Mason Dixon Roller Vixens Victorious

The Bicycle Escape sponsored the Mason-Dixon Roller Vixens this year and I am proud to announce that they were victorious in Saturday's bout against Virginia's Mother State Roller Derby. Both teams played a good clean game with the final score 173 to 155. On a special note a lovely lady who happens to be one of the owners of Ye' Olde TBE was awarded the MVP unicorn trophy in her debut bout! Congratulations Danielle aka Babyface Bandit!

QBall with Fat Fork

This bike was an absolute joy to work on. It is high function and high style just like I like it.
The segmented fork was built by Andrew Watson and features Cherry wood caps on the top of the fork. Arne let me play a bit with the aesthetics so I surprised him with a cherry top cap and bar plugs that I turned in our off site machine shop (aka granddad's garage). The QBall frame was made by Scott Quiring of Quiring Cycles.

Enjoy Arne!
