Two New Blue Bikes

Posted: July 19th, 2011 | Author: John | Filed under: Uncategorized | No Comments »

We recently completed two very different blue bikes:

On the left a short chainstay curved seat tube 29er, on the right a Rohloff equipped  break away couplered upright road/touring bike.

Designed by Miles and built by John, this 29er is a bit more nimble than most production frames, while still keeping the big wheel advantages of stability and easy rolling over bumps.  We have ridden quite a few other 29ers, and have both missed the handling of 26″ wheels in tight switchbacks, narrow singletrack tree threading and other fun situations that we seek out.   This design shortens up the back of the bike and makes for a really fun handling frame.

This bike will be used for long comfortable road rides and tours all over the world. Equipped  with the Ritchey Break Away system it fits neatly in a suitcase for travel.  The Rohloff hub wheelset from cyclemonkey should give many years of worry free service in all conditions.

We are still Alive!

700c Kogswell p/r racks

Posted: July 27th, 2010 | Author: miles | Filed under: Uncategorized | No Comments »

We have a handful of racks for the 700c kogswell p/r we need to sell. They are powder coated semi gloss black. 200 each + 30 dollars shipping. Once these are gone we wont be selling these at this price again anytime soon, they simply take too much time to make, but we need to clear these out to make room for new projects.

INNA Jam comes for a visit!

Dafna Kory of INNA pickle INNA jam came over today with her sister Raheli to help test the prototype Roseland 26×20 cargo bike for the next few weeks. She makes delicious pickles and jams, which are entirely distributed by bicycle, and is the kind of business we would like to see riding this bike. Check out her stuff here.

Price increase and batch update.

After much consideration we are raising the price for our porteur racks to 250 dollars.

Additionally the batch of 700c p/r racks is nearly done and should be at the powder coaters by tuesday. Get in touch if you would like to reserve one.

We are finally working on a batch of Porteur racks to fit 700C Kogswell p/r’s after a number of unforeseen delays. Above is a shot of John tacking a rack platform. We should have this batch off to our powdercoater soon.

Boggs V

Posted: April 4th, 2010 | Author: admin | Filed under: adventures | No Comments »

Yesterday John and I rode in Boggs V; the fifth running of the Boggs 8 hour race at Boggs Demonstration forest on Cobb Mountain. We participated in the 2 person single speed division and finished 5th place out of 6 entrants in our class. I rode my rigid curved seat tube 29er  (pictured) and John rode his blue 26in single speed; both made in the Roseland shop. The conditions were far rougher than last year but we still had a great time and were already looking forward to next year!
