#FairdaleFrance September 2, 2015

FRANCE

If you follow Fairdale on Instagram ( @fairdalebikes ) you might have noticed we were in France recently. 4 of us went over and rode a bunch of famous Tour de France climbs. The trip was truly mind blowing for all of us and we really want to tell you all about it. However, were in a bit of holding pattern right now as the story will be first published in Bicycling Magazine.  We’re holding back a lot of great photos, stories and video but it will all be available soon. For what it’s worth, plan a trip to the French Alps now… what an amazing place to ride bikes! There is a great selection of instagram photos from the riders that will give you a bit of taste here: #fairdalefrance

The Radavist reviews The Goodship August 4, 2015

The-Fairdale-Goodship-with-SRAM-Force-22-54-1335x890

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

FairdaleBadship_FaceComplete

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!

And thanks to BSS, SRAM, and Zipp for making the Badship reality.

PS I just mistyped “Badship” as “BARship”. Could be a new bar cruising model!!

Our man Sandy Carson has been out and about riding bikes with his crew, The Sativa Rollers, and shooting photos. He sent over a little report…

Two weekends ago, we rode the Bicycle Sport Shop Gravel Grinder. It’s a 50 mile ride on a jeep road through Rocky Hill Ranch and Buescher State Park. It was bloody freezing rain!

Here’s a coupla photos from that-

It was early autumn 2013 when the three of us decided to switch to bike touring. Bart and Dodo, avid fixie riders, were ready to move on to a different kind of biking (less taxing on the joints), I wanted to get out of the city and its immediate surroundings and start doing longer rides. Thus, an idea was born, a common goal which would see us debate, plan, map out, and finally set off on our first big journey. View More

Parser review from Cyclocross Magazine February 3, 2015

csmagparser

Cyclocross Magazine did a nice thorough review of our 2015 Parser for their issue 27. It’s worth a read even if your considering buying a Parser for more urban uses. Our Parser has morphed through the years into a tough urban single-speed that now is fairly adapted even to CX use. Thanks soooo much to Cyclocross Magazine and check the full review below OR, better yet check out the full issue on a news stand or digitally from the Cyclocross Magazine website.  View More
