CHARLIE! also, forks!

June 30th, 2010

But first, a Dawson update; last you read, he was on his own (well, he and his Circle A), westward bound – and the exciting news is, he made it to Portland! Oregon, that is! I hope to get him to write down some of his experiences, watch this space!

Meanwhile, I built a cyclocross bike for our friend Charlie at Bikes Not Bombs; here it is:

It features a mix of Dedacciai Zero, True Temper OX Platinum, and Columbus Zona tubing; Richard Sachs lugs; and a full complement of rack & fender mounts:

  

The red has a nice subtle metallic that you can really see in this last one:

  

  

I also built a fork for Joe; he wanted a nice tight-radius bend, and mounts for Paul Racer M brakes, as well as a Nitto rack. He sent me the rack so that I could get the mounts positioned perfectly; also I had to machine down standard canti posts for the Pauls. The last shot is right after clearing, with tape still on the posts & steerer:

   

Next: Matt’s cross bike! More forks!
