Kish Fabrication custom ti

I just joined the forum, although I have lurked a long time, and thought I'd say hello by posting my Kish Fabrication ti road bicycle.

I've had it for 2 1/2 years and love the bike more every day. Jim is a great guy and a terrific builder, imho. Check out his gallery; there are some beautiful bikes there.

3/2.5 straight gauge.

Trivia note: this is the first stainless steel badged Kish, after months and months of trying to work out production issues, etc.

Thanks all. With the Shamals this bicycle is fantastic.

Yes, that room is pretty amazing: it does laundry, plays great music, builds up amazing frames...a multi-tasking room to beat all multi-tasking rooms.

Mikej, if you do contact Jim, you won't be disappointed. He's a great guy, very nice, and has a sound philosophy and tons of experience.

PS: That's NOT my laundry room, by the way, it's Jim's shop.
I wish that it was my laundry room: amazing stuff comes out of there!

Built in 2004!

Link fixed today courtesy of Black Dog! (Thanks.)

Jim now lives on the other side of the country; those bands are probably all gone (definitely RIP Lou); but this bicycle lives on!
