogs”. We’ve made him a few bikes over the years and in return, he has made us a few guitars. Neither of us are afraid of a little experimentation. Lots of fun going on in this 29+ hardtail mtb. Super short 420mm Chainstays, internal routing including stealth dropper. 83mm wide BB with 170mm rear hub for zero dish wheel, clearance and awesome chainline.


]]> Gallery Addition: Internet Shananigans Wed, 25 Mar 2015 17:25:28 +0000 So every couple of months our internet connection goes down for all kinds of crazy rural living reasons. We have 400′ of ethernet that goes along a horse trail, through a cave where some critter is currently residing, up a jagged cliff, 20′ up a tree to a radio pointed at another radio 4km away across Seymour narrows. What could possibly go wrong? Well, THIS time, it seems that the critter living in the cave thought the cable looked tasty and sampled it in about 10 different spots. Some late night spelunking, armed with ethernet crimpers and 2 days of trouble shooting, we are now able to comment on whether Obama should be vaccinating his gay kitten before ISIS can infect it with the Ebola virus.


]]> Gallery Addition: Ron's Steel Road Adventure Sat, 07 Mar 2015 18:06:41 +0000 Ron’s steel road adventure bike is ready to roll out the door! Fit with Shimano Ultegra 6800 buildkit, Velocity wheels, Chris King pops of colour. A classic road build equipped with long reach brakes allowing clearance for slightly bigger tires and fenders, if need be. Ron is not only a teacher of music, he’s an accomplished bass player. There’s a touch of that reference in the paint. It’s all about the BASS. Ron and Lesa are coming by today, take her for a spin!!!!
