We're back from two weeks on the road getting to/from Denver for NAHBS. The show went well, and it was good to meet everyone who stopped by the booth. The video above gives a virtual tour of our booth. The show had more vendors this year than ever but not quite as many attendees, due in part to a snow storm on Sunday.

We were fortunate enough to get our hands on this Surly Krampus frameset, a pair of Rabbit Hole rims, and a pair of Knard tires from the first production batch of these parts. The bike was built for a customer in Calgary, Alberta, Canada for bike-packing, including plans to ride the Tour Divide event aboard it. The 2745 mile Tour Divide is a self-supported, mostly off-road race that follows the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route along the spine of the Rocky Mountains from Banff, Alberta to Antelope Wells, New Mexico.
It's been a long time in coming, but we finally have an online store at http://cyclemonkey.bigcartel.com/. You can find all the Rohloff small parts plus Gates Carbon Drive belts and pulleys, Magura brakes, Wippermann chains, Race Face cranks and chainrings, and some other items commonly used for setting up bikes with Rohloff SPEEBHUBs. Look for Schlumpf small parts to be posted shortly.
We built this bright green commuter for one of our customers in Anchorage, AK. He had been commuting on an aluminum cyclocross frame and wanted to switch to a steel bike for better comfort. He was also looking for a more durable frame to do some touring on. He had picked up a used Rohloff SPEEDHUB 500/14 and sent it down to us for an overhaul and to be built up with a Chris King front hub into a wheelset.
We built this steel touring bike for a customer in Henderson, NV to replace the Surly Cross Check that he had been riding. He came to us two and a half years ago to build a rear wheel with a Rohloff SPEEDHUB 500/14 to replace the derailleur system on his Cross Check, and a couple months later, we built him a matching front wheel with a Phil Wood Touring hub.
