A while ago I did a neat conversion of a 160mm Chris King Tandem axle to a 150mm bolt through for 12mm axle. A series of shots of the process can be seen here. Then another axle turned up from the deep woods of Sweden last week, and i gave it the same treatment. It […]
Christian Bloom have been working hard on the new logo- and headbadge design, and we’re almost there. I’d say we’re at 99%. And I’m totally stoked on the design. Can’t wait to put this on my bikes. The plan is to have the headbadge die-cast with enamel for that “classy” look we all like. Stay […]

Most importantly the pages will have an image gallery soon. During the first two months of 2007 a lot of […]
