Man's Greatest Invention

When man invented the bicycle he reached the peak of his attainments. Here was a machine of precision and balance for the convenience of man. And (unlike subsequent inventions for man's convenience) the more he used it, the fitter his body became. Here, for once, was a product of man's brain that was entirely beneficial to those who used it, and of no harm or irritation to others. Progress should have stopped when man invented the bicycle. - Elizabeth West

Purpose and Mission

To share our experience and to encourage and inspire others to use a bicycle as a form of year round recreation and transportation. To be an example of living car-free and to help others to make the transition to having a car-light or car-free life style.

Our bodies is the engine that moves us.

The Orange Green Machine

The Orange Green Machine, originally uploaded by SaddleUpBike.
The Troll is the perfect bike to haul stuff.


  1. So you have a Troll and a Karate Monkey. I'm curious as to the difference, they look like they are very similar.

  2. They feel quite different simply based on wheel size. The Troll feels like a tractor, the KM like a speeding freight train. Cheers

  3. Dear Seddleup ... I have seen you troll, I am going to set up my troll in the same way. Can you tell me which component did you choose ? I am wondering about compatibilty of Shimano's brake/shifte and front XT deralleur. Thanks for the hint!

  4. I used a Deore front derailleur with a XT rear.
