Hemp cord wrap

Nothing worse than having to rewrap your bars because electrical tape won't holed its grip.  I prefer to use hemp cord shellacked into place.  It doesn't slip and it last longer than electrical tape.

Portland Design Works Takeout™

The takeout™ basket makes a handsome addition to any road or city bike. Take a trip to the corner store and secure a six pack of bottles in the roll top bag, or keep a food stash and extra layer of clothing handy for a day long gravel road ramble or a night on the town.

The takeout™ also features an eyelet for attaching light brackets and a spot to drop your u-lock.

* Available June 1st, 2011

A Hubs Resurgence

A few weeks back I wrote a post about a wheel I found outside a local bike shop that was tossed to the trash, the wheel was tossed out because it was badly bent and unrideable.  Other than a small spot in the rim, and a few spokes, the wheels parts were in good condition.  I used the rim for business card holders, as for the hub and spokes they had been sitting in a parts box for a few weeks, until today...

I rebuilt the wheel and now this garbage hub has found a new home under this Burley Tandem.
