Pelago Bicycles' word domination plan is advancing nicely along with Brooks' sponsored US exhibition tour. Go check it out if it hits your town. If not for anything else at least they're promising free alcohol!
If you have any interest in the so-called Monstercross or gravel grinder bikes, you probably know about Singular Peregrine.
Peregrine appears to be one of the most versatile frames out there with 700c wheels: lugged steel f+f with classic style and geometry, disc brake-ready, can be built geared or ss/fixed as it has EBB, fits racks front and back as well as fenders AND has clearance up to 2" knobby 29er tires.
If you been thinking of getting one, like me, you probably also know they've been sold-out everywhere for a long time now. But here's the news from Singular Cycles:
"The Peregrines are coming! The much loved and super versatile Peregrine frameset has been out of stock for some time. I'm glad to say that production is underway and we expect them back in stock in Feb/Mar 2013. There are a couple of small changes for this batch - the main one being that the disc mount will move from the seat stay to the chain stay in order to allow for better rear rack compatibility. Now that we have a reasonably definite timeframe for arrival I am taking deposits on pre-orders of these framesets HERE. £180 (inc VAT) down now reserves one of this batch just for you and will give a 10% discount off the retail price of £565 when they arrive. It seems nearly every email I get these days is enquiring about Peregrine availability, so if you want to ensure you get one of these much sought after frames then get your deposit in now!"
