so far, so good on march! got preskit matt's frame out yesterday, i really dig the color! it reminds me of butterscotch. super eclectic custom blend of tubing on this baby to achieve optimum ride quality - true temper headtube and downtube, 4130 toptube and seatstays, pacenti/reynolds seattube, dedacciai chainstays, and paragon bottom bracket and dropouts. nice. gotta love the uncluttered look of a dedicated one speed as well. next, got my new torch, so i'm back in buisness! it's a victor 100fc. it feels good in the hand. and, random shop pic, a shot of fabricating a chainstay brace. i cut all these babies from a 4 foot x 1/8" strip of 4130 steel. every one is different. also, got in a great sedona ride! conditions and weather were perfect. rode up in the dry creek area, except dry creek is not dry, but a raging, cold, crystal clear stream. super pretty. the flowers are gonna go off in a couple weeks. the stream flows kept me on the north side of the creek, i coulda crossed it, but i just overhauled my bike and i didn't want to totally submerge it and then fill it full of sand - i know, i'm a wuss. the doggies sure dug it, though. time to sign off, i'm gonna eat some breakfast and go try to get pvb's bike close to done, it's been lingering and i wanna get it to paint. steve.
