biggest blog post ever? Kenny's frame, Pete's frame, Ed's frame / lots of various things & goings-on.

Kenny's frame all done & off to TX. That's a damn nice frame if I do say so myself........

Beautiful flowy lines, orange & sparkly.

Really smooth, too.

Pete picked up his 29er.

........I think he was pretty stoked......

Ed's bike off to a start, a 29er for VA.

Front triangle knocked out.

Chainstays on, alignment checked.

Wheel with cassette, disc & a panaracer 2.35" rampage all mounted up. All good. Leaving in the morning for a 36hr fishing trip to make sure our new 2011 fishing licences work while we can still trade them in.

I got D.'s 26" gear bike all going. It's been awhile since this saw dirt, but man - it's seen allot. this thing was hammered.

Doug passing the torch to son Ian. Making 20" wheels for a canoe/kayak trailer.

Ka-Pow!!!!

I was cruising around the shop taking random pictures.

This machine has seen duty with Hunter Cycles & Rock Lobster Cycles and made many frames here. This machine has knocked out thousands & thousands of miters.

No Fun.

Flux is your friend!

I like this shelf.

Measuring tools.

I love old comparison tools, especially tiny metal rulers - go figure.

Weird little widgets.............

Dummy axles.

Ripping some slickrock in Sedona.

Fun stuff!!!

Pretty, too. It was actually pretty damn cold.

It must look pretty zany to see a guy ripping one of these around, huh?

Cathedral Rock.

Clear Creek - this hill was grim, but I made it.

Very near our Camp Verde house. Check out the majestic sycamore trees.

Petito on the Rio Verde just down the street from our house in CV.

there's a river beer up there........still closed - bet it's ripe!

Petito on Beaver Creek.

A different Sedona ride.

And off in the Dry Creek drainage.......

And we got allot of work done down south. It's going to be beautiful when everything starts to green out.

Well that will have to do for now - LOTS of stuff going on. Continuing Ed's frame on Thurs & then I'd like to start Hanna's bike if we get the parts all sussed up. See you all in a few days! - Steve

Nice work Steve, your last few frames have been totally awesome. The sedan ride looked nice. As usual orange bikes "Rule", the gold top coat is one of my favs.

I agree. Love the orange!
And how the hell did you snap a C-clamp like that?
