kinda jacked up.........
i jacked up my left wrist polishing so i've been moving slow the last few days - i can hardly do shit with only one good limb to my name! still, i was able to prep Eric's frameset so he could come build it - dark ford blue, a fine color. i went to acupuncture & massage and i'm feeling better about my wrist, it's coming around. i'm constantly treading a thin line on the edge of overuse.
all built! quite the eclectic gruppo. ready to go around the block or around the world, no problem.
stoked guy leading his new pony home.
going to get back on Stan's frame today & wrap it up. wrist feels up to it - i need a color!
this kinda thing is what works you - repetitive motion.
lastly, curving top tubes.
that's it for now, ya'll. next time i'll be back with Stan's finished frame & Jude's in process - Steve.
Hi! my name is Steve Garro, and this blog is an ongoing chronical of the process of building the finest handmade bicycles I can here at Coconino Cycles, located in beautiful Flagstaff, Arizona.
I'm a one man operation, doing all the design and fabrication in house with my own hands. we have been operating full time since feburary 2003, producing about 20-25 frames a year, as well as handbuilt wheelsets and complete bike builds. every bike is totally custom fit to the needs and measurements of each rider and built from scratch with hand selected tubesets from several premium manufactuers including True Temper, Dedacciai and Kaisei. I pride myself on perfect fit, ride quality, and durability to provide you with the best cycling experence I can. to know more details, check out my web page, http://www.coconinocycles.com/
Please note that as of 1/14 I had a roughly one amd a half year backlog on orders. I have since stopped taking deposits to catch up on work until January 2015
When looking through my blog, you will also see alot of details of my life and pictures of things I like to do and stuff that I think is cool, like handcycling, fishing, boating, friends and family, critters, landscape, and flowers, with some wierd stuff thrown in for good measure. enjoy, and thanks for stopping by - Steve
