Ep: 42 - Thomas Porter - Porter Cycles | Custom Handmade Bicycles

"Life by Bike"Thomas Porter taught himself basic bicycle mechanics by scavenging bikes out of the metal pile at the local transfer station, taking them apart and reassembling them (sometimes with new paint or as singlespeeds) for himself and his friends. Coupling that passion with his metalworking experience gathered at art school and working as a metal fabricator, he officially opened doors on a bike framebuilding practice when he started Porter Cycles in 2010. We were fortunate to see his handy work firsthand at the North American Handmade Bicycle Show, and the mountain bike/urban utility vehicle at his booth immediately jumped out as one of our personal favorite bikes of the show. It is not often you see a frame based on a 26-inch wheel platform built up with a generator hub and light, fenders and an incredible plated front and rear rack system.

Ep: 41 - Phil Harwood - Alchemy Bicycles: Painting Bikes & Carbon Bicycle Construction

Phil Harwood is a bicycle painter at Alchemy Bicycles in Denver, Colorado. We talked to Phil about how his experiences as a bike messenger in Boston and as a painter's assistant and mechanic in the Independent Fabrications shop in NH have prepared him for the current challenge of painting high-end titanium and carbon frames with Alchemy Bicycles. Phil offers insights about the multiple processes that each frame undergoes during the painting process and the level of care that is paid to each frame to assure a durable and sharp-looking finish.Additionally, we hear about Phil's experience building his own carbon bike from the ground up, starting with rolls of carbon fiber and making the tubes that make up the frame. Make sure you check out the Alchemy Arktos full-suspension carbon mountain bikes that are changing people's expectations of how good a full suspension bike can look.Phil can be found on Instagram at: @philipharwood. Alchemy Bicycles can be found at: @alchemybicycles.Other T...

Ep: 40 - Igor Shteynbuk - Velo Orange

Modern Components With A Classic Aesthetic.A beautiful thing happens when avid cyclists draw from their experiences to create bicycle frames, components and accessories and Igor and Adrian of Velo Orange have not only done that, but they've knocked it out of the park. Velo Orange began in 2006 as a U.S. based importer of new old stock components from Europe, but once those supplies ran out they turned to manufacturers to create their own line of parts for the bicycles that they wanted to be riding.While probably best known for their fenders, racks and handlebars, the current line up of Velo Orange components features an impressively wide array of other parts as well, ranging from cranksets to headsets and from brakes to leather saddles, offering virtually everything you need for your build. In addition to the clean and classic polished silver finish, many parts are now being offered in a dark "noir" finish as well to suit the vision of your build.Velo Orange also carries a small fam...
