New Bike Day Cometh...

Frames are coming back from powdercoat throughout the rest of the week, so those of you itching for your mid-summer orders will be getting some UPS tracking numbers this week.

In one of the batches should be some hot shiz for fellow Brooklynite , Jeramiah Jones, who can retire his well-used OG Gangsta Track for one of a very limited run of frames we have in develpment.
Keep an eye out on Jeramiah (and his HOLDFAST straps) for what we'll be coming up with, check back here if we give it the greenlight for production.

For the Shorties.

Above the ear-piercing shriek of the CNC churning out metal shavings last week you could hear another, even more ear-piercing sound: the sound of 35 curious day-camping kids let loose in the shop.

Darren loads the machine for his excited pupils.
Darren gives the photographer the "Worst Idea Ever" face.
Thanks to Science Teacher Sarah for keeping everyone's fingers and toes attached. Call the shop to check our available bookings for birthdays and bar mitzvahs.

Bars and Stars in Australia.

Upstate NYers Geoff Ulmer and his dad have been a really busy duo all season with Geoff racing and his pops doing his best to schedule his son's busy racing schedule. And all that hard work paid off;
At the moment Geoff is the top Jr. Pro downhiller in the country and has just been selected by the USAC to represent the US for the next Downhill Word Championship in Canberra, Australia!

While it's a great achievement to represent America in the fiercest mountainbike races in the world, traveling to Australia isn't free, so we're asking that you dig a little deeper during these times and send a some scratch to the Ulmers so Geoff and Team America won't miss their chance.

It's just a few clicks to send him some support via words and paypal at,
you can check out what he's putting on the auction block to help him catch that plane at JFK.

It's the biggest concrete park in NYC so far, adding to a growing list of public NYC parks, including the latest right up the street from the shop.

no forking way pal...

Here's a few more photos of the unicrown fork we've been working on.

Currently we have Jeremiah from Hold Fast and Toku from W-Base putting some prototypes through the paces. If everything goes to plan, we'll be doing a production run of them in the near future. We'll get some tech info up when we get closer to that time.

We have some more fixed-gear oriented things coming down the pike as well. We'll let you know more when we have some details ironed out.

Oh yeah, and thanks to Jeremiah for hooking up the shop with some Hold Fast straps, they work awesome and they're made in Brooklyn. Heck yea.
