This year I am bringing 2 customer bikes, one customer frame set and one "after hours special". I am very lucky in that my clientele seems to gravitate towards full Winter kits (frames, forks, stems and racks) and that for some time every bike I've been working on is one I would be happy to bring and show.

I'll save the big reveal for the exhibit hall, but here are a few select teasers from the workshop:

I swear if you don't post a pic of that FINISHED bike ASAP I'm going to have Keith ban you!* :no:

(*I'd do it myself but I've never have been able to figure out exactly how. He's the Tech Guy!**)

Absolutely beautiful work! Other commitments preclude my attendance at the show so I hope you post photos of the finished products during and after.

Thanks, guys. None of the bikes are quite finished yet. I'll be finishing the last of the frame work and assembly of the bikes in the coming days. I have 2 at paint, parts at chrome and build kits set out.

I'm not holding anything back- you'll see them all in their full glory as soon as they are ready.

Min-N-MAX, a blend of MAX and S3 to suite the rider. I've done a few of this sort. I started building it up today, and to be a tease- it's pretty sweet. :p

* Between tomorrow and the end of March I'm looking at going to the following shows: Show Me Yours (in PDX), NAHBS, The Seattle Bike Expo and then Bespoked (Bristol). This one man band is going on tour. If you are going to any of these be sure to say hello!
