The Latest Build

We just built this Quiring Stainless Steel road bike for Jeff. The Bike is built with fat tire clearance for added versatility. Sram Rival components, a BB30 and 32mm tires round out the build. The rig tips the scale at 18.95lbs exactly as you see it picture.

I Just Customized a Kickstand!

This very special kickstand will grace my YiPsan hybrid which will be displayed at the 2011 NAHBS.

I customized this Greenfield kickstand by filing off graduations, wording and as many of the imperfections as possible. Next up it was polished and just for fun I replaced the alloy pin with one made of brass.

If you are going to NAHBS this year keep an eye out for my bike and while your at it why not vote for it :)

If you can not make it to the show check out this here blog for live posts from the show.

I also started a Flickr Photo Pool for the show.

Can you tell I am getting excited?!?!
