Amazing first results from this great little printer! Having pulled my hair out with the @3dsystems #cubepro (£1340) and wanted something with the @ultimaker build volume (330x240x300 @£6114!) this £360! Pinter has created one of the nicest prints I’ve ever managed and has a build volume of 300x300x400!! Time will tell if it’s consistent but I’m very excited. #creality .
The Queen is dead. Long live the Queen.
My Cutthroat had an ignominious death Sunday evening, taking a fall after bouncing out of a shitty Kuat hitch rack on the Pennsylvania Turnpike. I grumbled about that rack design before we even used it that weekend (a friend borrowed it from a friend) but i never expected it to let such a bad thing happen...I almost wish I had given her a proper end on the countless jumps, ramps and skids I put her through during GRiT camp shenanigans.
Needless to say, that bike is fantastic and i was seriously depressed at not having my beloved escape vehicle. I immediately (I'm talking 10min after the incident once I got past the most numbing sadness over an inanimate object...) found the only other 2017 Rival 22 build for sale on the internet.
I picked the new Cutthroat up tonight and feel slightly more whole. I'm still gutted over the stupidity of the incident and jeebus, the amount of money that flies out of my wallet when it comes to bikes. (spoiler alert: picking up a new gravel bike tomorrow... 🤷 )
The new Cutthroat is one size larger (from small to medium), which was a big mental debate I had when i bought my original. The old frame really doesnt look terrible, but with a nice chunk out of the top tube, grinding on the chainstay, wrecked bars and levers, and some ugly grinding on the headtube, I dont feel comfortable putting the same stress on the frame that I normally would happily do on that bike. I love carbon fiber frames, but at the same time, they kind of terrify me.
My current thought is to strip some bits off of the old girl and turn her into a SS cross bike. We shall see..

Literally the first wheelie on the newly built H-D Roadster! I’ve built and ridden many sportsters but this one is like none before it. An already nimble bike in its OEM form paired with top-shelf parts from some of the best in the business. After riding it for only a few minutes I could already tell every aspect of its performance and handling are even better. I have the dream but couldn’t do it without all the amazing people and manufacturers that support me. Gonna be some good times on this hog! 🤘
I plan to create another #zebrawood track bike soon and I’d like to have the saddle slide to different heights.
Scroll to see how I’ve fixed this @bricklanebikes saddle using half of alloy tube and a saddle clip!
I dont want to use a seat tube because it’s making the wooden frame too large. I’m after a streamline look!
I’m thinking a carbon sleeve that forms around the seat shaft and fixes tight by standard hex-head fixing🧐🧐 Any cyclist/engineer who have some ideas I’d love to hear them.
The Denver team recently participated in their second annual Bike Build with Wish for Wheels, an amazing non-profit that organizes team bike builds with companies who fund, build, and deliver bikes to kids in low-income communities!
