Too Much Silver Grasshopper

The other day a gentleman named Leo visited the shop. He asked a few questions about building a frame that he made many years ago. He built the frame at one of the first UBI frame brazing classes under the instruction of frame-builder-extrodonaire Albert Eisentraut. As Leo was brazing the pictured frame Mr. Eisentraut snuck up behind him and exclaimed "Too much silver grasshopper" hence the phrase on the top tube. This is one of two frames that Leo made and the craftsmanship is great. I guess he had a good instructor :)

The Bicycle Escape Home Brew

Just yesterday we got our TBE coffee straight from the bean roaster. Preliminary sips prove this bold and balanced coffee to make you faster, more alert and more attractive. Stop by and drink up and taste the happy. It's damn good (and hot)!
