  • The Jiggernaut, pictured above, could bring bicycle framing to the masses.
  • VP Components will be holding a Dirt Club Enduro June 23rd-24th in Los Olivos, CA. They’re calling it “an awesome and exciting test of speed, skill and endurance for mountain bike enthusiasts of all levels.”
  • Lifeboat’s reporting that Independent Bicycle Dealer preregistration is already up 250% over last year for DealerCamp. Raleigh, Cannondale and Scott bikes are using the event as their dealer launch event, and we’ll be there covering all the goodness. The venue was pretty impressive last year, but some vendors were complaining that retail attendance was a bit low. It’s still a young event, though, and we’re glad to see it growing.

I need a Jiggernaut; that is too cool. I just hope I wouldn’ t set it on fire.

Oops–I should have read the faqs. They say it just gets a little charred, especially if you just use it to tack the frame together. Very cool.

I spoke with David (co-inventor of the jiggernaut), and they are selling the jigs here: http://www.flatpackfoundry.com/index.php?route=product/category&path=20
