Roy - Done

Last nice dry day of the year? Forecast says probably.

Roy - almost done

Ran outta steam to finish the brazeons tonight, but she's got a date with the powdercoater (in Beanspeak, this is "powdy cookie") tomorrow. Then we have a date with using small cute children in costume to collect free candy!

BTW, after about 35 miles of singletrack, I can say that A) the Chupacabra front/random 2.0 back tire combo is weird as heck but super fun, and B) tire works fine on a Crest rim as far as I can tell - even down at <15 a="" actually="" best="" blow="" corners.="" doing="" don="" get="" have="" i="" in="" it="" me="" mile="" my="" nbsp="" of="" off="" out="" p="" past="" prefer="" profile="" psi="" ripped.="" sidewall="" since="" sticking="" t="" the="" think="" this="" to="" tread="" way="" with="" you="">

Rad. Not an ironic-name fan, but rad.

Um...Jim, where my Hugos at?

Should be room in many suspension forks. Maybe a warranty-voider, though.

Stuff still happening at WWHQ...

Not much blogging with the nice fall weather and the still-dry trails calling my name. Might even get a birthday ride this year, we'll see!

Clint's coupled 650b with every imaginable brazeon.

Mike shows off his silver brazing chops.

Curvy bridges are a PITA, but they look neat.

Quick pic for Colin

The nigh-stupidmobile! Super short stays and offset rear end, should be nimble as heck but maybe still semi-stable at speed. Geometry geek-out tomorrow if I have time.

White background, decent lighting, and I somehow still manage to suck at taking photos...

Random updates from Park City

In no particular order:

-I'll be asking all customers to pay for their parts up front when we have a parts order finalized. I've operated on a handshake-and-trust basis for 11 years but I have someone who has abused that trust (to the tune of almost $9000) and I can't take the risk of that happening again. My apologies. Be prepared to pay for your parts before I order them. Anyone know a good lawyer in CO? :(

Our new table is sick. Now we just need chairs. And friends. 

-Framebuilding classes are full for 2014. I will take reservations for 2015 but no more students this year unless you've already been in contact.

Free performance bamboo socks with a frame helps dull the pain of price increase.

-Frame prices will rise to $1700 on Jan 1st. I'll remind everyone again before then, but if you want to lock in current pricing, you gotta get your order in in the next couple months.
