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.
A nice look at the front end.
An Avid BB7 disk brake makes thing stop in a hurry up front.
A pair of sweet Paul brake levers; always made in the USA!
Portland Designs Whiskey leather grips add style & comfort.
Broken bike! A hint at its fold-ability.
A close-up of the business end.
A Brooks leather saddle: the standard for leathery comfort!
The Shimano Alfine internal 11 speed hub has a great gear range with the easiness of a simply maintained internal hub!
A look at the custom hand-built wheels. The Alfine rear & Paul front.

Just look at all of this Japanese brass, copper, & stainless steel goodness!
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.

Mustache bar makes the cockpit super comfy.
Brooks saddle & Acorn saddle bag class it up like no other can.
Another fine hand-built wheelset round things off nicely!

In celebration of Bike To Work Week, The Broken Spoke teamed up(once again) with Griddle Me This! to offer all of you fine bicycle commuters lunch on us!
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!
