The Speedball

I always had a special place in my heart for the old Klunkers based on beach cruisers created by the pioneers of mountain biking like Charlie Kelly and Gary Fisher. So when choosing a frame for my new monstercross build Stooge Cycles was the obvious choice. Stooge is a one man band run by Andrew… Continue reading The Speedball

Instigator ++ Update

Slowly getting somewhere with the stupid Surly Instigator plus plus build. The dropper post is served and working. I´ve been shaving side knobs off the Nates i got from a friend for chain stay clearance, it fits but i can´t really tell until i try it out on trails, might rub in corners. Well, if… Continue reading Instigator ++ Update

Instigator ++ The fat bike wannabe

Since I've built up the BTR the bike building kind of been on hold. Usually I have a project during the winter. But since I now have the ultimate bike (BTR💛) its not really a problem or...? Yeah, to be honest, I miss having a project. To afford my dream bike I got rid of… Continue reading Instigator ++ The fat bike wannabe

Roamer update #5 Build and geometry

I get a lot of questions about the geometry on the Roamer so here is the build and numbers.   My idea about this frame was to get a bit more fun and aggressive fat bike. It´s basically an all mountain hardtail with 4.6" tires. Ready to fit a 120 mm suspension fork up front… Continue reading Roamer update #5 Build and geometry

Roamer update #4 “There can be only one”

After a series unfortunate events the last pices of the puzzle finally fell into place. Finally time to put the Roamer together. I took a day couple of days off from work to build her up. I really enjoy bike building and every thing went according to plan. The only thing that was a hassle… Continue reading Roamer update #4 “There can be only one”

Roamer update #3 The arrival

Today at noon the long awaited box from BTR-Fabrications landed at work. It´s been a long wait, but well worth it. Un-boxing a new bike/frame is like Christmas for bike geeks, you know the feeling. When waiting this long, and when it´s a custom frame that  is only one of a kind the expectations are… Continue reading Roamer update #3 The arrival

The Oddiy upgrade

Sometimes you just fall in love and there is just nothing you can do about it. I did and now i cant think of anything else. I don't really remember when i saw the wonderful works of Burnsey at Oddity Cycles. Pretty sure it was on Instagram at Endlesbikegirl or Taddihogg. They both run beautiful… Continue reading The Oddiy upgrade

Getto Tubeless Beist Master

Since my adventures on the MAXX Jagamoasta last winter i've been eager to go tubeless and fatter  on my Mukluk.  The test bike was equipped with Schwalbe 4.8" Jumbo Jims but they are very hard to come by. Also i guess they're too big. Instead i had my eyes on the 45nrth Dunderbeist. 4.6" winter… Continue reading Getto Tubeless Beist Master

This left my fat mistress in summer-rest. I had loads of fun on the Instigator this summer, going… Continue reading Mukluk upgrade XT 11

Surly Instigator 2

Ever since i had my On-one 456 I've had a soft spot for steel all mountain hard tails. When sold it to buy a full suspension Specialized I've kind of missed it. I dont know why i have this weakness for these kind of mountain bikes. Perhaps it is the feeling of old school Going… Continue reading Surly Instigator 2
