For local luminary Ron I’m building a sometime tourer/all around towner; he plans to build it up with only the rear derailleur as an 8 or 9 speed, not unlike Katie’s. He’s rocking the very hot Richard Sachs lugs, and is running cantilever brakes. Here’s some pictures of the frame under construction:

I also repainted a great old Fat City Buckshaver for our friend Brian:

And finally I painted a new frame from Dwight at Bowen Bicycle Works in CT:

Next: finishing ron’s! coming up: belt drive mania!
