  3. King Cage had the most hands-on booth at the 2011 NAHBS. The owner of the company started working in the cycling industry in 1992 at Fat City Cycles. He went on to work for Ibis Cycles, Merlin Metalworks, Jo Breeze Cycles, Ted Wojac cycles, and Yeti Cycles. Now he spends his days making Titanium and stainless cages. He's really got it down to a science, which you can see in the video below.

  4. Tony and I are proud to share Breadwinner Cycle's latest video, a tribute to my first-ever Oregon Outback ride. I rode 360 miles in 28 hours, 4 minutes, which meant not sleeping, seeing some amazingly rugged parts of Oregon and getting to know the Breadwinner B-Road. Riding the B-Road, I was the first rider to finish the Outback.

    Tony and I based the B-Road design on decades of riding gravel roads. Spending my youth training and riding on the rural roads of Iowa lead me to win the Trans Iowa gravel road race twice. We like to think the first ever Oregon Outback victory is proof that we know how to make a great gravel racer. The B-Road is a versatile, durable and fast adventure bike built with disc brakes, room for 40mm tires, fenders and light rack capability. While I prefer it for gravel roads, the B-Road works just as well as a fast commuter, light touring rig or a winter training bike. --Ira Ryan

  5. A project from, Made by Hand is a new short film series celebrating the people who make things by hand—sustainably, locally, and with a love for their craft.

    Our fifth film turns to bike maker Ezra Caldwell (Fast Boy Cycles), who was diagnosed with cancer in 2008. When the cancer threatens to shatter his love of bikes, Ezra survives by documenting his illness as thoroughly as his craft.
