"Best Finish"

This beautiful Ti Deluxe 29er single speed brought home the award for "Best Finish" from the North American Handmade Bicycle Show!

It features Paragon Polydrop dropouts and a prototype ENVE mountain fork that was painted to match with Freshwater Pearl and Sun Kissed Orange. As we had to explain to the NAHBS judges, yes it is all paint.

Thanks again to John Jackson of NotStock Photography for the awesome photos.

Spring is here. Enjoy the weather and go shred!

VO Maple Adventure Ride

Last weekend's Vermont Overland Maple Adventure Ride made for an epic day.  Good friends and beautiful scenery paired well with the cold weather, icy descents, muddy roads, and partially boiled syrup served straight from the tap!  Here are a few photos from the event, taken by Key Photography.

Thanks to Peter Vollers and the Overland crew for a sweet ride!
