We Found a Box of BQ61!

We found another box of BQ 61, our 15th anniversary edition. Originally, it was so popular that it sold out quickly. The 128 pages were packed with special stories. (How can we top this when BQ turns 20 in a few years?)

The incredible ride over Kurakake Pass in Japan remains one my my absolute favorites – even though it turned into much more of an adventure than we had planned.

Peter Weigle’s story of making his famous superlight bike for the Concours de Machines, of going to France and participating in the event is a classic read.

We’ve also covered all the other amazing bikes at the Concours with their innovative solutions.

To put the event in perspective, we told the story of the amazing mid-century Concours

… including a photo feature of a superlight Barra aluminum bike that participated in 1949.

We visited Paul Components in CA and took you into the magic factory where CNC machines hum to produce the coveted parts.

We tested two amazing dream bikes: a Steve Rex monstercross and

… Brian Chapman’s Randonneuse that charged its DI2 battery from the generator hub.

One box of this special 128-page edition won’t last long, and once they’re gone, that’s it! Click here to order your copy.
