Amid our 2017 line-up is a special limited edition run of our Weekender Archer. We teamed up with our friends over at Biltwell to bring you guys just 100 of these classically styled two-wheeled vessels.

When given the opportunity to build my own custom Pearl White Parser I choose the parts below. I envisioned a bike that would be ideal for off road adventures and ready for some light cargo if I was to install a front rack and/or a rear Adjust-A-Rack. I’ve taken this bike out for weekend rides around Bonelli Park in La Verne, CA and also to Griffith Park in Los Angeles. The Parser feels solid and responsive carving around the bends and the dirt/gravel that you can come across near the Hollywood sign. The 700×35 Ritchey Shield Cross tires are just wide enough for my comfort and they can handle sharp turns with ease. My favorite feeling was the downhill coast through the fire trails over to the backside of Griffith Park. This complete bike weighs 20 lbs which allowed me to catch some air when rolling through the dips in the woods. The Phil Wood hubs, DT Swiss spokes and H Plus Son rims complement each other well, allowing for a complete wheel set that is very sturdy and durable. I wanted this Parser to be reliable and enjoyable for riding trails here in California. The gear ratio I choose was a 48 tooth front chain-ring and 18 tooth rear freewheel. The goal with this build was to have an easy/fun/comfortable ride, and that has definitely been achieved. The build was finished off with proven and dependable components from Ritchey and SRAM.
In general, The Parser is a single-speed warrior that’s very tough. I would totally race CX on this bad ass machine. I hope you like what you see! It was a blast customizing and building my own Pearl White Parser.
We’re really pleased to “officially” announce the Fairdale Roger bike. This collector’s edition is only available in super limited quantities.
This bike is special to us because we got to build it with our buddies at Roger Skateboards. This special package comes complete with a skateboard. One of our most favorite artists Roger’s Michael Sieben did all the graphics for both the bike and matching board.
