Mike’s cross bike is finally done after lots of lug carving, crazy paint masking, and the most precise lug lining you’ll ever see. It had been 5 months since I built a lugged frame (the last 5 frames were fillet brazed) but it wasn’t hard to get back into the swing of things. This bike is going to be Mike’s winter bike as well as cross bike. Winter is far from over so he’ll have plenty of chances to ride it. The snow is melting away on the trails as I type so I anticipate this bike getting muddy very soon. The bike is a kelly green with lime green lugs and gold accents all over, in case you didn’t notice. The ever talented Josie Morway did the lug lining. I think if any other bike painter saw her work, they’d hire in a second. Next up is Adam’s BMX!
