Dave, I think you have answered this before, but when do you consider the best time for someone to visit Bozeman? Mainly interested in cycling.

I'd say early September......late September and you risk high mountain snow and mid-August can still be hot.

We can have wonderful cycling weather for many months but the most reliably perfect time would be early September.

Do you want to ride on the road or MTB?

Cool - if you said MTB I'd say late summer into fall because it takes a long time for the high spring snow to melt.

First close-up I've seen of a pump peg on an Onesto. It's sweet! Man-o-man am I excited to take delivery when mine is finished.

This stainless Onesto X (made with XL sized tubing) is now off to my partner Joe Bell's shop where he's going to work up some painted accents as well as paint a set of Honjo fenders and pump to match. The yellow decal-like logos you see are the masks used during the glass bead blasting process to protect the mirror polished logos. Once JB is done they will come off leaving the brand logos unblasted and shiny.

That sounds like it'll be very cool. Subtle yet striking. Would love to see the 'after' photos. Thanks for sharing.

I have a SS bike that I would love love love to get the logos etched & maybe bead blasted. Do you (or do you know if JB will) do that for other builders frames? I can't find anyone local who'll do it.

Sorry but no - I only work on my own brand.

Who built the frame? Might they be able to do it?

I wonder if Velo Colour could do it? Have you checked with any paint shops? They have all the stuff needed to make that happen.

This one has race bike roots but all road, and all weather, capability.
