    Velo Cult Museum.

    I wanted to share with you guys a new section of my web site. We launched our museum over the weekend. It's been a year in the works. We plan to add a new bike every two to three day so keep checking back.

    Take a peek and feel free to add a comment. http://velocult.com/museum/

    Won't be that one. That bike is not done. It's my longest standing project. I can never decide how to build that mofo.

    Mantis Sherpa.

    That's a great collection. Is the museum virtual only?

    Yeah, the Sherpa would be a good one.

    It's pretty much virtual only. Bro's get to see my bikes but I can't afford floorspace in San Diego to actually display bikes that aren't for sale. If I ever do get a larger shop that has room for a museum from the ceiling I'll do it.

    Wow, quite an eyeful here Sky! Between the Lighthouse, Moots, Cielo etc, etc, its hard to pick a favorite. The website organization and presentation is nicely laid out as well.

    And one nitpicking comment - the seatube mounted bottle cage on the Cielo should be removed. It renders the portage strap unusable! Or very uncomfortable at the least.

    All those roadies, and no complaining, feel the love

    Sweet collection Sky, I have a long way to go. Wish you were on my side of the world, I'd love to see a few of those up close.

    Love that Singer, never seen a pink one!
    This is a Pugs not some carbon wannabee pretzel wagon!!

    Bongo Fury is my favorite

    Errr, make that the Bonzo Fury, though Bongo Fury would have been a better name.

    Nice site Sky.
    In full tour mode you probably won't be picking it up and carrying it anyway. Having as much water on a tour is more important. I have carried bikes with the seat tube bottle in place and it does get into your side. The cage moves some but I certainly wouldn't want to carry it for any distance with it on.
    On my Survival bikes and my Sherpa I had brazeons for my fishing pole too. It was on the DT on the drive side. I don't think I put them on this bike. It had a sock that was made of the same material as the strap that bolted on and the rod fit inside.

    Sky, that is great, the collection, the presentation, the overall beautiful site, that you launched the museum before the online store, all of it. Your shop is top notch too.

    That orange/yellow fade P-23 Team would be nice to see.

    And your CCR or the Custom Potts deserve to be up there.

    This Cielo Chris King gave me some ideas for a similar color Klunker I have on the shelf. Nice collection.

    Yeah, Kostman's. I've been trying to make a play on that for years. One day It'll be mine I hope.
