VIVA LA REBA, AJ, JEN’S 26″ TOURER & MORE

June 3rd, 2009

So certainly the most dramatic event of our open house was Reba taking delivery of what she calls “the coolest f**king bike I’ve ever seen.” And are you going to argue? No, I didn’t think so.

Stealthy and sleek, it’s got metallic black lettering on black, save for the silver wheat on the seat tube, a loving nod to Reba’s home state of Oklahoma. If you can’t make out the script on the top tube: “To the place I belong…” Note the leather Brooks bar tape – the Brooks saddle is on it’s way.

I also sent out AJ’s tourer, here are some shots of that, and of the built up bike in it’s natural habitat:

Also, Eric finally rode away on his belt drive commuter:

I painted an Icarus for Ian:

And finally, I started a 26″ touring bike for Jen. It’ll primarily be welded, but with old-school capped seat stays:

Next: Finishing Jen’s, and Jascha’s disc-brake single speed!

    Chris,

    What is the braze on on the lower seat tube of AJ’s bike? The slotted thing sticking out to the drive side?

    Yup, it’s single speed. Eric loves it – “No noticeable friction. Still riding silky smooth and silent. This bike is the closest thing to a magic flying carpet that I’ll ever have.” So there you have it! Two big thumbs way up.
