TekPak

Although I preach 'free your back from the pack,' sometimes you still want or need a backpack.
My buddy Alex still uses one and he was looking to carry his iphone on the shoulder strap...

AntiEpic Gravel ride

Did a little course scouting on Sun with Ben from Mountain Bike Radio and Dave from Nord bicycles of the AntiEpic 50 miles route just outside of Greenland CO.
Another bluebird Colorado day!

The AntiEpic is free, unsupported and tons of primo gravel. Sign up over at Riding Gravel!
As a bonus, the ride starts and finishes at Pikes Peak Brewery. Perfect.

The HalfPipe

This idea's been bouncing around my head ever since I saw something similar last year at NAHBS. With the ever common sloping top tube and the idea to use that space, the HalfPipe was born.

Custom means Custom

Have an idea for a Pak for a specific location?

Simply send me a cardboard template and a picture for reference. Here's one for Dane and his Canfield Nimble9. 
Perfect ToolPak for a tube, CO2, levers and a multitool.

Fat biking!

I made the trip out to Como Colorado on Friday the 24th for the Abominable Fat bike championships on Saturday the 25th. Friday evening saw cool temps and good course conditions, but alas as the night descended upon us the temps never got as low as we would have liked. This meant soft snow on course and warm temps on Sat morning.
Lots of good people, a GREAT venue and plenty of miles of smiles... I'll be back next year for more!

Yours truly, making that Fat bike look good!

Just when you think you can trust people...

*STOLEN*
verb (used with object), stole, sto·len, steal·ing.

   1.
to take (the property of another or others) without permission or right, especially secretly 
or byforce

One of my best friends had his beloved Surly Krampus stolen last night right before we were to depart for our annual Thurs night ride. Locked, under lights and all.

To all my friends in MN, MO, IA, WI, CO, FL, UT, GA, IL and every other state, please keep an eye open for this very unique Krampus.

Parts:
Large Surly Krampus
Cannondale Lefty carbon fork (not pictured)
XX1 crank with XT 1x10
KS dropper post
Green seat, Green H-Bars
Custom JPaks FramePak, RukSak and SnakPak (all the same colorway)
Knards, Rabbit holes, Project 321 front hub

Please don't let some low-life, scumbag, non-deserving, piece of shit get away with this.
