I built up a Weekender frame and fork set with some fancy parts. It’s a special treat to myself since I’m usually a riding a bike with an assortment of miss-mathced sample parts. I started with our Weekender frameset in Electro Silver (available now). View More

The Radavist reviews The Goodship August 4, 2015
John Watson shot this photo and some other great ones of our Goodship for Andre Chelliah’s review on The Radavist.
Check out the review that contains excellent consumer advice like this, “What would I change on the bike? Not a lot. At $2999.99, The Goodship might be the best complete steel road race bike available right now. I definitely feel that for the price point, you are getting the most bang for your buck.”
Thanks The Radavist! We really appreciate it!!
THE BADSHIP: Ridden & Reviewed July 14, 2015
Bicycle Sports Shop wrote up a review talking about our latest creation, The Badship. This one of a kind specially painted Goodship frame and fork also got a special part build (and so we named it the Badship). They had the pleasure of sailing around on this black beauty for about a week, and you can read about their experience by clicking HERE. It’s also full of great insight into our Goodship frame and fork too:
“…But the bike is also point and shoot. Aim the Goodship at a turn and counter steer a bit and the bike holds a line like it’s nobody’s business. At speed or cruising town, the Goodship capably does what’s asked of it when it comes to handling. And that holds true out at the Driveway Series as well. Hanson at the Lamar store has a Goodship that stepped on the podium a few weeks back. Not for nothing but he rolled away from a bevy of guys on the latest aero everything and just missed the win taking second. All aboard a Goodship.”
Check out the full review and keep in mind the Badship will be auctioned off for a charity Aug.1 so it could be yours!
PS I just mistyped “Badship” as “BARship”. Could be a new bar cruising model!!

We gave you guys a sneak peek of the Badship last week, and now we have a video showing you guys some of the hand-painting process and custom build that went into this one of a kind Fairdale Goodship.

PORCHTIME! June 8, 2015
Leif just built up a new Daybird!
A new model for 2015, the Daybird is our take on a legendary classic. This simple and easy to use 3-speed is available as a step-through (shown) or a Standard model. We didn’t make this bike to win races or jump off roofs, we made this bike so you could enjoy bike riding!
Ben rides the Fairdale Parser May 13, 2015
We find it extremely flattering when folks who work at bike shops choose to ride our bikes. Ben here works at our top dealer Bicycle Sport Shop in Austin, Texas and is cruising our 2014 Parser. We can’t thank BSS enough for all that they’ve done for us through the years, nor can we properly thank our hometown of Austin for all the support the city has given us. But we’ll give it a try… thanks to Ben, Bicycle Sport Shop, and all the other great dealers in Austin who have helped us so much! Cheers y’all!
