My introduction: Custom bikes (Landshark, Mosaic, Speedvagen, Toyo Frame Co...)

Hey all!

I am a long-time lurker (since 2014), dreaded zero-poster. I do regularly lurk the classifieds and have interacted with many of you over the years. Never got around to posting elsewhere.

I wasn't sure how to post an introductory thread, but this seems fitting. Wanted to show off a couple of my custom bikes over the years.


Speedvagen Canti Cross. Custom geo, paint by SV.


Landshark Roadshark: I need to find some better pics of this thing. Sold to a friend... was just too small for me




Mosaic Canti Cross - Custom paint with matching fork, stem, post. Sold to a friend, hoping to buy it back soon.

My two Toyo Frame Co. fixies. Marketed and sold through Euro Asia Imports as the "Bareknuckle" (1-1/8" HT) and "Godzilla" (1" HT). These are production bikes but both have custom forks that I had a friend make for me - that counts, right????

These are the steepest and shortest production bikes out there, they're a blast to ride and are what led me to fall in love with cycling. I will be keeping both of these forever.

75 degree HTA on all sizes, very short wheelbase, and almost no bottom bracket drop.

Bareknuckle is set up as a roadie, bottle cage bosses added, clipless pedals, etc etc. This has been up Mt. Lemmon hundreds of times, I have ~8,000 miles on it. Fork custom made to match factory axle-to-crown length, rake with a flat crown, 1-1/8" steer tube, custom dropouts, clearance for 28's.



Godzilla is my "townie" bike. I've had it 10 years, rode it to all my college classes, did all my errands, post office, grocery runs (didn't have a car for many years). Most used bike, but no idea the mileage as I didn't strava my errands like an asshole. Also has custom fork with flat crown, custom chopped up and modified soma pizza rack recently added.

and lastly, my favorite and/or current production bikes.

Trek Boone Canti with custom paint. Sold to a friend. LOVED this bike.



Tarmac SL6 Acid Rain. Recently sold.


Stumpjumper LT Ohlins build. Purple.


2020 Crux Disc. My current go-to. First venture into disc aside from MTB's. I still prefer rim brakes.



Ritchey Outback Camo - Limited Edition. Will be for sale soon ;-)

Welcome , I really like the song “all caps” . Will you be rapping about bicycles anytime soon? Do you ride with the mask on?
