just a quick update on stuff.








been running around allot the last few days and doing many things to do with framebuilding but not getting frames built. it's true. there's allot of things you have to do other then just join metal and watch the coin roll in! also, sorry if the pics are on the technical/boring side, there's three bikes at paint so there should be some pretty stuff to show off soon. soooo.... i've been spending allot of time trying to get some upcoming build kits together, ordering supplies for builds, organising, streamlining and just connecting the dots. also, went to my favorite place yesterday - the doctor! i've had huge pain levels for the last month in my hips and it's getting hard to deal with. unfortunately, they found nothing wrong. i'd rather have it where they found something wrong so i could go down the path of getting it fixed up. being in terrible pain and not being able to ever say why sucks. any of you who know me and what i've been through know my pain level is high and that i hate hospitals so it's gotta be bad to get me in one. oh well, getting an MRI on monday, so hopefully that will tell me more. at least i can concentrate on building intensely enough to get my mind off of it allot of the time. anyhoo, going to the doc kept me from getting matt's bike brazed up yesterday, but it's almost there. looking REALLY nice. the flow on this frame is especially pleasing to my eye. soooooo..... here's some build shots to keep you going. let me know if you have any questions! gonna take the next couple days off of actual building to run errands, go handcycling and canoeing/fishing. also, check out the now homepage for my website, a sweet shot from cameron clark. she sure knows her way around a lens! thanks for reading! steve.

Dang, Steve, good luck with the MRI. I really hope the doctors can come up with some sort of treatment for the pain that won't involve a bunch of hardcore drugs that make it hard to concentrate in the shop. Building through the pain.....if the rest of the builders (like me )who get mad when something insignificant goes wrong in the shop could know only a fraction of your pain they might not sweat the little stuff so much. By the way, that's an excellent photo on your homepage of your site. Cheers, Paul.

thanks, paul! if the treatment involves painkillers i'm out. i gave that shit almost a year of my life. i'm hoping it's a pinched nerve or something that can be fixed with PT. it's true - framebuilding seems pretty low stress to me now! steve.

Hey Steve sorry to hear about the pain and the MRI. Hopefully it will tell you something that you don't already know. On the bike front if you are working Sunday or Monday I would like to stop by and see if my front derailleur (I really have no idea how to spell that) will work clearance wise. Let me know. Thanks.
Matt

Keep the technical pictures coming. Always good to see the nitty gritty of the operation. I really enjoy seeing the masters workshop. Hope the hip gets better soon.
