It is kind of embarrassingly that I grew up in northern British Columbia, not far from the bridge to nowhere (tm) and then across Canada, but I only have one Canadian bike. I've posted it before and still haven't gotten around to the needed resto, but at least I have a slightly better picture. This was the personal bike for Bushpig #2, Brenskin Bagdonis and now donated to my hoard. He and I went nuts designing our perfect rides between 1988 and 1989. His bike has a lot of the features we wanted, right down the the Ibis-clone paint.

So here is my Canadian bike. In the future I hope to have a lot more like Rocky Mountain Wedge and Tantalus, Brodie, DeKerf, Off Road Toad, and even humorous lugged Marinoni's. So, if you've got'em, post 'em!



p.s. Canadian Ti and Al is welcome too!

Been through on my way up 16 to catch the ferry to K town (quite a ways from mid-town, no?). I spent the mid 80's up there saving sinking fishing boats when I was a kid. By the way, the rear axle is actually 130 spacing. Miss-listed. Looks like BE has new 135's listed, though.

...and now back to BP's normal Canadian Steel post.

My 87 Blizzard. I have the bull moose bars but they're too wide and I don't have the nards to cut them. Seat post is in the bike room too, not sure why, I shined it up and never put it on. (I have something to do tonight now) Plenty more Rocky's but I'll get to it later.

I can get in on this fer sure. My DeKerf, its been many things and is now in linbo on it's way to being an off-road touring bike:



1996 Sovereign. Crack fixed, cable guides changed/removed, disk mounts added, powdercoated the blue of the bike that broke my back, and updated components where needed.

Then:



Now:




This bike is a big deal to me as it was my first serious set-up post injury. It's fast and I like it, it's got the best of both modern and oldish. It may one day be restored if I ever feel I have enough money and time to feel like spending them on my bikes looks. Oh, I long for that day.

Not sure if this qualifies as Canadian steel but it was only available in Canada and has a Rocky Mountain decal :rolleyes: Anyways, I know this is a favorite of Fillet Brazed :smilewinkgrin:
