last alunimum batch for 2008

The last batch of 2008 has leaked into 2009.....what can I say ? I'm a framebuilder-at least I show you pictures of the frames and don't make up some excuse that they are tied up at the painter......that's for later in the month. Hey, I'm going on vacation and I wanted these frames to be on the way out the door before me. This first one will eventually be in Vermont.......hope he has snow tires. It's a 26" wheel single speed mtn. frame with most of the ADG goodies, the upper yoke and the slider dropouts in 7005 aluminum.
Here it appears that the frame is looking longingly at the outdoors, wanting to get the heck out of my shop. Be patient, little frame-it will happen soon. This frame is for none other than our valiant team mechainc, Ryan. He has been wrenching for us for three seasons and is chomping at the bit to race cyclocross like the rest of the team. Cyclocross....it sells itself, I don't know......

I made Ryan's seatstays a little more curvy than stock so he could spot his very own bike at a glance...it gets confusing when there are upwards of 20 seafoam green team bikes in the tent and you are in a hurry to line up for your race : " Heck, which one of these green $%^*'s is mine ? Iv'e got 30 seconds to get to the start ! Welcome to the club , Ryan !

I got a BIG o'smile on my face right now. Them s-bend s-stays are s-weet looking. Started overhauling the engine, gotta get it ready to live up to this machine. Can’t wait to see it all dressed up in team kit.

Cool Rye! have to say that I'm envious! You'll have to let us know when you'll be racing so we can come and raise hell.
