j_ryde The origins of my love for a quality ride. Going all the way back to March, 1982 apparently. #tbt 2d
  •   j_ryde Sneaker game was strong then too. Still is. 2d
  •   ryderd I just wonder if this date may be wrong. You look older than 7 months here... 2d
  •   j_ryde @ryderd yeah maybe that last digit is off. 2d

j_ryde My #Retrofiet got a disc brake upgrade this afternoon. Stoked (and I'm sure my dog Juniper will be too)! 5d

j_ryde Home sweet handmade glass and steel bed. Furniture is better when it doesn't come from a cardboard box. Design, fabrication, cast glass, and finish all done by me. (Photo by @dabe_alan) 1w

j_ryde A #tbt picture of a tiny tallbike I made years ago when I was living in Seattle. Some time later a friend rode it around Reed College campus for a while. Now who knows where it is?
________
Classic tallbike design: girls frame on top, boys on bottom, and pedals on top. Fully TIG welded. Tons of fun.

j_ryde I once said I would never make more than one set of these fire fans... The problem with "never" is it's a really fucking long time. Just finished the second set. Wolf paw knuckles, solid stainless steel... Now all they need is for me to wrap them and we burn this mother down. 2w

j_ryde Bike nerd post: Due to some serious design oversights (flaws) the sweet new Whiskey thru-axle carbon fork on my bike lacks any way to mount a fender (and barely has clearance for one anyway). I live in Portland... No fenders is not an option. Don't worry though, I handled it. :) 2w
  •   j_ryde @velogirl5 I think that's the real issue here. 2w
  •   _meat_ You know how to mix resin #handlaidcarbon 2w
  •   j_ryde True @_meat_ but it's just usually to get high... 2w
  •   scizors I'm too fat to trust a plastic bike. I'll stoop to aluminum, love my old schwinn homegrown. 2w
  •   j_ryde @scizors my girlish figure gives me confidence enough to jump a plastic bike. Or maybe that's the resin I've been huffing... 2w
  •   vanwhistlestein Why did you order a fork that didn't match your needs? 1w
  •   j_ryde @vanwhistlestein some bicycles come complete. That means the manufacturer specifies the parts list before it ever reaches the consumer. This is one such bike. AKA not a custom build. 1w
  •   vanwhistlestein @j_ryde understood! 1w

j_ryde Big things in little packages. Made this guy over a year ago and some company just recently announced that THEY just created the first kid's cargobike. Ha! Clearly they've never been to Portland... 2w

j_ryde Another one of my recent sculptural explorations. "Burl 4". Very pleased with how morbidly intriguing this piece turned out. All materials were found in nature, not procured by any other means. 3w
  •   heartofglass08 I may want one of these if you are selling them. We should talk. 3w
  •   j_ryde @heartofglass08 I'm going to be doing a little more work with them and finishing off the series (one more to make) and then yes they'll be for sale. Let me know which you're interested in and I'm sure we can work something out. (And thank you, your interest is a compliment) 3w
  •   heartofglass08 Cool, I'm interested in seeing the final one. Currently I am gravitating towards this one or the forward facing one. Thank you for making amazing things! 3w

j_ryde Obligatory "New Bike Day" photo. I traded in my trusty old Cannondale for this. Welcome to the world of disc brake, thru-axle, carbon road bikes. 3w
  •   bikeportland nice. thresher? 3w
  •   j_ryde It's the Riveter @bikeportland . Little tighter geometry, tucked in rear brake... First ride on it today was very satisfying. 3w
  •   j_ryde @ridehifi you guys have a thru-axle disc brake wheelset offering yet? 3w
  •   runfoster Can't quite tell from the photo - are all those cables run inside the frame or outside through guides? Love how simple and clean the lines are! 3w
  •   j_ryde Yeah @runfoster most of the cabling is internally routed. Makes it more "aero". Also makes it more rattly but whatevs. 3w
  •   reverend_dick Dig the Brooks topper. 3w
  •   ridehifi @j_ryde of course! All of our disc brake wheels come with end caps, front and rear, for thru axle conversion :). Hit me up for any clincher/tubeless/or tubular needs! Info@ridehifi.com 3w

j_ryde Regram from @gideonststudios. A custom cast-glass and hand-finished steel headboard I made. 1-1/8" thick glass panels made by me and inlaid in a steel frame I fabricated and applied patina to. 3w
