Nearly Up to My Eyeballs in Tires!!

I'm nearly up to my eyeballs in tires, except that my nose keeps getting in the way.
Thanks to all who pre-ordered; I will pack up and ship those orders tomorrow.

Those who haven't ordered yet - go to the store on our web page to order.

An Update on Tires...and Why We Love Customs

First Things First - Some News About Tires

Some of you may have pre-ordered the Rock 'n Road tires (if you haven't, you can go here to check them out). We estimated they would be here around the first week of June, but that was only half correct. They are currently sitting in customs in Southern California and should be cleared by next week (hopefully). In the meantime, we're going to keep the free freight going until we have the tires in hand. We apologize for the hold up, but it's out of our hands at this point. In the meantime, check out the review on All Hail the Black Market.

Second Things Second - Some News About Bikes

Cyclecross Magazine loved our fillet brazed cross bike and so do we. So much so that we're going to be doing more fillet brazed frames - the seamlessness of brazed joints is just beautiful. We'll be bringing this red bike (and a few others) to Oakland in July for a ride around Lake Merritt. Details will follow so you can put it on your calendar. Count your pennies too - we'd like one of you to take this red bike home - we have too many bikes at the shop anyway.

That's all the updates that we have from the shop right now - hope you're enjoying this weather as much as we are.

Building a Bike in your Kitchen

Saw this video this morning and it reminded me of the bike I built in "My Kitchen".
Check out this video of Graeme Obree building his record attempt bike in "His Kitchen" - it is a Great Video

I built my first Lugged Titanium frame in 2008 in my Kitchen because it was too cold in my shop for the epoxy to set up properly. 

By the way my bike won 2 huge trophies at the Portland NAHBS Show in 2008.
