I'm not sure why they're commuting up to the top of a mountain (Mt. Baker/Artist's Point I think), but I enjoyed the photos nevertheless.

Sorry, no experience with the brand although I hear the name a lot.

I dunno

I wouldn't trust a Traitor.

Might be kind of tasty though.

I only test-rode one once and just for a brief ride, so I can't really commemt on the quality of the ride. But, considering that the company is HQ'd just a couple of miles away from Bellingham (where I then lived), I always thought it odd how few Traitors I saw on the road. FWIW, probably not much.

Thinking it may make a nice wifey version of my Propad Disc. Just need to get another set of calipers... got every thing else, except maybe some narrow-ish bars...

Grabbed the frameset, he tossed in a headset and it still has some nice fenders. Got it home and popped on some wheels, bars/stem seatpost/seat and got Elaine astride. Stuck a closet pole/dowel through the BB so she could pick up her feet. ;)

Looks like a Bingo!


She did not care for the choice of seat I grabbed. ;) Concor, not exactly novice freindly. ;O

Nicely made, welds very good looking and consistent. Brake cable for the rear caliper routes through the chainstay, star braze on water bottle lugs, just looks nice overall.

I think this is going to be a nice ride.

Here is a pic from the ad when he had it built.
