cool projects as of late.






been doing some cool stuff! just banged out this frame as an experimental dealie-o. i'll keep you posted, it might be a new model-type mutation, i'm not quite ready to unveil it yet. give me a week or so........ the brazing looks sweet! and, that in its self is somewhat of a clue. stay tuned. also, some sweet wheels for ivan in florida. ivan - i just got a suitable box for these sweeties, i'll get them out in the next couple days, wed. at the latest. they are phil wood one speed disc hubs with quick release axles and the "slr" option, with the holes drilled all the way through both flanges and the disc mount, laced to velocity 29er blunt rims with stainless steel dt-swiss spokes. did you know dt-swiss got their start making chainmail armor? that, my friends, was a looooong time ago! and, lastly but not leastly, cameron's NEW coconino! what a sweet color! the old one had a little uh, accident involving a garage, and this one is here just in time for the birth of matt and cameron's new son. get matt over here to build that thing up! tomorrow i'm going to start posting a special build i've really been psyched to start on, a cross/commuter for frank in washington, dc built almost entirely out of a super top notch kaisei tubeset i received from ubi to do a build report on. so far, i'll say this - it's some of the sweetest tubing i've ever seen. later, steve.

once again - you produce finest fillets in the business. i think that the little model type mutation surprise that is to be unveiled shortly is a good one. mister shafer comes to mind.

the blunts seem really great - wide, big footprint, light, really straight. i've laced other velocity models that lasted for years, and are still out there spinning nicely. steve.

Wow! That color is rad. Phew, I was worried it would look bad. It was hard to choose a color but it's not too PINK so I'm really excited. I just sent my old shock off to Marazochi (sp?) to be serviced....(I have a spare) it will be back just in time for the first ride. Hopefully the snow will stop and my body will heal from delivering this baby boy. They tell me 6 weeks. 2 down 4 to go. I promise to get you the photos I shot soon. I am on baby time right now... pooping, nursing, sleeping-REPEAT... but not necessarily in that order.

I'll be sure to shoot some awesome shots of this new bike in the woods.
