Here is the first update of many that I need to catch up on!

This is a custom frame up build of a Montague FIT full-size folding frame. It basically has a quick release lever that allows the bike to fold in half horizontally along the seat tube.

The Shimano Alfine internal 11 speed hub has a great gear range with the easiness of a simply maintained internal hub!

There’s even _one & only one_ hand-painted maple themed one that was done by a kung-fu master(maybe)!

It’s hard to beat the awesomeness of a cyclocross bike. But one way to do it is to have it be a kid’s version! This little guy has 24″ wheels & a wee frame for those budding cyclocrossers in our lives.

Here is a sweet setup that we had the pleasure of doing for a very good customer.

It utilizes the White Industries Double Double crankset & freewheel. It essentially allows two different gear ratios while maintaining the simplicity of a single speed setup.

We had such a good turnout that we unfortunately ran out of food before one o’clock. We did raise over $55 for Think Bicycles, though!
