We were offered the opportunity to make a bike for an amazing athlete in her quest to raise awareness and funds for the National Kidney Foundation. You can find more information about the event by visiting the events Facebook Page.
Tallerico Cycles is building a custom track bike for Thursday to use during the event. After the event it's being auctioned off!
More photos can be seen here.
We knew that for the NAHBS we wanted to produce some normal bikes. Introducing the Rully Figid for use off the grid. Price is the proud owner of this unique 22.5 pound off road machine. SRAM XO1-Eagle, Whisky carbon parts and American Classic wheels compliment this Columbus steel frame mountain bike.
What makes this so special? These 27.5+ wheels equal a 29 stance, so you can actually run traditional 29er wheels or even switch the rear dropout and make this into a single speed. 3 bikes in one!
Available soon via the Tallerico Cycles store with options including carbon hoops and Fox suspension
There is the final product. The PENNY. The Original Gravel bike, despite being denied entry into that competition... It's available and will include the trophy, a color photo book of the project and original drawings. Since we had no blueprint and couldn't really compare it to something we had kicking around you'll see transformations along the way. Own this piece of 2017 history, ride it or put it in your window. It's about pride and engineering. Made mostly of materials left over from other projects this truly unique and one of a kind Penny is looking for a forever home!
We set out to NAHBS with one major objective. Bring something that's never been shown before. Let us introduce the Penny-Farthing. 100% handmade frame and fork. We modernized the look slightly and as you can see. The backbone is composed of 8 individual vertebrate plus a support for the head tube structure. This beauty is one of a kind never to be replicated again. It's build around a 50 inch front wheel, 17 inch rear... to say it's tall is an understatement. Sourcing a wheel so large was a project in itself without even thinking about how to build a wheel of this nature, custom truing stand adaptors and 5 cross lacing. More photos will be added today.
This unique creation is available for purchase, please inquire. The buyer will receive the bicycle plus original drawing and a small book with some of the photo's below about the creation of this masterpiece.
We are super busy building all of our show bikes. Some are available to purchase and some are already sold. If you're looking for the best deal on a custom Tallerico now is the time!
If you're headed to Salt Lake City in March swing by the Salt Palace on the 10th, 11th or 12th and check us out. We will have some frames and bicycles to show off plus one unique creation that we are hoping will be the awe of the show!
A lot of times people take things for granted. To be honest I've been in this industry and building frames a long time. I can tell you for me that is natural and easy. This whole internet sensation has me at a disadvantage! That all said here we are launching this website and getting into the current century. On this page you'll see updates of projects happening in the now. I hope you enjoy the site, ride your bike and think about a handmade made Tallerico in the near future!
