Just finished up this looker!

Stainless lugs and my super cool hidden coupler install.

I guess it had to happen sometime, painted a Prince Tribute bike:

This one isn't one of my frames though, it's a Pivot 429.  Everything got deeply coated in pearl white, then the main frame got a bunch of purple candy coats.

Pivot linkages and logos are all pearl white, then I polished out all the pivot hardware.  Black fasteners just didn't look right on this one!

Up next, more fancy paint but on one of my frames...

2 bbc's on ebay

There happens to be 2 of my older frames on ebay at the moment.  I don't have anything to do with the auctions nor do I know the sellers.  Just passing along the word.  Potentially great deal on a 29er:

Curvy tandem

My current project is a rather unique tandem frame. Theres a lot of sweeping bends and different features. This is a preset prime example of what true "custom" frame building is about!  

Here's the main tubes in the front triangle. 

And here's my mocking up the dual rear laterals/ seat stays.  The frame has clearance for 3+" tires, so all the stays have nice curves. 

It will be a Rohloff bike with S&S couplers in those curved tubes. We're building it with dual eccentrics and Rohloff oem sliding dropouts to allow better be height adjustment when running different size tires. 

More pics to come soon!
