all kinds of stuff..........






just a quick post - i've got sooooo much work to do! so, here's a pic of frank's bike, i finally got all the bits'n'pieces together, and it looks SWEET! it's a cyclocross-ish commuter, and it's probally one of the lightest bikes i've ever built. it's the kaisei japanese tubeset, and it built up really nice, some of the finest quality tubes i've ever used. if you want to check them out, they are distributed in the usa by united bicycle institute - www.bikeschool.com it also uses the lewellen dropouts front and rear and dazza's sti mounts too. all this would add up to about a $200.00 upgrade on the build, that stuff don't come cheap. also, cross forks as pictured will be going for $275.00, available with frames only. and a post braze pic of ben's 29er cruiser fresh outta the dunktank, as soon as it stops dripping i'm gonna get busy polishing that baby up - my hands hurt just thinking about it! and lastly, a few pics of me working on ben's bike - i cut myself pretty good, burned my thigh, got a blood blister, and filed my knuckle on his frame alone. shure you wanna build frames?

Yo Steveo,

The double top tube singly came out really nice. Those clean fillets MUST be due to that super sweet dunk tank you're rocking out! Keep pressing on brother,

Yup, I'm diggin' the nice clean lines of Frank's frame and fork.
And thanks for the comment regarding my WW, BTW.

Nice Job Garro!

Your bikes are looking beautiful. I remember seeing your first elevated chain stay frame you made in Portland (great day of riding in Longview w/flag gang too!). Anyhow, if you are ever in the Grass Valley, CA hood look me up-I live there permanently now and yes I am still riding. Riding Vulture 29'er and proud! Call Wade for my contact info if you ever are in the area-remember I am close to Downieville!

Brian lewis over and out....
