Not your dad’s indoor training

October 29th, 2018 by / In Apparel and Gear

I’m no expert when it comes to training on a bike or indoors, but I do both. In Montana, for a lot of the year, riding indoors is the only option unless you are really hard-core. For years, I just blew off the winter and did a little running, Nordic skiing, fat biking, or, more […]

“Simplicity is not the absence of clutter”

October 21st, 2018 by / In Tech Engineering meeting

By: Jeff Wyatt – Pinion Engineering   My first meeting with Carl was technical discussions, angles, lengths, diameters, widths – a lot of detailed sketching – discussion. However, it was what was unsaid that could be heard clearly that day from all – the frame was to be on the traditional side of the aesthetic. […]

Red Kite Ronde et Vous

October 21st, 2018 by / In Experience

This past few days were pretty stellar for the crew at Pursuit Cycles. Jared flew in from New York and we had a great few days in Bozeman working on graphics and paint for our 2019 offerings, and making some improvements to our processes. We’re all really excited for the coming years offerings.   After […]

Small Companies and QC

September 23rd, 2018 by / In Tech

Do you ever wonder how smaller companies ensure they are making safe bikes and/or implementing quality control?? In traditional custom frame shops we have historically relied on the craftsman’s attention to detail, and the use of quality materials to ensure a safe product. At Pursuit™ we work to close the loop between design and manufacturing which […]

Our Super Secret Tricoque™ Technology (SSTT)

April 4th, 2018 by / In Tech Tricoque

Because I just learned how to add the (™) I feel compelled to trademark something. Seems the industry likes to throw around the term “monocoque” quite a bit so I’m going to mix it up. At Pursuit we employ Tricoque™ technology. That’s two better than monocoque. I kid, but in all seriousness we do build […]

The ABD’s of Composite Laminates

April 2nd, 2018 by / In Tech

It has been a while, but don’t worry, my students have been giving me plenty of blank stares in the meantime.  Seriously, I am teaching a course this semester called Design of Machine Elements which I consider a key opportunity for students to bridge their engineering knowledge toward their upcoming professional career.  Given the course […]

Fibers That Play Together Stay Together

January 19th, 2018 by / In Tech

This is my 3rd installment of the four part series on carbon fiber composite materials. This one is on the matrix that holds it all together. Previous posts talked about making raw carbon, and how carbon is used in bicycle frames. And in the final installment of this 4 part series I will go all blue-sky wanderlust on […]

Why Made In The US

January 4th, 2018 by / In Made in Bozeman

If you’re a bike geek, you probably keep up with all the latest and greatest bikes. Do you remember  when they were all made by old craftsman in dusty old shops in Europe. DeRosa, Basso, Guerciotti, etc. At the time road bikes were steel and with the exception of some fillet brazed frames they were […]

Vive Le France

January 3rd, 2018 by / In Experience

When I was asked several years ago by a friend if I wanted to join him on a cycling trip to France with a group of his friends I didn’t have to think very hard about the decision. Bicycles are connectors. They connect us with our world in a more complete way than our cars, they connect us […]
