Two more days...

That's right, you have two more days (well three if you count the rest of today as one and then Tuesday and Wednesday) to take advantage of the free rubber deal with the purchase of a Black Mountain Cycles cross or road frameset. So far, there have been several takers for this February promotion and I'm happy they took advantage of the deal.

To reiterate, if you purchase a road frame, I'll throw in a set of Clement Strada LGG tires in 23, 25, or 28 sizes. These are not the budget 60 tpi version of this tire, but the high end model with 120 tpi. This is a $100 value folks. So far, everyone who has received this special have all opted for the 28s.

And not to leave out the cross bike, I'm including a set of Vee Rubber X-C-X or 12 tires with the purchase of the cross frame. The 12 is a 1.95 tire and the X-C-X is a 1.75 tire. Initial reports are that the X-C-X is a little "buzzy" on the road, but it's a fun tire on some hardpack. This is a $90 package value.

Even though, I say free tires with a frameset purchase, I'm also including these tires free with a bike purchase as well. As a little inspiration, here are two bike builds I finished this past weekend for a couple of guys who took advantage of the free rubber. Someone's going to be having fun riding their new bikes! It could be you next.

Cross bike that is heading to Texas that was built with a modified build #1: White Industries hubs, Salsa Delgado Cross rims, Avid Shorty Ultimate brakes. The silver wheels are very classy.

Next is a road bike with a slightly modified road build #2 that turned out really nice that is going to make its home in the Sonoma/Marin area.

Oh man, look at the headroom through the front brake caliper with 28s. PLENTY of fender room. I can't wait.

That Orange Road frame is beautiful and the IRD crank is way retro, I thought it might be an early 80's Stronglight at first, very cool.

how do you like the Shorty Ultimate brakes? My Hakkalugi has the Shorty 4's on it right now and I'm not that impressed...

Chris, I like them a lot. This sparked a thought for an upcoming blog post, but the Avids in the low profile setting offer good power and modulation. The new Shimano CX brakes have good potential as well. The Shorty 4 and 6 brakes are okay, but there's some better brakes out there depending on what you want from the brake.

thanks! I will using the bike for the next three years (after this summer) riding gravel roads and trails in Kodiak Alaska... hopefully after that some actual cross racing... :D
