Boulder Bicycle Lugged

Late March 2011 Update and Boulder Bicycle Photos

Its been very busy at Rene Herse Bicycles this month. A few customers took delivery of their bikes over the past couple of weeks. A very special bike is the lugged (built by Waterford) Boulder Bicycle shown here. We had fun with the paint - our classic light blue with white panels. But even more fun - we had the wizzard who letters our Rene Herse frames hand-paint the graphics on this Boulder Bicycle frame. We can now offer this hand lettering option on any Boulder Bicycle frame (for an upcharge - no surprise).

For this frame, we went very light on the tubing (very light and very tall rider). We did what we hoped for - went about as light as we could without going too light. The mix of parts was fun - a TA crank the customer provided (the new TA arms are still "missing in action"), a Stronglight headset, and Mafac cantilevers. Other updates: The threadles decaleurs from Berthoud had a production glitch. So those are on hold. We do have our anti-rotation components for Berthoud decaleurs back from the machine shop. More updates and pricing to follow very soon. We have a number of stock Boulder Bicycle frames built and in the shop for immediate delivery. We'll do a seperate post with sizes in the next few days. Berthoud grey 28 handlebar bags are now back in stock - We're really excited about that ! Schmidt SON Deluxe hubs in silver 32 hole went a bit scarce recently. But we've had them all along... Keep riding and ride safe! PBP is less than 5 months away! Mike Kone in Boulder CO


  1. I want that cool hand lettering on mine!
    How much to have it done after the fact?
    I could make an appointment for the next time I'm in Boulder.


  2. Oh man, I wish I would have gotten that on my frame. It looks pretty sweet!
