I just got three forks done, Including this one for Stuart, which is a few builds out, but it's easier to do these in batches even though they were all different. I also made one for Amy P., but somehow did not get a picture of it?
This one is for Hanna.
The disc fork fits a 650B x 2.35 with *maybe* 1mm on each side, but is designed for a 700c.
Checking out the Paul brakes.
These are called "spigots"
It done snowed a bit!
The neighbors block the driveway & honk!
well, I'm going to try and actually go for a bike ride tomorrow, and then back on Mon. to start hanna's frame now that I'm out of fork-landia. - 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
