HEAD FOR THE MOUNTAINS

March 15th, 2008

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!

    Dude,
    Look at those welds! Yeah, they look pretty good. The s&s couplers, hot hot hot.

    You haven’t called in awhile, so I assume the brakes went alright and putting the fork back together was a breeze.
