To kilo mockingbird

Here is a kilo frame in the raw. I'm building it for a guy who want's to set a new world record. If he does, everybody can get rainbow bands on their Rock Lobster track frames....I'll even provide them no charge.

shiny bits to fool the primitives

Here are a couple of frames that were polished instead of painted. Aluminum can look like chrome if you use enough elbow grease. One of these frames is mine and I am looking forward to having a geared mountain bike for the first time in six months or so. I guess you can't single speed all the time, although I wouldn't mind if that were the case for me. Santa Cruz is the place to ride one gear in the woods.

pretty in pastel

'Cross season is almost here ad some people have gotten their orders in very early. Here are a few frames that will no doubt be seen in the bay area races.

The latest and greatest

Here's a custom Team Carbon with Dura Ace and Ksyrium SL wheels. The special GX-2 frame creates a bike under 17 lbs. that still feels like a bike.

happy birthday, sis.

Yes, I have a sister who lives down in smoggy L.A., our home town. A month or two ago she gave me her old bike to do a tune up on. I did a much more complete tuneup than usual.....I built her a new bike. Some of the parts from the old bike were used but the result was about 4 lbs. less than the old bike and lower gears more suited to the Hollywood Hills near her home. Here are pictures of the first ride up to Mulholland drive, of course.
