A new Coconino Cycles Mountain Cruiser

  All photos mixed randomly, as blogger likes to do to me now………
 But, here is another CCMC, this one in a luscious "Arizona Copper" - here is the detail of the finish work on the kicker tube/down tube junction.

 I got a new bad-ass 27.2mm seat post reamer from Joe Bringheli - always stoked to get a new tool from Joe.
 Below, I'm using a crown race cutter, also from Joe B, to finish a fork.

 Below, standard glamor shots.

 Stock hand poured head badge, same as always.

 There is a deep gold flake laid over this color.

 Unicrown fork, tons of clearance and elegant.

 Serious toil, there.
Stay tuned in the next few days for a full build queue, some important news, and Coconino Cycles actually gets bike models!

One cruiser down, another cruiser up, and out of here all next week.

 Once again Blogger has scrambled my photos, but they are all here, so it's all good.
I think I posted some images of this frame, but not in the sun - it's been spring/winter/spring, so it's been a hard call.
Anyhoo, this is Coconino Cycles "Team Orange" - it has a deep yet subtle gold flake, and if I do say so myself, is a bad-ass color!

 Excellent clearance, two piece tapered stays, horizontal/disc/derailleur tab/rack mounts/44mm headtube

 Sweet lines included N/C

 Off & going on a Coconino Mountain Cruiser


 Excellent clearance at 16.5" and the kicker braze.

 A burly braze, and completed Fun Stays.

 Sun/snow/sun/wind/snow/sun/wind/sleet/sun/wind = Spring.

 As-brazed, they will be "massaged"

 Now finished with smoother lines.

 The pick-up!
Always so fun.


 The completion of every cruiser is a celebration.

 Some fine polishing.

Just a quick post, and I'm out of here all next week kayaking for my birthday, and keep posted as the next post will be cool pics and big news as well the the current build queue - see you next weekend!
