Andrew Taylor puts his VP Harriers to work in Italy setting out to explore the Dolomites with Niki Leither and Austrian BikeTrail World Champion Tom Öhler.

From Simon and Connor: In mountain biking, adventure is a necessity. Some of the most amazing things seen or done, all happen on an adventure. In October of 2014, Simon, Thomas, and I all crammed into Simons’ Toyota Pre-Runner with enough camping and camera equipment for a three day shoot. Our original intention was to make a bad-ass video that featured some amazing riding and scenery. This was far from what actually happened. We were blind sided with the insane cold and lack of preparation for it. We had no idea where we were actually going to film and relied on driving along the highway inView More>>

When we first introduced the Blade Ti pedal it was obviously something special.  A truly handmade work of art. Our friends at Ti Cycles in Portland Oregon certainly thought so,  and we began a partnership to supply their unique titanium creations with our own. Ti Cycles‘ craftmanship is legendary,  and when Oregon Manifest conceived the Bike Design Project to create urban bikes based on fresh ideas it was natural to tap Ti Cycles as a collaborator.  The Bike Design Project is a design and build competition challenging five teams representing five cycling-centric cities to rethink the bicyle and recreate it for their environments. Representing the wonderful city of Portland, Ti Cycles was paired with top level design firm Industry to provide the concept for a bike that Ti Cycles would produce.   The result: Solid PDX. A modern Titanium masterpiece assembled from 3d printed parts with integrated GPS, LED lighting, belt drive, internalView More>>
