Wrapping up Melissa's frame.
I got the seat stays all fabricated, I have these down to a few hours now with joining the segments, cleaning them up and bending them. I would be glad to stop making them but they look super cool and ride really nice, so they are here to stay. One of my signatures in framebuilding.
And here all tacked onto the rest of the unit, and below all brazed together.
Super-yummy: blue brass flux - take a chug!
Finished fillets still very hot.
Bling! a seat tube junction fully polished.
And, the whole bike as well.
Mandatory booty shot - nice curves with the Coco-Motos.
Excellent "flow" throughout.
What can I say? That's money.
Signature Coconino seat cluster.
And, the Coco-Moto dropouts - soon, Vulture Cycles & I will be working on a version with a derailleur hanger and twin rack mounts - a few months out.
Thanks for reading, all! - 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
