I have been informed I post too much about work and never put up photos of bikes with paint.

What category is a bike that is designed to enhance the fun factor of riding?

Full suspension bikes are a different style mtb and not for everyone. It requires a different riding style to maximize the suspension and effort. Once one is comfortable with this style the bike really begins to shine and offer a huge amount of fun. Objects become smaller and smaller and speeds get faster and faster (if you are cool with the speed and trails can handle it).

The power went out in our neighborhood on Saturday right when I was welding Matt's bridge.

I needed to leave with about 5mm's of welding left. Should get it done on Monday before noon.

Here are some more random shots.

I have been commuting about 4 days a week since the spring started and enjoy the fast paced commuter olympic racers.

I think it is kind of cool that I have more than one customer that can literally walk here and check out their bike.

Having the shop tucked away in the middle of a business/residential area has it pitfalls but it also has its neat aspects. More than a handful of my customers live so local that they can take a walk to the shop and see the progress of their bike. Today Dylan came by with his daughter but I was unfortunately just about to tack his bike. It did not look like much so I figured I would put up this photo so he can see it after tacking.

Seems to be a popular item. I think for good reason.

I once again want to show my respect for my painter Todd Eroh.

While I was soaking a tube after an internal cable guide I made this head tube.

It is for the Cane Creek zero stack headset. The next bike I am building is for a rather strong fellow and I think this is a great option for him. Also when he decides to get a suspension fork for the bike it can be taper 1.5" steerer. This head tube started out as 2" .188" tubing and had a crap load of machine work done. It is .055" wall now with the .125" rings on each end. Rather light and super strong with the large O.D. I think it looks kind of cool.

A while back Rody Walter of Groovy Cycle Works posted a blog entry about his new Lagun Vertical Mill.

Jeff's road bike underway.

I have been rather productive the last few weeks. I have a few projects that I really would like to find time for but these last bikes are allowing me to maintain some form of timely delivery. I fell behind last year and am trying to get somewhat back on track. There are a few tools I really want to make, this year I am building a few titanium beta bikes and I also have to build a bike for Jamie Swan who is building my new road bike. Somehow I will fit all this in while becoming a father as well. Should be a busy year!
