Mailbox Bike

Considering today’s Tour news, I think I’d paint a Yellow Jersey on this mailbox, paint the flag to look like a syringe, and with photos of Ricardo Ricco coming out the back.

Rolling Jackass Center Stand

This is the final, working version of the Rolling Jackass Center Stand in use on Bettie 2.0. The stand has been modified through a series of prototyping changes to fit a Nuvinci drivetrain. The stand should work as well with Nexus and Rohloff or any other internally-geared system or gears.

The stand works just like a motorcycle center stand. It parks the bike and provides a very stable platform for loading, unloading, and just sitting, sipping a brew. Up front in the cockpit, there’s a level to release the stand, pull the bike back, and up onto the legs.

The stand is even Pug approved, as an excellent observation platform.

Available from Rolling Jackass – website coming soon – the stand retails for $375.00. We’re considering a Hugga edition. Let us know in comments, if you’re interested.

Swiftwick One Ole

Swiftwick One Ole

I’m a fan of good socks. My wife likes nice shoes - I like nice socks. The guys over at Swiftwick sent the Hugger a pair of their Ole One sock to try out. “The best sock you’ll ever wear” - not sure on that statement, but they are darn fine.

Freeman Transport

A reader tipped us to Freeman Transport, hand-built, steel S&S frames:

We are hand-building bikes here in Missoula, Montana. All steel with S and S couplings. The frames break in half and fit into a bag. They can be checked on airplanes with no extra charge. One simple tool to put them back together. Ride to and from the airport. We designed these bikes for leaving the mountains to get some culture and hang with our friends in the city. Right now we are only making fixed gears. No brakes, No cables, No mess. Bikes come with a bag for travel. We’ll also make some product.

Freeman Transport is working in a niche and using blogs and social media to market to it. Very nice.
