Justin's frame off to paint / Jude's off to him, / we are out of here until March 11th.
Justin's frame is off to paint & i'll get it when we return.
a couple of final detail shots. here, the Stainless Steel dropouts are brazed on with silver alloy.
ditto here - H2O bottle boss reinforcement.
Jude's turquoise frame is off to CA tomorrow morning.
now that's smooth & shiny!
these critters aren't dumb - the heater is the place to be right now.
that's it for awhile y'all. we are leaving morning and will be returning late on the 9th of March but for all practical purposes i won't be in the office until the 11th - trip cleanup! see you all then, Steve & Denise.
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
