Recent happenings

There’s been lots of activity here lately so I guess I should share some of it!

Kirke picked up his new bike.  Thanks to pal Theo for taking this photo of Kirke and me.

Here are a couple more shots:

Just before Kirke arrived with his saddle which matches the bar tape.

Downtube logo and small front rack-plus-lowrider.

kwrackdetail

Rack detail. These are made to order for each bike and fit only that bike. Kirke opted not to get a dyno hub and headlight right now, but the fork has Schmidt SL dropouts and the rack has a headlight mount, just in case.

You can find all the build shots for this one here.

Robert’s single speed road bike left for powdercoat.  He’s getting a pretty cool build with Curtis Odom hubs, Herse cranks, Mafac Competition brakes, Nitto bar, stem, and seatpost; and a Berthoud saddle.  Expect photos when I get it assembled.

I’ve finally started building the racks for Ian and Sierra’s tandem:

Small front rack roughed in.  It will get removable lowriders too.

The next project is Mark’s winter single speed road bike, all in stainless.  This will be a fun one with a full KVA Stainless tubeset, fork blades, and a stainless lugged stem.

I’ve also found the time to play a little bit too and get re-acquainted with my mountain bike.  Here are a couple shots from my last ride.  I got on the trail a little before 6:00am and was done before 8:00.

Mount Rainier, Mount Adams, Mount Saint Helens.  Well worth getting up early and riding in the moonlight for awhile to have this view all to myself!
