IMG_2799 Originally uploaded by Truls. Elisabeth and I had the good fortune to spend four days alone while Sofie, our 1,5 year old daughter, got to spend some quality time with her grandparents.

All Phil Wood products are now available. Deliverytime […]

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 […]
