Mountain Bike

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.

Cross Bike

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.

Velocity Major Tom Sale!

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.
