As we’re up here in San Francisco for the week, I decided it was about time that I check out the Rapha Cycle Club this morning. I hobbled in past the stoic John wearing one of our mate Jeff Trasher’s ‘Intelligentsia … Continue reading →
The fine fellas at AETHER APPAREL periodically produce a series of videos that showcases individuals and companies that inspire them, called AETHERfocus.
Their latest focus is on one of my fav’ folk, portlandian, crusher of climbs, carbon guru, and all round diamond geezer, Ben Farver of Argonaut Cycles. This is the man who will more than likely create the next exquisite road bike in my collection.
Designed and manufactured entirely in the Pacific Northwest, Ben Farver of Argonaut Cycles offers truly custom-built carbon frames. Each of their bikes are handcrafted using an innovative construction process for a completely tailored riding experience. With more than 30 years of industry leading composite experience behind their team, Argonaut Cycles is driven by a true passion for the sport of cycling. They strive to make the best, because they want to ride the best.

Today is Small Business Saturday; as a small business owner myself I understand the importance that our local community plays in our continued growth, and thus the quality of my life. Quality of life is a big thing in my world, it’s one of the reasons I’ve been a life-long cyclist. Many of my favourite people, and best friends are bicycle nuts, and we all tend to gravitate towards one another, creating our own extended community, and every cycle community has a hub. For us that hub just happens to be one of the best bike shops in the world, owned and run by some of the best blokes I know, Woody, Ty and Kyle of GOLDEN SADDLE CYCLERY.
If you live in LA and have never visited the store, today may be the day to change that, the lads are offering 20% off ANYTHING that they currently have in stock!
SUPPORT LOCAL BUSINESSES. SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL BIKE SHOP!
