After a whirlwind trip north, we picked up the bikes in Oakland yesterday. The left photo is of our bikes with Daniel Molloy, the owner of Tumbleweed Bicycle Company.


  1. Great spec! I should get those handlebars for my bike.

    • We originally asked for Jones Loop bars but they were out of stock. These have the same basic geometry, and are apparently lighter. I like how we have a nice upright riding position on the bikes.

  2. Looking good, not a bad way to travel. I love biking around my town and the area in Cuba. Many discoveries to be made every day while biking. Hope you guys enjoy it. I guess you’ll have to get your land legs now. lol

  3. I never would have guessed there are so many choices in constructing a bicycle! How has which color?

  4. Hi- Awesome bikes!
    Just wondering what rear cargo racks those are?
