Craig Ryan of Forest frames fame. I met him at last year's Baller's ride. He's a super nice guy and very smart to boot. It's been a pleasure doing business with him. Great price, quick communication and lots of pictures. Everyone loves pictures right?

Link to pics of my frame being refinished.

I saw his bikes up close as well and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

There's a reason I didn't stick with the green (you'll see). I sure did want to at first. The original finish took a beating from commuting a few years and me trying to jam fenders on the bike. I lost a lot of clear from mounting the fenders on the carbon.

As you can see here, the frame needs a ton of light to be appreciated. Indoor shots won't show what's going on.

In other words, the bike will want to be outside all the time.

M. Ergott, can you PM his going rate? Or post it.
I have an HSG IT thats got some bubbling going on (probably going to try to jam fenders on it too) and am curious what i'll need to refinish it in the coming years.

Paint work looks beautiful by the way. really top notch.

Looks great Eric. Nice to have a frame you love, send it away and it feels new. Congrats.

What wheels are you gonna put on that thing?

The build will be revealed all at once, but nothing too crazy as far as wheels.
