Toro Visits The Lost Coast

The Sinkyone Wilderness State Park is the southern part of the Lost Coast Trail in Northern California. This 20 mile, 3 day backpacking trek was an exhilarating experience witnessed by few. Black Sand Beaches, High Vistas over the coast and a bountiful array of wildlife consumed our attention. Pictures can not capture the beauty of the Lost Coast...

Tension & Release

For anyone that's put the time into building up their own bike know's that it can be quite the process. Deciding on components, sourcing the goods and finding the time to bring it together into a ridable rig can be exhausting. However, the payoff is well worth it when you're riding around on something born of your own two hands.

Last summer Kevin decided to take the plunge and build something he'd be proud to be rolling on. Not because it looked flashy or cost a grip of money but rather for the fact that he himself made it happen. For anyone who knows what goes into building something like this we'd like to share it with you. For the rest of's a look into Kevin's process and a look at a hot bike.
