I had a goal of doing PBP 2011 but have a strong suspicion that it will not be reached. What is the next best thing??
Having someone ride a bike that you made with PBP in mind. I am excited to be starting the bikes for NAHBS soon and one of them will be a road bike that is for all conditions and terrain. It will be a full fendered dirt road style road bike with generator lights and all the great extras that go along with long distance brevets. I am currently working on a 29R then another 29R for a gentleman returning from Afghanistan and then onto the NAHBS bikes. This year the NAHBS bikes are exciting since I am good friends with 3 of the people and they were kind enough to wait out my queue and also be kind enough to allow me to display their bikes.
Got a new fixture today and wanted to give props to one of my personal favorites in the bicycle industry. Jeff Buchholz is a good friend and a killer tool maker. His stuff is always made to last and take a beating. Here is my new main tube mitering fixture. It is super clever and should speed up my main tube mitering by around 15 minutes per bike (maybe even faster once I am use to the system).
Next post will have to be about my new favorite little fellow Jack. He is growing at an insane rate and I look forward to each day with him.
