Blemishes, oh my!

As I prep frames, occasionally, I run across one that has been chipped or scratched in shipment from Taiwan. Bound to happen over such miles. My loss here is your gain! I have two Peregrines here in Medium that have chipped chainstays. One near the rear brake, one near the chainwheel/bottom braket area. Both are not totally noticable, and easily covered up with the right Testors match. Sale price on the Peregrines right now is $650. I'll be marking the blems at $625 permanently, or until sold. They come as frame fork and eccentric.

You can see, they're not bad, but I still can't sell them at full retail. $100 off should do it, eh?

2nd annual Singular Autumn Sale!

Its that time of year again. The weather is perfect, and getting out to ride is high, very high on the list of things to do.

The sale is on frames I have in stock, or coming into stock. That would be Peregrines, and Swifts. I have all sizes of Peregrines ready to go, and Large and Xlarge Swifts here. I have Mediums and a few more Larges coming in early October. If you're of Medium stature, I'll be happy to take a $200 deposit and reserve a frame for you! Last year Mediums sold out quicker than I though they would, so I've ordered rather heavy on them this time. They are coming with a slightly shorter fork, and hipped chainstays for even better mud clearance.

Oh. You want the price too? Kind of an important item there, eh?

Peregrines are on sale for $650.
Swifts are on sale for $525.

With that price, you get the frame, fork, eccentric, headbadge and prep. I've even sold a few Swifts with out forks for those of you who know you're going straight to a suspension fork. I'll take $80 off the price tag if you'd like the frame that way.


In other news, the Singular demo fleet has been out and about! Last weekend we were up at GnomeFest 7 held at the Levis Trow Trail system. Was nice to know that at one point, all eight bikes were out on the trails!

Next up on the list is the Brown County Breakdown near Bloomington IN. If you're in that neck of the woods, and would like to try out either 29" wheels, drop bars, or single speeds, look for me! I'll be happy to get you set up with a ride.

There's been rumblings of having one in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area this fall yet too! Not sure if I'll do Lebanon or Murphy yet. Locals chime in!

Speaking of GnomeFest, here's a nice slide show to check out. This has become one of the premiere events to attend in the Midwest mountain bike scene. The trails at Levis Trow are awesome, and the group of folks that show up are top notch. It draws folks from IA, MN, WI, NE, IL and occasionally MI.
