Koski Custom Bikes made in the USA.
Operating as usual
A few of Chris Paretich’s friends on some of his bikes went up to the Bowl Saturday night to honor him.
It has already been a year since he had to roll on.
This is one of his bikes that went up and was piloted by CF a bike builder himself and one of CP’s closest friends.
CP was the mon that could bend Ti and did his secret methods for several builders of Ti bikes.
He built a few of these beautiful Ti cruisers but this one was his.
See you around the bend CP

Agh... a little help please... this harvest plan needs to be defeated.
Doesn’t seem right that they could close Jackson Forest to all user groups for up to five years for a million dollars in trade for all those trees.
Log Manly gulch, F’ that!
This is not right. Help!

Yo, stop by Sierra Ski & Cycle and check out Gary’s place next time you are up in South Lake Tahoe. He has been doing it since before there were “Mountain bikes” and had an original Pro-Cruiser back in the day... He still has it!
Shown here with his Gearbox Koski, his creation, by Ventana and SyCip with his henchman holding a new Koski. Stop by his old school shop and tell him Donny sent you for the full treatment!
If you are considering running a suspension fork. An a2c of about 530mm works really well with these.

Dave and Donny with Mert Lawwill and Joe Lawwill hanging out in Tiburon, Ca.!
TC is holding the first Pro-Cruiser frame built and DK holding his frame he handed off to Mert Lawwill to build the first mass production off-road bikes with Terry Knight.
This image was taken a while ago while hanging out with all the brothers that ride and put on the greatest event of all times “the RedBull Rampage” held in Virgin, Utah.
Hoping to be there next year! Thanks TB!

Anybody else want one?
Ultimate Koski Bike Kampingk is a thing.

Yo Gary! Looks fantastic !
Ventana / Sycip !
Gary Bell is one of the pioneers of Tahoe mountain biking. He helped found the original TAMBA in 1988, then steered the organization through the 1990s. Last night Gary was out riding his brand-new custom built mountain bike – with an 18 speed internal gearbox at the bottom bracket, and the frame is designed around Gary’s original Koski Lawwill Pro Cruiser mountain bike from 1979. Absolutely timeless, and no, this bike doesn’t have a motor!

Bomber is/was a name used for a bike that one used to rip down the hill on.
A Klunker or Clunker, was a name used for a bike that was put together by sourcing parts that were obtained at the ready and spending to build it kept low, hopefully.
A Hybrid is what Alan Bonds called his bikes he sold before there were “Mountain bikes”.
“All Terrain Bikes” is the name The Cove Bike Shop used
around the time of publishing the first off-road bicycle catalog.
We still like the name Bomber! It is possible that some people may not like it these days. Sorry!
Bikes not Bombs!
Zo’z TM high on the Mtn.
With an early CBR.
The TM twins of PTB and MPH @ BizzJohnson
w/ Thor’z Helmut for an extra boost!
1st DH drop was, of course, Repack.
AB won the first Repack which was a segment of a race he and his Bros. called, The Enduro.
It started, if I’m remembering the lore correctly, up on Pine Mountain Rd. and blasted down Carson Falls gully to Alpine lake. Went up Old Vee back to PMR. Took a left somewhere near the start of Repack and mazed through the pygmy cypress and manzanita to the West back up to the saddle before Pine Mountain.
Then head on back to the top of Repack. Fred Wolf, I believe, was at the top of Repack with a clock and another Bro was at the bottom sync’d.
Who is the real Daddy of Dirt?!
What’s different about this build?
