We were sad to see Dan move to Portland but it’s totally a good fit for him. Dan’s a guy that rides all the time. For his job, commuting, fun, etc. And what better place to ride than Portland. I hear they have lanes specifically for bikes over there! And bike racks! And a bike shop on every corner! Oh well, Providence has a ways to go and I understand if he doesn’t come back. I’ll be sending Dan a little piece of his home state soon. This gun metal beauty is for him and will hopefully make its way over to Alpenrose for a lap or two. I made some modifications to the classic LC19 fork crown by carving the edges and filling in the cutouts. I also did the same with our svelte little dropouts. It made for a very solid, flowing frame and fork.

Next up is Mike’s lugged cyclocross/winter bike. I’ve been in lug carving mode for a while now.
