Dario Pegoretti short film

I should have posted this earlier but I forgot it was on. It’s a short film produced by RSA Films and Rapha about the Italian framebuilder Dario Pegoretti. It’s only available for 24 hours and I don’t know when that period started or is stopping so watch it now if you can, before it’s gone.

It’s very good.

Jonathan just picked this up today. We had 2 main aims with this bike, firstly it had to fit right and secondly it had to look like a normal bike. While this wouldn’t normally be a problem, Jonathan is 6’9″ (> 206cm).

Ok, not really, but this patent information suggests they’re at least thinking about it.

Salsa Mukluk

Salsa have just announced the Mukluk, a production snow bike. I know that Surly have had the Pugsley for a while but is there really the demand for something this niche from a major production company? It’ll be interessting to see how it sells.
