I want it raw


Look familiar? probably not...
Without the paint, I doubt most would recognize this Cinelli Vigorelli.
I remember why I admired this bike, look at the frame geometry, it's sick.

Design for the future

This is one dope creation. This was created by a couple of students at one of the premier design schools in the U.S., Art Center College of Design. Unfortunately, the design is ahead of our time, for we have no such technology to support mag-lev style wheels.

The end of a beautiful thing

As quoted from Whitney Moyer, the owner of Moyer Cycles

"I have accepted a position as an operator trainee at the South Texas Project and have moved to the sleepy little town of Palacios, TX.

What this means for the business - effectively, I'm shutting up shop. I'll continue to build frames, but only for myself and close friends for the forseeable future. This will allow me to explore a couple of ideas about where I want to take my craft and give me time to work out a more sustainable business model.

If they work out, I'll be back to making frames for others in about 5-10 years in a limited, spare-time, capacity.

If not - well, I have a kickass job in a booming industry - and I'm extremely proud of the quality of work that I was able to put out there in my very short time as a builder.

I'll be writing up a 'lessons learned' within the next month or so in order to highlight some of the pitfalls that I encountered as a new builder, and to show you some of the details as to why I came to this decision.

Thank you very much for all of your support and comments over the past year or two. I really appreciate every one of them!"


It's sad to see such a truly creative frame builder just completely pick up and leave for something else. Wish I knew what this new job in a booming industry was though....
Anywho, I'll leave you with a quick overview of his work:

This bike is first-rate, I can't get enough of the rear tri-spoke.
It must be a late model specialized / Araya?
I would consider trading for something like this.
This move is raw.

A happy medium

Remember these ? Well I found my happy medium and here they are.
So I bought a set of MKS Steel toe clips with leather and have been riding them for the last week.

Problems:
  1. I found that the leather on the outside of the cage would still rip off and the sewing would come undone(within a few days).
  2. The steel clips are really tight on the tops of your shoes and are tough to loosen up. I figure it will loosen up as I ride them more.
The Benefits:
  1. By wrapping the cage with 3M electrical tape, I maintained the beloved quietness of having wrapped cages and I get better, re-applicable protection.
  2. The ride comfort of the wrap is still more comfortable than bare cage pressing on my feet
My Conclusion:
Don't waste your dough on leather wrapped clips(unless your riding style is less intensive/destructive than my own). Buy a set of MKS Steel Toe clips and wrap them yourself with electrical tape! DIY for life! < homo
