I want action

25 02 2015

Although I can get as bike-nerdy as the next guy looking at a custom-built bike, I think seeing that same bike doing what it is designed to do–in action–is that much cooler.

Hopefully we’ll more shots of this cool bike in action in the future.

Now, if you’ll excuse me…I have to get that dreadful I want action Poison tune out of my head.





Stop the presses: a 26″ custom Trail Boss

29 07 2014

Hot damn…this is one awesome looking bike.

Standard Bykes built up this custom 26″ Trail Boss for artist Chris Piascik and featured it a short while ago on their Facebook feed.

I’m actually kinda speechless about this bike, I’m digging on it so hard.

I don’t have all the particulars on it, geo-wise, but Standard has said in the comments regarding this bike that:

If we get a few guys into ordering these we’ll do a “stock” run of them…which means regular stock pricing!

Stock pricing? This bike is getting more tempting by the minute.

I have to stop looking at the picture.
