    custom pegoretti responsorium

    Above Category seems to be quite the proper shop. Looking at zoot like this Pegoretti Responsorium makes me really miss working with high-end bikes as such. I’ve always been on the fence with a lot of Pegoretti’s paint, but this bike looks killer – check that custom-painted Deda SC stem! Between the Campagnolo 11-speed, Lightweight Standards, and frame, the bike weighs in well under 15lbs and that’s including pedals and cages too.

    A while back Hunt had a few of his bikes featured at Select Design’s Crank – a cycling inspired art show during the 2010 South End Burlington Art Hop. Peter Wadsworth send some photos after the event but they’ve since been lost when Culture Cycles crashed this past spring. Here we have the Horror fixed and the Map of Burlington 3-speed Fixed cruiser.  Have a look at two more shots of these bikes below and head to the Feature Bikes section for all the detail shots.

  • Week Off Part 3: King Kog &Tall Bike

    Hunt Manley Tall Bike

    Earlier this month, Hunt and I had a week off to head down to Jersey and the city for a little visit. While riding around Brooklyn, we decided to pay Gina and Shawn at King Kog a visit. As soon as we got there it started raining so we hung out inside and did some frimping and chatting. While inside we came across this wild tall bike they had on loan from a friend who’s currently touring on another tall bike he’s made – crazy. They told us to test ride it, so we took it for a spirited stroll down the block and over a few curbs – you’d be S.O.L. trying to wipe the doo-doo eating grin off either of our faces. Thanks guys!

    If you missed the first and second reports from this journey, have a look at those and be sure to browse the other shots below.

  • Updated Feature Bikes

    Van Dessel Country Road Bob

    I know I’ve featured this bike a few times, but it’s been my trusty day-in day-out, do anything, commuter, scorcher and winter rig for nearly 5 years now. Over those years I’ve had my Country Road Bob set up more ways than a Mr. Potato Head at a day care center, and that’s the truth. Here’s a shot in it’s current state as a singlespeed sporting some Soma Sparrow‘s and a new set of Hold Fast‘s. More photos below and over at the Feature page. Be sure to have a look at what’s replaced my bike in the Van Dessel line too.
