I can't wait! I can't wait! I can't wait! Delivery day is here! I got dibs on the blue one!

Eric is an awesome guy to work with. His metalwork is second to none.

Congrats, Joe! I saw your bike at the Seattle Bike expo - it's beautiful; nothing frou-frou about it but very elegant and purposeful looking. Easily one of the nicest looking bikes I've ever seen. Enjoy!

New deposit recently sent.

After studying many builders work, I think Eric is at the top of the best builders out there. I'm in line for a lightweight road race frame. Can't wait Eric!

It is really pretty cool to see all the high quality work that is being done...I would have loved to have gone to NAHBS and see this in person.

I'm going to bounce this one back up- I have FINALLY put up web galleries of the Navaja track and Wanderer all-roads bikes.

Bikes at NAHBS were all nice and all, but after a while it felt like most of bikes were yelling at me something like 'I heard you like lugs so I stacked a lug on top of a lug and brazed it and then tigged it so then I can shave it off to look like a brazed job not to mention carbon wrapped titanium tubes hahah. Do you want to hear about my lefty fork specific frame as well?'
Simply put it was overwhelming looking at show bikes all day, then I saw your bikes which I actually came back to see again at the end of the second day. Simple, elegant craftsmanship that I could actually see myself riding. Great work.

Thanks- I appreciate it. I really like to layer details, but in a cohesive way (visually and functionally). Everything I brought to NAHBS (save the track bike) was already a customers bike- and the track bike sold at Bespoked. Bikes first, pretty bikes second.

Rileystylee- I am planning to attend Bespoked this year. As we get closer to the show let me know if you would like to meet off the show floor. If people are interested I'm happy to take some personal time while I have it available. I'd love to try to make appointments with people I would otherwise not get to connect with.

Efuentes- even better then the show room floor shot were the photos the client sent me the day after delivery. It was out on the open road in the snow and slush, being ridden as intended! I don't know if the owner wants to share them, but he is a forum member.
