Chris King Open House October 14th.

https://www.facebook.com/events/1966340656917396/

Join us for our annual Open House and Builder Showcase! We'll have food and drinks, and a plethora of custom bikes on hand. We are also offering the chance to see where our parts are made on a rarely offered shop floor tour.

Allied, Argonaut, Breadwinner, Caletti, Crema, DeSalvo, Moots, and Seven will all be showing bikes made custom for this showcase. We'll also have ENVE composites and Santa Cruz showing off some very special bikes from our sponsored riders.

We hope you'll come by and raise a glass with us.


So, who else is thinking about going? Group ride before/after?

Yes, it was really well attended and the candy on display was outstanding - I think there's an Instagram #chriskingopenhouse but I don't do that..

I only grabbed a couple pics:









The Allied frameset was stunning, but there were too many people hovering to get a pic...and I was itching to go ride more...

Oh wow, the new pink stuff looks great. Much better than the previous shade/look.

Thanks for the pics. I was hoping to go. Wanted to do the Breadwinner ride before hand too. I had to get to work on refinishing our bathroom floor though. Didn't want to go to long without a toilet in the house...

Just noticed that DeSalvo is up for sale on his home page:
"Up for grabs! The bike I built for #chriskingopenhouse needs a home. This is the first of my Builders Special disc road bikes that will take tires up to a 32c. Regular price with the Chris King upgrade package would be $4650 but this 55cm complete bike is just $3650. This is a perfect size for a rider in the 5’6” - 5’9” range. Contact me directly for more info."

I can not even convey how beautiful that bike was in person - if it fits anyone here, buy it!!!
