Christine and I just returned home from our honeymoon. Â We were married mid August and have been travelling in Italy, France, and Spain. Â The wedding was prefect and the honeymoon great. Â I am happy to be back in the shop and building again. Â The summer was extremely busy with framebuilding and getting ready for the wedding. Â Â I have done my best to keep up with email and phone messages but if I dropped some I apologize.
Here are some of the bikes that left here during the summer.
Marty’s new coupled tandem. Â This bike replaces a Mariposa tandem Marty built in the late 80’s. Â Paintwork was done by Noah at Velocolour.
Angus got a new commuter/tourer built with a Rohloff Speedhub. Â The Supernova light is powder by a Son Sl wireless dynamo hub.
Trevor picked up his OX Platinum tubed hardtail 29er. Â Â This bike has an Xt build kit with a Fox fork and No Tubes wheelset. Â The paint job was gloss black powder with green sparkle pearl in the clearcoat. Â Stunning in direct sunlight. Â More pictures on Flickr.
Barry just picked up his titanium sport touring bike. Â Â The grey ultegra group really to complimented the brushed titanium.
This is Jane’s new coupled commuter/tourer. Â Â She went with a flat bar configuration for comfort. Â This bike has some really sharp looking Velo Orange hammered fenders. Â The couplers were installed so Jane could take the bike apart to make it easier to pack in her car. Â It only takes a few minutes to take the wheels off and split the frame in two.
Nick’s commuter built with an Alfine 8 speed hub and Son Sl dynamo hub.
Taylor was getting ready for a trip to Germany with his new tourer. Â We used a new powder colour on his bike “Screaming Eagle Black Crinkle”.
