I am very critical of my own work, but have to say that this is one of the finest frames i have ever made. It just gets an A++ on every line. I'm very proud of it, it took me over 300 frames to get to this point.
Below, pictured with the matching Vulture fork, really, really sweet.
that's a big bike.
Below, what was inside - I just need a handle and it's going from working in the Coconino National Forest to building Coconino Cycles over 120 years later - cool.
The best thing in my life, I could not think of life without her.
Thanks, faithful readers - more soon, it was a hell of an October on many levels.

Here is Bill's un-filed flat black 29er for the Zuni Mountains of Western New Mexico.
Pretty no nonsense, fully rigid, no moving parts. A dependable companion.
I replaced the entire seat tube - epic. Here is the finished frame, all ready to go out for more.
in this picture I am checking the alignment of the front triangle, which you must have down before you proceed to the rear stays.
Above, a Larkspur. Only a very few flowers left........tough ones.

Mostly just building bikes and trying to get out enough to maintain my grip upon my sanity, we will be out kayaking for our 11th anniversary from Oct 10th to the 13th - other then that, I'll be here.
Thanks for reading, all - And, thanks for your continued patience - Steve.
