Last of the red-hot Schnozolas !

 This is one entirely built in Bruce's shop-except for the fork which was built in my shop. This bike will fit someone 6'1". I have had it since Bruce closed his shop at the end of last month. I really need the room so Bruce and I decided to power the price to $ 2,900. The original price of the bike at the handbuilt show was $ 4,500. The bike has not been ridden and has Bruce's last set of cantilever brakes and racks. This is a one-of-a-kind bike that was built by two of the oldest and most experienced builders on the planet. It's a steal. Call me at 831-429-8010 or email me at if you are interested.

7005 race CX frame for Portland

This frame has a new style head tube-the lower is 56 mm so the frame can take a King headset instead of the usual drop-in integrated setup on most of my aluminum race frames. This large frame might benefit  from the more robust wall in the head tube-not that any others have's just a basic truth in frame building that thicker tube walls are stronger.

Three steel gravel frames for Huntington Beach, Calif.

 This is my tig SL CX model , this time with painted-to-match Enve CX forks. All three of these are going to a shop in Huntington Beach, Calif.I'm hoping that these folks will have a fun time shredding in the So-Cal hills.

aluminum gravel frames for Bishop, Calif.

 This is a his and hers matching set of 7005 aluminum gravel frames with Enve forks. These frames will not only see some high-desert duty but will probably be on many cross-country adventures. The frames are very light and should feel easy to pedal on the rough stuff.
