Spring 2018 deliveries

It’s hard to believe the new year is nearly half over already.  It’s been a busy spring in the shop with lots of fun projects.  Here are a few of them.

Jeff and Wendy taking a very chilly first ride on their new tandem.

This was a fun project with lots of cool features like a thru-axle Schmidt dynamo front hub with automatic electrical connection integrated into the dropouts, a Rohloff 14 speed rear hub, and S&S couplers.

Mike’s Raleigh 650B conversion and repaint.

Mike brought me a ’70s Raleigh Competition for a make-over.  I added numerous braze-ons, 650b wheels, modern drivetrain parts, and a hub dynamo light system.  My friends at Forever Powdercoating matched the original color.

New bike day for Lesli!

Lesli got a new randonneur bike with all the bells and whistles- fully internal wiring for the lights, a stem top light switch, a usb charging port for her phone or GPS, and a set of low rider racks for light touring loads when she’s not doing brevets.  I look forward to seeing pictures of this bike all over the world.

John got a new bike too, and was in such a hurry to rush off to his first ride that I didn’t even get a picture.  Hopefully he’ll bring it back soon so I can take one because I think it’s pretty interesting- he chose SRAM etap wireless electronic shifting and it turned out to be the lightest randonneur bike I’ve built at 20.0 pounds with rack, fenders, lighting system, and pump!
