¡Producto Acabado!

I know I have posted these two frames a billion and one times, but I just wanted to throw up these photos that Ube put up on his blog.  Finished product.  I'm proud to see my name on these bikes, now it's time to build a few thousand more.

¡QuĂ© bonita!

Cyclocross and a New Camera Make for a Great Blog Post

These things look way nicer when they're not filtered through a cellphone camera, huh?  

That super-extendo headtube belongs to a cyclocross bike I'm cleaning up now and I have a serious crush on the design of the frameset.  Can't wait to finish it and get some more pictures up here, but I have a ton of other shop-related-but-not-actually-building stuff that needs to be done that eats into bikes in a big way.  It should be all smoothed out and streamlined soon and these things will be moving through the shop even more efficiently.

And cyclocross season kicks off at Fort Ord this Sunday!  If you read this blog (do people actually do that?) and see me there, says "what's up".  I'll be racing on this mean machine (the first thing I ever built).

Purple Crit Bike Back From Coaters and Off to Ube

This thing's pretty handsome, the purple looks way nicer in person.  Dropped it and the blue one from below off @ Ube's Icecream Shop to get decals applied and a nice layer of clear.  Dude has a cool set-up out in the Sunset and looks like he's getting a lot of rad stuff done.

Found these in the mailbox today.  Going to get 'em on some bikes next week, hopefully.  Now I need to order some for super-gigantor 29er downtubes.

My first 1 1/8th" steerer fork.  I'm happy with how this fork came out, it's the nicest of the four nearly identical ones that I've recently built.  Nevertheless, I'm not doing this style again for a long while.  Time for more interesting stuff.
