Big Apple

Rear wheel is ready to go. Schwalbe Big Apple tires
are the choice for this build. (26 X 2.35) If you are setting up a disc brake xtracycle the rear is designed for a 203mm rotor. Just have to paint the forks and I can get rolling!

Disc Brake Tab!

Tough to get a photo a night with your phone-but here goes. A 20-something year old BRC with a disc brake on the original uni-crown fork.

Yuba Mundos in Tanzania

I love these photos. They couldn't even wait to fully unwrap the bikes!
Mama Nachibona enjoyed riding Mundo bike at Mtula!

BRC Sierra

Here are a couple of pics. Sorry for the poor quality. Stripped the bike down- first project is the forks.
Going disc brake all the way- want to keep the original BRC unicrown fork.
Traced out a disc brake tab on another fork and crafted this. Sparks will fly tonight!

Projects- Xtracycles and Boats!

Had a little left over energy last night. Hatched a plan to get a couple of projects going with this blog as motivation. I hope to document both of thes projects on a (more) regular basis.

Project 1)
I have had an Xtracycle up and running for some months now. Its setup on a white aluminum MTB frame. Rides awesome- but I am drawn to STEEL. Got a twenty something year old BRC mountain bike frame. (BRC = Boyes and Rosser Cycles) Some of their bikes were pretty well set up. Follow along as I shove an Xtracycle on it- including disc brakes. And its Black. Photos to follow.
Project 2)
A partly finished Cedar Strip Canoe. How much time will I have- or is this a new-years resolution? 18 feet at the water line and nicely making wake..........

Bicycles for Humantiy

Its happening. 447 Bikes in the container. Shipping details to follow!
