Steel 29er boost fully rigid going to Colorado

This one is a nod to the very first few MTB frames that I made in 1984. The color is the same but the axle specs, geometry and features are much more in line with the present. 
The head tube is adorned by some Bocama heat tube rings and a gold Jen Green badge.
This one is not made for big tires as it will most likely be fit with 2.3".

Rim brake aluminum CX frame for Seattle area

This one has eyelets on the dropouts and dropper post routing so it is a little different.

Steel drop-bar MTB frame

Yes- this might look like a gravel frame but it is different. This one will take 2" tires and will maybe see some bike packing duties.It is heavily built and made for extreme trail conditions.


Another tracklocross frame

This one is identical to the last one- I still have to build a fork later this week.
The chain will be tensioned with an EBB from Squid bikes.The fork will be a straight blade crowned version, same as the last frame I built for las season. 2023 will see the WCSSCX race here in Santa Cruz so single speed CX will be the theme of this year. I hope to create a lot of these frames in 2023.

Steel road frame for long reach calipers and 700x32 tires

This one will also take fenders. I'll be finishing the fork in a few days and it will be off to the painter.

Steel gravel frame going to So-Cal.

This frame was ordered through a shop in Switzerland - Cycleworks. They order a couple of frames a year but this one is for a customer in So-Cal who works in the industry.  
Nearly all the frames ordered by this shop have steeper seat angles and slacker head angles than what I use . I'm thinking that maybe I should call this low and slack front-end style of frame "Swiss" geometry as there seems to be a trend toward bikes like this over there, at least the ones I build.

Small steel gravel frame going to Marin County

The main wheels will be 650x48 but there's a good chance that the owner will sub 700x32 wheels for pavement use. 
This one has a pretty light set of Columbus tubes as the rider is only 130 lbs. The frame will be mated to an Enve G-series fork with 50 mm rake to match the 71 degree head angle.
