the velo orange x tarck llc business venture thread


#21

I’m really just crossing my fingers for a “butttrouble brown” Troll revamp. Maybe the VO contribution could be a threaded fork. 1-1/4, of course.


#22

Velo Orange makes things? I thought they were just picking shit out of manufacturers’ catalogs?

How about a reasonably priced decaleur in the Ocean Air Cycles style that works with ortlieb hardware?


#25

I’m doing a bikepacking trip with surly folk this autumn, tell me your wants and I’ll relay them.

Spoiler alert: they’ll be drunk and none of the ideas will make it through, but everyone I’ve met is pretty rad and enjoyable.


#26

I had a whole stretch of them
I can’t remember but stretchmark pink is pretty ok

Dang I go to sleep and this happens.

650b x 58mm Wavy fenders are in production. Should be here within a month.

Remove all teeth. No need to brush.

1" low trail disc threadless with dynamo routing. What bike? It would be a mullet of disc and rim.

Actually the olive oil soap is surprisingly popular when we can get it. I don’t have anything to hatchet and I don’t wear flannel.

Cause y’all picky.

Use our rack and the Surly Rack Adaptor hardware. It works really well.

I got out of the toaster game after…the accident. Although Oster is pretty good.

They’re paint name game is strong.

Most of our stuff is custom to us. But I don’t think there’s anything wrong with saying, “oh damn, someone already makes exactly what we wanted to design.”

We’re working on a better decaleur. Takes time.

You’re at the top of the list.

Yeah basically this. I’d put one on my Alpina Uno in a second. Not concerned with it being a mullet, because the rear brakes hardly matter.

I want that disc brake - porteur rack - lowtrailbro life.

Basically this:

but with a 1" threadless hunter/gatherer fork.


#37

Yeah, that;s the fork i want for our tandem too.


#38

vintage MTB -> sw8 basketbike is one good use case for a 1" lowtrail jobber

whippy '80s Trek roadbike -> front loading rando chariot is another
