Oregon Manifest

The Oregon Manifest presents bicycle frame builders with the challenge of designing the best utility bicycle. These designs range from large cargo bikes that carry heavy loads to lighter bikes suited for the challenges of urban commuting.

Our frame-building friend, Renold Yip, of YiPsan Bicycles, has submitted this offering (above). Some of you may recognize it as a sister bike to Danielle's award-winning Sunflower bike. As always Renold's bike is an impressive machine. Some highlights on this one include the integrated cable lock and the custom chain guard.

Good luck Renold!

The Bicycle Escape

Tuesday, September 20, 2011


2 1/2 months before we bid this fine shopping center adieu some little punk decides to smash in our window.   Thanks to some kind street sweepers the guy was scared off very quickly and left the scene before he/she stole anything (that I can tell anyway). The police were fast to respond and great to deal with. At the end of the day we were left with a mess and sleepless night. It could be worse.
