    Fred, it looks great. The rear rack is super slick.

    When are you going into production? I'll take one just like yours. 72.5 seat angle, please. Can I get my racks painted neon?

    Nice! Were you the poster boy for this legislative enactment?

    RCW 46.61.790

    Intoxicated bicyclists.

    (1) A law enforcement officer may offer to transport a bicycle rider who appears to be under the influence of alcohol or any drug and who is walking or moving along or within the right-of-way of a public roadway, unless the bicycle rider is to be taken into protective custody under RCW 70.96A.120. The law enforcement officer offering to transport an intoxicated bicycle rider under this section shall:

    (a) Transport the intoxicated bicycle rider to a safe place; or

    (b) Release the intoxicated bicycle rider to a competent person.

    (2) The law enforcement officer shall not provide the assistance offered if the bicycle rider refuses to accept it. No suit or action may be commenced or prosecuted against the law enforcement officer, law enforcement agency, the state of Washington, or any political subdivision of the state for any act resulting from the refusal of the bicycle rider to accept this assistance.

    (3) The law enforcement officer may impound the bicycle operated by an intoxicated bicycle rider if the officer determines that impoundment is necessary to reduce a threat to public safety, and there are no reasonable alternatives to impoundment. The bicyclist will be given a written notice of when and where the impounded bicycle may be reclaimed. The bicycle may be reclaimed by the bicycle rider when the bicycle rider no longer appears to be intoxicated, or by an individual who can establish ownership of the bicycle. The bicycle must be returned without payment of a fee. If the bicycle is not reclaimed within thirty days, it will be subject to sale or disposal consistent with agency procedures.

    Fred - Andy has a point. A limited Box Dog style run of these would probably sell fast. I know there are a lot of points that need to be met between a good concept and making money selling to the public. Certainly worth pondering if the interest is there.

    700C and not low trail, but there's already a box dog style (i.e. builder / shop collab) Elephant out there, speak to Ride Endpoint and voice your desire for a fredmobile model:

    I've been working on how to make a small-production version with similar ride quality, but that doesn't compete with a traditional custom in form or cost

    investigated a possibility toward that end while camping and mountain biking on Whidbey Island over the weekend:





    broke my rear fender getting rad the previous weekend at the seatstay bridge and reattached it further forward

    I know I made fun of Kristofer's bobbed fender thing but it does look cool for now

    sounds like a Rawland rSogn.... just need to convince Sean to have another batch made. Maybe with discs and a l/w OS tubeset.

    Bring it on... Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
    Fred will whine about my quill stem and canvas bag I'm sure.

    And the Brooks. And the bar end shifters. And the height of the handlebars...

    If it was a Cambium, Fred probably would be a little happier. But it isn't.

    It's interesting for its first truly new Brooks saddle design since the takeover, Selle came up with something quite apart from Brooks tradition.

    Blasdeif, this bike and the adventures it must facilitate give me the night sweats.

    I just did my first 600k on my surly with a swift ozette rando bag and revelate seat bag, which was the perfect amount of storage for a self-supported ride. Overall, the bike handled great, smooth, climbed fine -- only a little wandering at slow speeds, no shimmy at 45+ mph on long descents, but I did notice that my arms were tired on day 2. I may be wrong, but I attributed it to the moderate front load on the front-end of a cx bike. Does "low-trail" help with upper body stamina over multiple days? How does the handling change with increased weight, such as loading up the pelican bag vs the rando bag?
