Elephant Bikes-This is a custom steel frame built with a shorter front center to fit my shorter torso. It’s got a 68 head tube with the 120mm Fox fork on it. With the 650 wheels it’s a lot of fun to ride. Like my cross bike below this has a fair share of American made parts, Sram components and time pedals. The wheels are Stan’s Crest rims with DT Swiss hubs. Of course I run them tubeless.
Gunnar Cycles-This is also a custom built frame. The seat tube measures 56cm, the top tube is 54mm. The fork is also a custom steel bend from Gunnar to fit the frame without any toe overlap. Being cross I have a couple wheelsets both with Velocity A23 rims. Since I have rim brakes I like the same rims so the brake setup stays the same. I have White Ind hubs on one set and Velocity hubs on the other. I keep one pair set up tubeless. The other I have tubes in to make changing to different tires easy.
Other Stuff-Lake shoes, Uvex helmet, Ospray pack, wool socks, thrift store clothing.

I’m lookin’ to create some space in the shop and capitol for a new supply of parts. In stock rims as low as $40, pairs for $70, Also, all Shimano hubs are priced to move too. If that’s not enough these complete hand built wheelsets are marked down even further.
The Velocity Major Tom is a cyclocross specific tubular rim. Their 23mm wide tubular profile is perfect for gluing up cross tires, and the seam relief channel helps with centering. They are tubulars so they are fast. They are built for cyclocross so they are strong. Now they are priced so you can afford the tires to go with them.
I have a few pairs of these some with machined sidewalls some without. cost is $99 pair. Hole counts vary. Call soon for the best selection.

They make great touring wheels and I’ve got lots of them. Their 24 mm profile really lets the tire bead spread out and form a nice round tire shape. The machined sidewalls provide a better braking surface or if you’ve made the switch to disc brakes they can do that too. Also, at just over 500 gr they are lighter and just as strong as other brands alloy touring rims. Complete wheelset prices vary since I can build these up with any number of hubs from Shimano to Chris King to fit your budget. If all that’s not enough, they are also made in Velocity’s U.S. factory. I’ve got them in black and silver for $60 each while supplies last.

Well, it’s the first Saturday in August again. That means it’s time for another Midnight Century ride! That’s right 100 mile bike ride starting at midnight. It’s a great route starting along the Cent Trail, then out into the Palouse for some top notch graveling, through Mica and Spangle, onto the Fish Lake Trail to finish back in the spoke. If you are attending I hope you’ve done some pre-riding. The Palouse can be mighty dark and not very well signed so it’s best to know your turns ahead of time.
