We had a blast at the SF Bike Expo

We were hanging out at the SF Bike Expo last weekend (if you wernt, why not?!) and we had a great time. We missed the cross race, as many of you did, surely, but we still had a great time. Amongst the gems spotted at the bike fiesta were this totally rad Landshark tandem mountain bike. Whats not to love? The great components on it? (Magura hydraulic rim brakes :D, Kooka tandem cranks and XTR captain seatpost!) There was a nice selection of vintage steel and we were happy to see a new area that allowed some custom frame builders to showcase their work. And personally I would rather see custom bikes more than a fashion show, but to each their own. Also a shout out to Moth Attack! It was nice to see Megan again and check out some of her work. One of the fanciest bikes to see at the show was Ira Ryan’s bike built for the Oregon Manifest race last month. Really nice, clean work and a great attention to detail.

And while Mr Chain has never been the sort of rider to fly through the air off huge ramps, it is always very impressive to see. The final heats were really exciting and we witnessed more than one front flip. Totally bodacious.
