I like the lighter backgrounds, although the bikes are beautiful in both. Perhaps something in between would be the ticket. That 29'er is especially nice.

Firefly #000

This is FF000, the first bike we made. (Photo circa one year ago)



Last year we completed it the on March 4th, and the very next day our very own Kevin Wolfson (our lead frame designer) started the 5-day, Tim Johnson's Ride On Washington from Boston to DC.

We're a little more prepared this year and have it refinished and ready to go two weeks before this year's Ride On Washington.

This is a pic of Kevin polishing it in his fancy shirt:



The ride raises money for Bikes Belong.

This is the bike refinished. (Photo circa about half an hour ago... platinum backdrop)





Like last year, we're donating a frameset to the ride's raffle. Every $50 donated goes straight to Bikes Belong and gives you a chance to win a custom Firefly, like this one.

Repeat: Each $50 donation gives you 1 chance to win a Firefly custom titanium frame... just for you. (i.e. $100 gets you 2 chances)

For anyone interested, you can donate here: https://www.pledgereg.com/27064.

Cheers!

Tyler

Tyler,

You know I love you to death man and I have so much love for you as well as your abilities.

I am so glad you, Kevin, and Jamie have done so well, worked so hard, and continue to do so.

I sure hope it doesn't come out patronizing, but I am very proud of what you three have done! I truly hope you all continue to be successful and come up with crazy new ideas.

Mad love man

Dave

Not patronizing at all. It means a lot coming from you Dave. Congrats on the new baby. Hope he turns out as great as you.

I am think a geared 29er. I have held off on mtb'ing since I have been in JAx due to a lack of trails and mountains. But now I am so close to great trails that are just out of my comfort zone on my cross bike

Ryun,
Go with a PF30 and you can use one of the new ebb units if you want to go SS or go geared. Their rear dropouts are pure sex.
