Hey Dave,
Did you set this one up for medium-reach brakes?

Oh man! You-are-killing-me-here!
Beautiful frame and that paint is just beyond......
I like the way the black stripe flows up the DT and under the lug onto the HT.
Just awesome. Well done!

Onesto.

I love working with stainless steel for the same reason I fear it.....there is no place to hide and every moment I spent fabricating the frameset will show in the end. It highlights the real work and it is what it is. It's 'honest' for a lack of a better term. This is why this version of the JKS is known as the "Onesto", or "honest" in Italian.

This Onesto goes to a true gentleman living in the southeast who already owns a number of my bikes and I'm happy that this will join the stable. It is Onesto.

Beautiful. I'm still kicking myself for not ordering one of your bikes instead of my current steel bike...

Pricing –

It’s been many years since my pricing was adjusted to reflect the increased costs of nearly everything that goes into building a bicycle frameset and the time has come. The new pricing will take effect March 15th, 2016 and all orders placed before that date will be at the old lower price. If you look at the model pages on my website you’ll find both the old and new pricing listed. So if you've been on the fence get your order in soon and get the lower price.

If you have any questions about bikes, pricing, or the meaning of life contact me and I’ll do my best to get you answers. Thank you very much for your continued trust and support.
