Reuleaux Triangle Wheels

The patent war you had NO idea was going on between a Chinese inventor

AND

this guy at Burning Man

Now if you’d like to kickstart your own Reuleaux Wheeled Bicycle, see this Wolfram demonstration for an example.

Closing Time

Mounted

Rain Bike Mounted

Today is the last day of Elliott Bay Bicycles and on my wall, in my office, is the second bike Bill Davidson built for me. It’s a rain bike, with long-pull brakes and plenty of room for fenders. When the third D was built, the Modal, I rode the rain bike one last time, took off the parts we needed, and hung it up on the wall.

Mount

Custom mount

Later, during a remodel, had a custom wall mount made for it. That was made and mounted with the same care as the first build.

Hung

Mounted with care, like a museum piece

As I glance up occasionally at the frame, it reminds me of the great work we did there, in the shop for the past decade. Remember, between Mark and me, there are no long goodbyes. Just waiting to learn where Mark V lands and for when Bill makes us another bike….

Huge

A huge air Monday…here and there…

Python

While Mark closes down the shop, I’m traveling and spotted this Python. More photos from this trip next week.

Ello to You Too

Socially awkward and building bikes

and here I am on it with David too. The press has lit up with stories about Ello and we know Paul. He’s a cyclist and the subject of our first cover story when we launched a magazine.

From Kid Robot he made another interesting turn, deciding to launch a high-end bicycle company. He’s not exactly a custom bike builder—he doesn’t weld the bikes himself or assemble them—and he’s not exactly a manufacturer either like Trek or Specialized. But he’s designed the bikes (including the sweeping curved lines of his frames), he’s spec’d the builds, selected the partners and overseen the production of the bikes.

Paul Budnitz is a socially-awkward bike builder who previously founded Kid Robot and my first follow on Ello. In the story, David J. Schloss visited with Paul, toured the factory, and rode around on a $6,000 cruiser. Then asks if a crazy, expense cruiser is worth it. Read it for free to find out and as soon as we get them, will offer our Ello invites.
