Dave's bike is so sweet it deserves it's own blog post.
There has been much dialogue on the WWW concerning whether you are basically a poor or boring builder based on if you are open to strange or non mainstream bikes. For me it's not appearance that I sell - it's fit. Appearance is secondary, and i believe form follows function, and if it's built correctly to function, then beauty is naturally achieved, like a fine blade, a wild trout, a sea kayak, or a custom bicycle.
I built my reputation not through making people look, but by hopefully helping them see - to see what performance and comfort I can provide from 23 years of professionally working on bikes, touring all over the world by bike, over 20 years of racing from short track to 100 mile to 12 hour to 24 hour events, and on top of it a solid fabrication background. This is what I sell, and I think what is pictured here is the quintessential Coconino Cycle.
Thanks for reading, everyone - many thanks - Steve.
