BIKES DESIGNED AND HAND BUILT IN MICHIGAN, USA
Hey! Check out Sean Robinson of Austin, Tx., who is doing a cross country tour and RAGBRI tour this summer: www.tallbiketour.com
We've been busy setting up a bunch of events to let people see and ride the bikes that we've been running this winter in Florida, Texas, and Michigan. We hope everyone has a lot of fun getting to know their way around with these NEW, FUN BIKES.
Joe also went out to Portland, Oregon to check out the Pedal Nation Bicycle Show during the first week of April. The people of Portland really are committed making the best of their political strengths to have bicycles be in the forefront of the urban planning, joining the water conservation, and road improvement needs into creative multi-use road and landscape combinations.

Joseph VanLoozen of VanLoozen Brothers Bicycles and Scott Southers of BSM Technologies teamed up in 2007 to develop the Very Big Bike in order to fill a need in the cycling community, first recognized some years ago by Joseph, to have this extra fun ride.
We modified an early (1978) model tall bike, that Joseph built in shop class, into our current 2010 model 40-P1, (For The People).
Joseph has been creative with many projects, ranging from metallurgy and woodworking, to landscape design and architectural planning. He has been influenced by many years, and good times, riding and driving horses, and running the roads on many eye catching rigs. Building and refining this bicycle to be a well balanced and technically sound riding machine has been great fun, and he wants to make sure everyone gets a chance to share the fun this bike has to offer.
Scott has been into bikes forever, has a great collection of vintage bikes, and has been part of numerous bike frame start ups. A mainstay for his shop has been setting up mounting devices for software development for Bosch, Ford, GM, and others. Scott has advanced his tubular fabrication shop to bring everyone who is into bikes one of the most contemporary designs yet.
