In addition to the bike stuff, I've also been taking on some additional projects. You can check them out @WinterCutlery on IG.



Mixing it up a bit helps keep everything feeling fresh!

For me, this is the draw for custom bikes. It's the details, the thought and effort, function and artistic fun.

The piping for the brakes, the lug work, the cable routing, the steel fork, t by e drop out sand the seat cluster. I love all if it.

I follow you and a few other builders (frame builder fan) and seeing the work in the raw, you're able to appreciate it more.

Of course I'm sure it will look awesome painted. Than kn s for sharing and keep posting work here.

Thank you! I love sharing the raw bikes- it's a great way to see what I "really" do with the metal work.

This one will get a pretty nice set of paint cloths, I'll be sure to put it up.

Thanks for following the work!

I had a lovely time again at this years Bespoked. I'm still recovering a bit, but here are some fun photos provided by Ben Broomfield, the show photographer.







This was a fun one to show. Most of my "show bikes" are client rigs, and I'm always pleased to show what I've been up to and what I've been putting out the door. This one was a little different as I built it for myself as a travel bike (for a trip that didn't really happen). I don't do much painting, but I try to get in the booth just enough to not forget what I know. Since this one was for me, I sprayed it a nice, dark ceramic with a lighter ceramic detail. For a travel bike in particular it's a great finish since it's so abrasion and corrosion resistant, and the dark color keeps it a little bit of a sleeper when it's locked up in parts unknown. For an accidental "show bike" it's also great- ceramic is incredibly thin and as such very unforgiving as it only magnifies any deficiencies in the metal work. In this case, I'll toot my own horn and say that, for folks looking, it really showed the level of cleanliness and refinement I strive for with all my bikes (and generally exceed on client work).

Much to my surprise and delight, I was humbled with an award for "Outstanding Finish/Paint" by judges that saw the subtlety of a well chosen and applied surface finish over well finished and constructed metal work. Quite the surprise for a subtle, monochromatic paint job I did myself.






Thanks to everyone who came out to the show, and thanks to Rody and Todd for helping me with my silly paint questions and showing me the ropes.

Incidentally, if any one wants a great deal on a fun bike that's a little different then my bread and butter rando's, this one is available, and I'd love to do other similar work.

That is flat-out gorgeous.

Is that what people refer to as "cerakote"? I'm not familiar with different ceramic finishes.
