The only problem with it is that it's not in my garage. That's a nice piece of work!

Ok, I'll ask. Why didn't the customer want thru axles?

Each frame I've built is custom so there really isn't a "line" per say. This is only the 7th frame I've built.

It's a Haas VF-3. Not mine though. It's my day job.

Are you open to visitors? I'm north of Santa Barbara, but pass through Valencia/Santa Clarita with some regularity in the summer as I head to and from the East Sierra.
Not much to see in my garage. The machining is done at my day job.

I believe he had a wheelset picked out for this frame already. I honestly don't see the advantage of a rear TA.

Too kind, too kind.

Yes, I really like how that came out too!!! Only prob is that it would be a bitch to block off the letters if you wanted to leave the SS behind the steel naked.

Looks amazing and would love to hear how it rides.

With that frame weight there's almost no reason not to go with steel on a gravel build nowadays. Any word from the owner on how it compares to something like a Moots or Niner?
