Undefeated in Minnesota CX scene, Eric has had some great results at UCI C1 and C2 events as well! Check out Heather Angel’s great pictures at the races (look for Eric’s hi-viz neon yellow kit).

Rob’s Mountain Bike Build
Tight miters make for strong joints.
After some black magic, the carbon is laid, cured, and gently sanded.

Custom black on black Appleman bar tape is available for $25. Now available in the Appleman Store. Free bar tape is included with all new bike purchases!
Rob’s Road Bike
Yes, the same Rob as above. Rob will have a full fleet of Appleman custom frames… road, mountain, and soon a gravel bike! Rob sent this hot pic of his bike all built up with beautiful mango accent parts!
