New Bike Day!!! A Surly Ogre for Josh. OK. OK. We are bias to this bike. Rover Brown Ogre. Yes.
A modern day gravel grinder re-purposed from Christian's mid-90s cross bike Waterford. We built some wheels, found some widgets and cool racks. Now we are stoked for this frame to get back to business and find some dirt.
8 AM ride Saturday will leave right on time so please be ready if you are joining us for about 2-3 hours of riding and enjoying Topanga. Always Hills. Always Fun. Always a good crowd of people having fun. #unpredictyourjourney
UnPredict Your Wednesday next week in Big Bear. We will leave when the shop closes at 6 and drive up. Ride for a couple hours to camp near this photo and enjoy Big Bear Wednesday morning. Join us if you want. #unpredictyourwednesday
Remember that @surlybikes kitted up bikepacking Ogre we rented out a couple weeks ago? Here it is again on its adventure. Success!!! @high__adventure reached out a while ago as he planned a trip with his buddy Ben from the East Coast to do one of their first major Bikepacking trips through Utah. He and Ben needed bikes. We have pulled together a whole slew of Bikepacking bikes with everything needed for a trip including pads, tents and sleeping bags. It is so exciting to hear about the first couple trips with the gear made easy. YEEEEHHHHAAAA!!!!
The creative energy was off the graph at the Outpost today. @johnny_irion and @timbluhm jammed some tunes. Why? @grant.ch of @blackwing had stopped by a year ago and we all became instant friends. Hearing that The Doors and Eagles jammed in the shop back in the day. (Mama Cass / Mona’s and Papa’s among others lived next door a couple decades ago and used the Outpost for lots of jam sessions) Grant is part of Blackwing pencils and motived to bring a couple of his favorite musicians by for a jam session now. Why still? Johnny Irion is John Steinbeck’s great nephew and John. (Yes that one) used Blackwing pencils to write some of those classic novels we read. Blackwing is keeping the creative energy alive and today was part of it. We are so stoked to be immersed in the music scene and part of today. Incredibly amazingly awesome day. #blackwingpencil#blackwing#unpredictyourjourney#johnnyirion#topanga#music#timbluhm#themotherhips#johnsteinbeck#steinbeck
