Wheels manufacturing make high quality ferrules that are full brass in 4mm & 5mm housing. This would be a nice accent to your bike.

Yeah, I gun-blued a bike frame once.  Looked awesome.  Until it got wet and rusted.

Gun bluing is controlled oxidization.  If you don’t maintain it, it goes right to pot with a quickness.

This is what mine looked like when I started

Freaking wicked looking bike there! With the wet where I live, this isn’t going to be long lasting.

Introducing the Big Gulp Summer Weight Kit

We're stoked to start making a big push with our new kit the "Big Gulp." This time we've got two big reasons to celebrate. One is the fact that Saisha once more killed the design, this time with a sweet homage to the iconic 7-11 jerseys of the 1980's, and secondly this is our first kit with our new supplier Pactimo. With the new manufacturer, we've taken a big step up in materials, especially in the chamois.
