Turkeys, trails and teeshirts

I think we've finally eaten all the Thanksgiving leftovers, we even had parsnips. But almost importantly I headed out for turkey day ride on the Gypsy, on the trails, with a beer. Granted I didn't need the full frame bag but the Alpkit toptube bag kept my beer cool on another toasty November day.

Also we've finally received t-shirts and we've got both Stone Blue and Heather Grey in stock in all sizes. Hey, they're good for Christmas maybe pick one up with a Widefoot design Liter Cage - Also in stock, hintety hint.

Teeshirts in stock finally!

Lastly, if you're interested in a trip to Baja, Mexico we're planning a special semi supported Bikepacking trip, in the spring of next year - some great trails, awesome adventures with some fun people. If you'd like some details send me an email to

Happy trails


We're in the press!!!

Whats that they say? there's no such thing as bad press? OK, well occasionally bad press can be an issue, but over the last couple of weeks Penhale has had a couple of write ups in the media - and (as we like to say up north) It's not bad is it!

First we had a great write up by Gregg Kato at and then today some positive words from Tyler over at, both on the company and my prototype Gypsy Adventure touring frame that I brought with me to Sea Otter - take a read and I'd love to hear your comments! 

And we're off and rolling...


So it's been almost 2 years since I started working on Penhale, but now we're rolling. There have been challenges along the way that I won't bore you with, needless to say I'm happy to say that the first frames are on order and we hope to ship the first of the Gypsy models in early April. 

If you're interested in one of our frames, click on the "Pre-Order" button on the relevant frame model page in the shop and we'll get back to you on delivery ASAP.

In the mean time, keep up to date on our Facebook page, here on this blog and have a read of our adventures where our first story will be a 3 part story from a trip we took a little over a year ago.

Time for coffee, cheers
