In 2011, Matt Nelson attended the United Bicycle Institute—or UBI—in Portland, Oregon, and has been building bikes ever since.
I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than by ordering a locally made-by-hand bike.
Here are a few of the bikes coming out of our shop as of late.
Leave it to Wrenchard to build up a clean single speed 27.5 hardtail like a boss. That ‘illusion purple’ finish has depth for days!
Contact me to build yours.

In case you missed it, Ali’s Instagram account has been overflowing with scenes from her amazing accomplishments this past weekend at CXLA (or LB, Long Beach, this year, as the case would be).
We are all very proud of her and her success – Chapeau Ali!
Be sure to congratulate her and winner, Katie Clouse, when you see them next.
Last weekend I was fortunate enough to get to take my family on a road trip to Colorado. We had a great time visiting with family and friends in Denver. In Boulder, I found myself facing the “Belgian Stairs” again.
That posted sign actually resides on the intermediate landing, so your looking at the top run of a double set – oh, I think I just through up in my mouth a little bit.
Can’t wait to go back and do it all again next year.
Special thanks to Mountain Moon Photography for capturing the action.
