Family of Brodie’s

With the intention of riding dykes, trails and a little pavement, Carol had come to us looking for a new ride. With the unfortunate symptoms of osteoarthritis in her neck, she was looking for an upright bicycle with mountain tires and suspension to replace her Specialized Mountain Bike. With that, we had suggested her our Quantum, which fit all her needs perfectly. Impressed with the test ride and the recommendation of Brodie from her son-in-law (thank you!), she quickly returned to purchase her brand new ride!

…………………………………………………………………………….

“Hello Roger, today was Ms. Brodie’s first dyke ride, we did Mud Bay to Crescent Beach and back, 40 kms.  I just wanted to say “she is one fine ride”.  Normally on my Specialized I’d do 20kms – 23 kms/hr on flat terrain, today I was easily doing 26-28kms.  When I cycle it feels “like a hot knife slicing through butter”.  My gal friends test drove her and were definitely impressed.  They all said they had no idea Brodie made a bike like that.  My son-in-law and his friend ride Brodie mountain bikes and I like my friends, were amazed to find a Brodie suitable for city and pleasure riding.  Continue reading Family of Brodie’s…

Paul Brodie’s New Bicycle

After 15 years, Paul Brodie decided it was time to build himself a new bicycle for himself. Filet brazed steel welds, Rohloff internal gear hub, Hope disc brakes, 26″ wheels and a custom through axle hub, he’s built himself his very own “play” bike. Still figuring out the cable routing and what kind of guides he’s going to run, his one of a kind Brodie is almost complete!

Cyclopacking

In 3 weeks I will do the longest off-road ride I’ve ever attempted, 584 km in 3 days at the Oregon Outback, presented by VeloDirt.

My experience with bikepacking is rather limited. I race for Mighty Riders, CX and Road. I’ve ridden long days through Yellowstone national park with just a backpack of campgear, or something similar on the San Juan Islands when track bikes on long trips seemed like a good idea. However, it’s never been this much off-road, and never this far out of cellphone service. Continue reading Cyclopacking…
