First of all, sorry, I don’t have more interesting pics to share yet. As you can imagine, the painter has been slammed with work as the handmade bike show draws near. But the fork is painted and back in Steve’s hands as of today, and I can go pick everything up tomorrow! I’ll just have a few days to enjoy it in my hands, though. I’ll be building it up over the next few days, then it will go back to Steve for the trip to Sacramento for the bike show. While waiting for everything to get done, I’ve just been thinking about the build, and making sure I have all the tools and parts I need to do a proper build. I won’t have much time to make those frantic last minute trips to various bike shops looking for stuff like inserts and olives for Shimano brake hoses. I believe I have all my ducks in a row and I’m really rearing to go!
Got the frame, fork, and stem today. The frame is a beauty, and I’m so happy with how the fork turned out. The color is great. Looks a bit reddish in the photo, but it’s a really nice classic orange and cream. Rick at D&D really nailed it!
