Rawland getting picked up by local dealer?

JimG sent me a link today to the blog of Marin County-based Black Mountain Cycles:

"There were two booths at [Interbike] that had bikes I place in the category of "bikes-I-didn't-design-but-would-like-to-own." The first is the new Salsa Fargo. The second were the bikes from Rawland... Thinking about why I like the bikes from these two brands, I see that they both have something in common: fat tires and drop bars. The combination doesn't get any better."

I can't say that I disagree... want to read it all?

Morning at the gym

2.5 years into my Karate Monkey project, building a fat-tired, drop-barred bike bit by can-I-afford-this-on-my-grad-stipend bit, two awesome production bikes drop featuring exactly what I want. Oh well, I couldn't afford either of them, either.

Awesome ride, anyhow.

As far as I know, the Rawland isn't a production bike. We get them as framesets and build them up in different ways, sometimes with drop bars, sometimes not.
