An elegant Fixed-Gear Commuter destined for the streets of London… the Charge Plug Titanium.

This is a Charge Plug Titanium, our friend Alex was so stoked to find out that it rides even better than it looks!

Sugino 75 cranks and the MKS RX1 Track Pedals with MKS Toe-Clips and Soma Padded Straps make a nice classic-looking combination that fits most types of shoes.

The huge built-in tensioners and bullet-ended stays are very tough looking! The gold chain is a nice splash of bling!

A Wound Up road fork, Thomson Stem, and Origin8 Stash bar along with our Suzue/ H Plus Son's handbuilt wheelset round out the parts on this lovely bike.

A Single-Speed 29er that our Photographer absolutely loves to ride, the VooDoo Soukri… bruiser model.

My VooDoo Soukri Single-Speed takes me to some awesome trails, this is the top of Sidewinder... Ya!

The drop-outs on this Soukri are so versatile... you can even put gears on, if you swing that way. The Reynolds 631 tubing is SO forgiving to ride, in spite of what that spine graphic makes you think. The Saint cranks and TimeSport Z-Strong pedals are stiff enough to get me up the hill... most of the time.

The Soma Clarence handlebar is my favorite... ESI silicone grips, Hope Bar Plugs and Paul's LOVE levers of course. The VooDoo Zombie 500 makes the head-angle nice and relaxed for me, and no toe-drag.

Avid BB7 Brakes, Hope Pro II Hubs and skewers, Spot Single-Shot Spacer Kit and a Rennen (machined Alloy) 22 tooth cog round out the rear-end.

This bike climbs, descends and corners like a dream! The Maxxis Ardent is a great ALL-PURPOSE BURLY tire! 2.4 up front 2.25" in back!

 

We built this for a scientist who needed an SUV that he can travel with… we LOVE the result.

The Surly Karate Monkey complete with our Mellow Velo upgraded build... we start with a stock complete KM and add the following:

Stan’s Arch tubeless rims laced to Ringle Dirty Flea hubs

44 tooth Truvativ chainring added to the 34 tooth that comes with,,, just to widen your range.

SLX Derailleurs front and rear 11-32 SLX cassette

Dura-Ace shifters mounted to Paul Thumbies (our favorite), switch to drop-bars without buying anything else!

ESI foam grips (our favorite)

Black Ops plastic platforms, they don’t hurt your shins too much!

2x9 drive is way flexible!

 

Dura-Ace, Paul Thumbies... classic!

 

The details on this Battleship Grey frame are awesome. The gusset and the bent seat-tube are form and function at it's best!

Check out this LOVELY All-City Nature Boy that we got for our buddy Kenny, it will make YOU green with envy!

The All-City Nature Boy comes complete or, in Kenny's case, we got a frame and fork since he had parts to re-use from a bike that didn't fit him as well as this one does.

 

The fork on this beast is just beautiful, straight-leg, double-hollow crown and lugged drop-outs. It has a great head-badge too!

 

The rear drop-outs are lovely too, the bridge detail is classy as hell!

All of their bikes are very classic and cool… call us to ask about the other models’ availability.
