Latest bikes out the door.
This beautiful 650B went to go live in the Gila National Forest in NM
It came out just super-awesome.
Here, we had it set up 1st with Groovy love handles, but switched to a Thomson Titanium.
Busting out some fun stays........
Don't get all bent or anything.
Set for dual mitering.
End of the day, clean up, have a beer, take it in.
All brazed up, and as of right now at Spectrum Powder Works.
Above, roughed out, below, full polish.
Nice curves, tight miters.
So, tack it already!
A complete bike now, and almost ready for paint.
In the hotseat, get ahold of me now if you have not already done so: Michael G, David M, Brad A, K-Bar, *Baja* E-mark, Steve C, Tom F.
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 4/13 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 2014
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.

"Opinion is really the lowest form of human knowledge. It requires no accountability, no understanding. The highest form of knowledge is "empathy", for it requires us to suspend our egos and live in another’s world. It requires profound, purpose‐larger‐than‐the‐self kind of understanding." - Bill Bullard.
