New spring paint jobs

Here are some of the latest frames I’ve painted the past two weeks here at the shop. Some also had small alterations as well. Spring is clearly the time to have your frame painted. It happens every year and I forget how much time I spend in that booth in March. Now that I’m out of there and back at my bench, the next frameset should be done by early next week (as well as Benno’s fork and a couple more paint jobs).



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Henry’s classic road frame

This is Henry’s second frame from me! He’s the only other person out there with a Circle A BMX frame and a road frame. Definitely a well-rounded rider. I first met Henry in New York at a flatland jam. Super nice guy from the west coast. He went the ornate lugged route with the Richard Sachs Newvex series lugs, crown, and bottom bracket. The paint is a red candy over a red-tinted silver. Defnitely has another dimension in the sun.

What happens when you drive into a parking garage with your bike on the roof. Nothing good. Except the opportunity to get a “new” bike. We can rebuild it. We have the technology. This bike has a new down tube and rear seat stays, and a new paint job. And now it’s back on the road and heading south from Philly to Florida!


 
 

Spring time means fun bike time! A bunch of us did a full moon ride down the bike path to Bristol. We had lights but didn’t really need them. Moon shadows abound! Another group did a little ride around the Little Compton area. We ended up on some trails heading down to Simmons pond. It just the start of a wonderful riding year.
