Maxi Kits, Wheels, and Pepe

The Polyvalent maxi build kits are back in stock and have been selling fast. The maxi kit includes:
  • A Polyvalent frame set
  • Grand Cru seat post
  • Tektro CR-720 brakes
  • Cable hangers for the brakes
  • Grand Cru sealed bearing headset
  • Grand Cru Touring Wheels
  • Zeppelin 58mm fenders
  • Porteur Handlebars or course handlebars. Your choice.
  • VO quill stem
  • Polyvalent crankset
  • Grand Cru bottom bracket
  • Headset & bottom bracket installation, if you want
  • Any other components ordered at the same time are 10% off. 
Rando maxi build kits are also back.

We have 650b wheels again. They are built with the Grand Cru touring hubs and Diagonale rims. Front and rear (in both 130mm and 135mm spacing) are available.

Most other wheels are back in stock, including our fixed and touring 700c wheels.

This is a photo of Robert unloading the wheel truck with our new pallet-stacker. It's like a muscle powered forklift. We call him Pepe, our little mule (the pallet-stacker, not Robert). We'd been borrowing a forklift from Chesapeake Light Craft, but felt we finally needed our own. Instead of getting a carbon spewing LPG powered forklift we got Pepe. It's actually a pretty good quad workout pumping that pedal to raise the forks. So Robert may still spew a fair bit of carbon.

I hope you lower that load before Pepe shows you what happens when those little wheels hit a pebble and stop dead in their tracks.

don't worry about carbon

Anon, Don't worry about Pepe. He's a sure footed beast, if a little stubborn. And we have loads of experience with forklifts. The forks are sinking even as Robert pushes.
