rockin' out a sweet frame for keenan.

the next wave of builders?
i really get into my work........
i super dig this picture - keenan had a good eye for great pics, he took all of the ones that he's not in.
plenty of verbal support............
that's one stoked dude - you would be too! we sized it so it should be a trusty steed for years to come.
some of the best brazing i've done to date.
nice pic!


super good buddies yod & keenan came down for a whirlwind tour of just a couple of days so we could build keenan a new race bike for the upcoming MTB season. keenan takes after yod in the rippin' it up department and was schooling others on his hardrock up in bend, oregon. yod was best man at my wedding and i at his, and i've know keenan since he was born 15 years ago, so obviously this would not do - he needed a coconino! so, after two long days with the boys and various local helpers and a few solo hours doing braze-ons the result was a mighty fine frame. it came out so smooth that the brazes will see no file. it sure was fun/exhausting! keep your eyes out for an orange blur up in the deschutes national forest! try doing something for pure personal emotional gain and satisfaction for someone you care about, it will enrich both your lives for years to come. steve.

Very cool. Last time I saw that boy he was in diapers and couldn't talk. What kind of label do the children of Mutants carry around.

nice to see the young ones on a hand built bike. He is going to be one fast kid.
