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!
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
