So I finished up Liane’s mountain bike this week. She wanted it this hi-visibility green so she doesn’t get shot at by any off-season hunters:
Here’s a closeup of the BB shell:
And here are those great Paragon disc dropouts:
Liane is going to be using mostly Sram XO components, with Avid brakes. The last hydraulic brakes I worked on were from Garrett’s 1972 VW bus so that’s going to be fun. She’s running a Sid fork which I took apart and painted the lowers to match:
I’ll post more pictures of the complete bike later this week. Also I painted two frames for other folks this week: first, this beautiful retro-style single speed made by Liane’s husband Mark:
And this road bike from Bowen Bicycle Works in Connecticut:
Keep them coming. Next week – Kipp’s s&s coupled road bike! stay tuned!
