It's a new year baby!

OK, resolution time. In the past, I've typically posted every 3rd or 4th bike here and it keeps coming back to bite me. Several times recently I've mentioned something I've built, the person asks me for a pic and all I can say is , "Ummm, didn't take any." Like the adjustable rake fork that just went to MA...doh!
So, the resolution? Try to overcome my dislike for self promotion and post everything!
Get ready, this is gonna be like a real blog!

Here's one that went to (cue Beastie Boys), Brooklyn....BROOKLYN over the holidays.
Not a mountain bike, a fixed gear specific 26"wheeled bulldozer!

Signature fork.

Handcut dropouts with stainless faces.

Oops, double pic for charge!

I loved this bike, but just like the last few, it's too small for me to keep.


  1. my order will have to go in next year...and yes I will help you self promote it...

  2. I love the rear dropouts!! The mix of the stainless face with the painted surface looks sick.

  3. Thanks guys....OK Dave, you're now the Matthews Cycles Marketing/Sales/PR department!

  4. Sweet bike. I dig 26"-wheeled bikes. Nice fork crown too. Very lovely. My buddy made a similar style for my daughter's bike.

  5. chauncey... i bought this frame a few months ago from my friend that brought it out to brooklyn and was wondering if you could answer some questions about it as i get into finishing off the build. couldn't find an email anywhere, but feel free to reach me at mikeley /at/ gmail. cheers!
