Be sure to click through their stuff, they have some really nice photos.

The internet came alive- it was a real pleasure to shake the hands of so many forum and internet contacts. I had a great time.

If you are in Seattle this weekend be sure to say hello at the Seattle Bike Expo, and if you are in Bristol at then end of the month be sure to swing by the Bespoked show.

That light blue bike w/fenders: puuuuurty. :beer:

Stainless steel or chromed in back? If stainless, how long does it take to get that polish and how do you do it?

You sure do make good looking stuff!

I mean REAL good looking!

EricEstlund 03-07-2012 12:43 PM

Thanks!

The light blue bike is one of my Mix-N-MAX bikes; those are MAX chain stays and Ture Temper seat stays. Chrome- I really dig chrome. I get the polished look but on any tube I want.

There is other SS in the booth (finishing up on e of the raw bikes I was showing today). For SS I am more of a brushed/ semi industrialist rather then a full polisher, both from an aesthetic and mental health standpoint.

That blue bike has 4 or so series of tubes in it. The stuff that matters are MAX, S3 and OX plat. That is not atypical for my bikes- I pick the tubes for each location based on the rider and the intended use/ fit, etc.

The silver 650b gravel crusher is predominately OX Plat, the track bike is a mix of TT and Tange, etc.

Angry- thanks, that one was a bit of surprise. I built that about a year ago and have been cruising around on it since. I had no intention to show it, but brought it in on special request. Turns out the sleeper bike I geeked out making was fun for other folks to geek out on, too. Whale-tail lugs, integrated light mount/ internal wiring and a sleeper package of subtle top shelf parts on a fully stainless city rig. It even had genuine commuting grime (i meant to just ride it around while in town). Not a bad coffee bike, and I was really blow away by the reception.

More of that one being born here .

lugged or fillet
 
silver or brass - Eric you seem to be able to do it all amazingly. You're fillets are so amazing too. I'm a regular stalker of your work on flickr. I love seeing your posts. I hope to own something of yours in the future.

Loving the blue
 
I'm loving the light blue roadie w/ fenders. Interested to know more about the fork construction, it's beautiful. Also, which fenders are those? They appear to be narrow enough to work w/ Campy Skeleton brakes. Please share.

Thanks!

EricEstlund 03-08-2012 06:18 PM

That is an internally lugged Columbus MAX bladed fork. I really like these with the Mix-N-MAX road frames. They fit a modest tire width, but are still quite sleek with the bilaminate feel of the lower DT/ HT joint.

When building road bikes my default setting is to max out the pad adjustment for use with thin fenders or larger volume tires. In this case the bike works with 23's (and some 25's) and Honjo 35mm fenders. Campy skeletal brakes actually lose room under the arch as the arms close (Shimano and most Tektro's gain room) so these are right at their limit with just enough room to adjust for wider rims. This bike is headed out the door with HED C2's on Record hubs. When the fenders are pulled it easily clears 28's for gravel riding.

Hey Eric,

They all look amazing, but I think you know which one I'm partial to. ;) :cool:
