no. company is done. it's too bad aaron couldn't make things happen; a brainy guy with lots of neat ideas. i think he needed to partner with someone to handle the business side of things whilst he focussed on design [HTML_REMOVED] building.

You just described Jerome at Cycles Appalache, or the former Cycles Appalache. Such a promising design and talented builder that needed someone to run the business. I'm still saddened by that one.

Nice article. Interesting to see the details of the ride described by the owner of the bike.

Awesome write-up Perry, but when you finally do decide to retire this beauty can you be so kind as to let everyone know what frame you plan on getting next? It seems you business closes bike companies and it'd be nice to stock up on replacement parts ;)

Sheesh, It took him long enough to get that carbon monster written up. I took those pictures early last summer so he's almost been on it more than 3 seasons. Scandalous amount of time to ride 1 bicycle…esp for him.

3 years is the amount of penance due for not telling his wife there was a new bike on the way! Considering that he didn't think I would notice a new skateboard deck this week he may have to keep the Lahar running for a VERY long time… :nono:

Forget Ferrari or Lambo - the Lahar M9 is Mclaren F1 exotic.

It's rather like Pagani Zonda F ;)

bummer that the bike is vapor ware, but thanks for posting it nonetheless. certainly it will be a worthy footnote in the advancement of our sport.
