Video : Stitching of a Different Sort

Hey y’all! So, in an effort to make the Porcelain Rocket experience an even more ‘custom’ one, we are trying a little something new around here… Instead of sending out hundreds of rather standard and boring form emails, or even setting up a page list on the website, I’ve decided that I will do a little live-action video FAQ series. The first in the series: This is a basic tutorial on making a nice pattern for me to work from on a custom framebag build. If you have about 7 minutes to spare (and who doesn’t really?!), have a little watch. You...

Generally, I am not a huge fan of the way Yahoo! things operate, but I have to say, this one’s the business.

In the Works…

I’ve been plugging away with Fall orders, but I thought I’d let a few cats out of the bag for what’s coming in 2012: 1. I have had a number of folks ask about custom bags for Salsa’s Anything Cages. I am working on a prototype for these. I can say this; it’s gonna be a cute little thing that will stay put no matter what sort of terrain you take on. 2. I threw some feelers out with regards to what interest may be for custom bags that work on Xtracycle’s V-Rack platform. The responses were overwhelmingly positive, so with a little help from some good...
