A Remix at SXSW 11

We announced Built last week and just published our Mobile Social SXSW 11.

Note this year we’re just riding around Austin to bring back the ride as it was a few years ago. We’ll end up where we like for beers and tacos, but no big kegger.

Col du Kent and the Lunch Ride

South of Seattle in the flats and hills of Kent you’ll find this Col. It’s not particularly steep or long, but fast enough to have you gasping and reaching for gears that aren’t there. It’s ridden at least once a week, every week, by the Novara crew on their lunch ride. They know every curve, bump, and rise in the road. If you happen to ride with them, or they come up you, it’s best to take their cues. Follow what they do. If they move you move. They shift you shift.

Lunch Rides

We’ve heard of other legendary lunch rides and REI employees have been ripping each other’s legs for more than two decades. What’s your lunch ride? Is it legendary?

Right around the bend there on the left, is where they’ll hit it hard.

On-One 29er Carbon Race

That’s a good looking bike from On One. I raced an On One single speed last year and to put it politely it was, “not a fav.” This bike looks like a whole different level from On One.

Driftwood Cruisers

A skilled cabinet maker, Preston Brown, turns a bike hobby into a business with Driftwood Cruisers.

Mahog1

This is a bike you’re likely not going to see in handbuilt bike shows, but look at the craftsmanship and “small-batch,” one-of-a-kind creation. Each is built from premium hardwoods and custom finishes.

Mahog3

Preston has brought a hotrod aesthetic to bike building and he’s obviously doing it for the love. Read more about him in this profile from AZ Central.

Mahog4

Would like to see how he’d fair in an ultimate utility bike challenge. Really what’s more city bike than a cruiser that looks cool or the utility of riding on a boardwalk on a Summer evening?

Robo-Rainbow

An instrument of mass destruction or a complicated technical solution to aide in simple acts of vandalism. Also a bike-based, robot, graffiti machine.

Hat tip to @indi_gone and we’ve requested a contact with the bot maker to invite them to Built at SXSW.
