I'll get some better pics in the sun to try and do this color justice - I'm so busy that this early in the morning is all the time I have to update you guys. When I get all the following projects all tied up better pics I promise......Anyway, this frame going out to Ed in VA tomorrow.
Frame prep on Amy's bike. a "dirt roadster / light tour / all rounder"
These spigots came out nice. Action shot!
I'll get this one out in the sun after it's all fitted up for her.
Stuart's seat stays.
All brazed & hanging out to dry. Filing to begin tomorrow.
An African Violet.
We met D.'s Sis & family up on the AZ strip for a few days.
The pink prickly pears are blooming, the yellow ones follow behind by a few weeks.
15yr old dog + 40mph winds.
D. kicked my ass fishing! Man, I kinda sucked!
I was not skunked, however..........
My darling nieces - growing up so fast!
N. & D. - sisters, ya think?
Sorry for the quick post, but just super busy. Lots of projects! - Steve.
Stuart's frame coming right along, fork done & in the background. disc brakes with up to at least 40mm tires, maybe 45's with no fenders, plus a 50/39 chainring set-up pictured. It will have dropbars and largely road components but White Industries MTB disc hubs. This would be a fine bike to ride around the world or down to the store. Just about nuts on at 1st check. Just a minor adjustment........
A bunch of tubing from True Temper - made in the USA! Coconino frames are made from as many USA constructed components as possible.
'member that time I couldn't 'member, 'member?
Out of here to meet some family up at the ferry for a few days but back in the office on Tues.
Well, I started this project before I had surgery & I have to say that it's going to be great to put all the projects I did start previously to that behind me.
.....Checking it out with the matching fork. Lookin' good!
a swanky little oval brace all fitted up & checked for clearance. Gobs of room with a fat 32.
Not bad for the 1st braze after two weeks.
That will polish up just fine, too.
Pretty much nailed that one on the right.
Just a whole bunch of polishing & a handful of braze ons, paint & assembly.
Arm pump! Boy, I lost weight with my whole gallbladder ordeal. I'm pretty sick of feeling weird but it is abating as my body grows accustomed to one less organ.
Hopefully I will get to go kayaking on Sun/Mon but I am waiting until my abdomen heals to go cranking on it with the hand cycle, as this could lead to a hernia, which I most surely do not need to happen....... - Garro.
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
