September 7th, 2010

It’s been a crazy summer at many levels, but that doesn’t mean we’re not making bikes, not to mention people! First off is this sleek cyclocross bike for Matt:


We also did a top-tube replacement and repaint on a Hollands; once again Josie did the fantastic lug lining:


And a raft of other paint work: Basso, Zancanato, Icarus:


And I fabricated some arm rests for Bob’s tandem recumbent trike:


But most importantly, my latest collaboration with Sara – please meet Oscar Henry! If you think I’m not already planning his first bike you are so wrong.

I’ll be on paternity leave for a couple of weeks, but then I’ll be back in action, starting with Holly’s touring bike! Watch the skies!

    Congratulations Chris and Sara! How about a lugged tricycle for Oscar’s first cycle?

    What is the little round thing at the bottom of the seat tube on the cross frame? Fender mounts?

    Thanks everyone! Joseph, that’s a pulley so he can use a bottom-pull front derailleur with his top-tube cable routing.
