Euro Famous

Days after our debut at the Oregon Handmade Bike Show the good folks from the Dutch Cyclists Union (where else!) got in touch about our designs. They had a handful of great questions for us + proceeded to give us a thumbs up on their online magazine Vogelvrije Fietser. The article with images is called Slim: spatbord met beugelslot - great read.

Needless to say we're excited about the European exposure + look forward to a research trip across the pond soon. More from Sweden as well as slightly Euro Hong Kong out now too.

Oregon Handmade Bike Show

After years of contemplation + effort we unveiled the current line, including The Woodsman wooden bike frame, at last weekend's OBCA Oregon Handmade Bicycle Show here in PDX. And what fun that was meeting so many bike minded folks + hearing about your ideas + the excitement for what Ruphus has to offer.

Thanks to all of you we were voted second place in the People's Choice right behind the extremely deserving Ahearne Cycles + slightly ahead of the very cool Winter Bicycles. Wait until you see the trophy it's going to be sweet (we made the first place one...). If you missed the show you can see more online thanks to bikerumorbikeportland + the Oregonian.

Thanks to everyone that stopped by our booth at the show, shared ideas + encouraged us on this trajectory. Special thanks to Julie for the smooth words + Dave Levy of Ti Cycles for the initial nudge to join the Oregon Handmade Bike Show (+ all the help along the way).

Welcome to Ruphus

It's starting. Now. The Ruphus line has to come together + we're unleashing our first line of goods for public enjoyment. A new take on bringing the warmth of wood into our modern lives.

For starters, we'll be offering two bike rack/fender combos, a beautiful desk called the Podpad, a bamboo iPhone dock, two versions of our Veer stool + an unbelievable wood bike frame called The Woodsman.

Thanks to all our friends + family who have put up + helped out with this ongoing process. Same to all our collaborators who have inspired + assisted.

Much more to come, we're slowly building our line up to keep up with our imaginations. 

WORK. PLAY. RIDE.

Ruphus
