New PNT Magazine May 27, 2014
Our friends from Poland, PNT, have just released a new issue of their online mag. There’s some great photography and a few Weekender shots. Really stoked on what these folks are doing. Well worth checking out:
Leif Valin – Mint Weekender April 25, 2014
Leif shows off his Weekender Frame set he built up. The Weekender is turning out be a pretty adaptable platform. With front and rear rack mounts you could sling some racks on here and be off for a weekend camping trip, or carrying bags to school each day. Pop on some fenders and you have a fun way to get to work. The disc brakes will work in any weather condition you come across and the comfortable frame can handle a good range of riding styles.
FYI, Leif is 6’2 and this is a XL Weekender frame with parts to properly size it to him.
What a night with the rain, but waking up to one hell of a view is a great way to start the day. I took some time to enjoy the desolate road, and to marvel at the landscape and the open ocean stretching as far as the eye could see. From here I made my way towards Honolua Bay.
Adventure In A BOX: Day 4 Paia to North of Honolua Bay April 11, 2014
After hiding from the rain for the night, I awoke to stormy clouds but it wasn’t raining! I looked at some NOAA weather models for the day, and it looked like I was going to get wet. Most likely really wet. So I bought some zip lock bags as extra insurance that all my gear would stay dry and after a couple quick stops got back on the road.
Adventure In A Box: Day 3 Kaupo to outside Paia April 10, 2014

Adventure in a box: Day 2 Hana to Kaupo April 9, 2014
We took a quick cruise to Wainapanapa state park and I went for an early morning ocean swim out to a sea stack, which I could climb up the chossy volcanic rock to reach the top before jumping into the ocean below. A great way to start the day, and even better after we went for another swim in the freshwater caves close by.
Adventure In a Box: Day 0 Essential Bike Touring Gear (bow n’ arrow, chess board, ect..) April 8, 2014
We’re very pleased to bring you a new Field Trip installment from beautiful Maui. We sent Ryan Worcester a Weekender and he will be taking us along on his adventure around the island. He’ll be handling both the typing and camera work. We would be stoked if you read this and got inspired to buy a Fairdale, but to be entirely honest, we’d be even happier if we inspired you to get out there and take your own adventure. Ryan is a master of making do with what’s available and he’ll show us all how to travel without the stress of overthinking and over planning. Read on and enjoy the amazing images…
Adventure In a Box by Ryan Worcester
Everything starts somewhere, especially something that in hindsight you’d call an adventure. This particular journey started with a box. Two of them to be exact. The first one came in the form of a cardboard box (with the graphic of an animal that had the desire to say something important). Inside this box from Fairdale was a drop bar Weekender, and coupled with it came an opportunity to spend five days pedaling around Maui, Hawaii. An endeavor like this requires some supplies, hence the second box. Read More

Weekender Review from Footdown.co.uk November 11, 2013
The Foot Down put up a great review of the Weekender OG. If we can say anything about our bikes we’d like it to sound a bit like this: “This bike made my summer, I went places I never could have gone on my other bikes. In a single day I have taken it shopping with the rack on, commuted to work, cruised along the sea front and taken it into the wilds of Gower loaded up with camping gear. It’s a bike that does it all provided you don’t want to race, though you can drop a kid on an estate easily, little buggers.”
