Cannondale SliceRS, Narrow is Aero!!

Just finished building up a brand new SliceRS which is Cannondale's super narrow Time Trial bike.  Internal cable routing keeping the cable housing stationary with relation to the handlebar.  Integrated v-brakes hidden  behind the front fork and under the bottom bracket.  Hinged front end affording an extremely clean and narrow profile for the leading edge [...]

A Titanium Single Speed is Born

The foundation of any bicycle, the wheels represent not only the connection to the ground but the piece of the bike that takes the force from the pedals and turns it into the speed that squeezes tears from your eyes.  Picking the proper spokes to do the job matching the gauge to the [...]

After four years of almost perfect weather for each of the preceding versions of the Baker's Dozen, Mother Nature decided to test the mettle of both the race organizers and all of the hardy racer's that plan to spend a weekend matching themselves against the rock and dirt of Rockland Farm.  Fortunately for Mike and [...]

Moots Mooto X YBB Pimped!

Cattle Crossing a Muddy Success!

Standing out in the  pasture with the temperature hovering in the 30's and rain a constant companion all day it was amazing to see all the excited racers drive up and prepare to cover their bikes and bodies with some of the finest Rockland Farm mud.  As the ruts grew deeper, the track grew wider [...]
