Ok. It’s been a busy couple weeks. First, Matt’s rehabbed Schwinn Twinn tandem went out the door. It’s gorgeous and he’s been brightening the landscape on it all over town. Note the roller brake, custom cable routing, and internal 8 speed hub:
I also shipped off Sam’s coupled touring bike. Here are some shots of the complete bike, and how it looks packed up in it’s travel box. And it’ll fit in there with all the components too!
I also built local yokel Katie a TIG welded commuter bike; she’s going to run it as an 8 speed, with just a rear derailleur. More pix of that to come. I’ve been painting it, but here are some shots of the construction:
Scott came by with the complete Russ Denny that I painted for him a while back. Here are some shots of that:
And finally, Kipchoge of the Ginger Ninjas came while they were touring the east coast with their pedal-powered and -transported good time roadshow, and with Tom and Mike from Recycle A Bike, I helped him straighten a bent dropout on one of their eight (!) Xtracycle equipped bikes! Catch them if you can-can!
