    I just ran across this forum and I thought that I would share a picture of my Spectrum steel bike which I received in February of 1997. So it's 20 years old, on its third paint job but still riding strong. It is number 732, custom steel frame. My new titanium frame is expected to be ready later this month. Many thanks to Tom and Jeff.

    I like that steel fork T.K. That won't complain under stress.

    I'm intrigued by this one. Can you tell us anything about the rider? Back surgery at some point? I've had a few CoMotions in my stand with similar setups and all of them were owned by long time riders that had undergone some sort of fusion.

    Dustin:
    Actually, she's very healthy and flexable. She has always had upright bikes and hates drop bars. She also tends to head off into the woods on occasion. The other stuff includes; she is about 5'1" and therefore can't deal with bar drop in any case, her hands can't take much palm pressure for very long and until this bike, she always thought saddles were supposed to hurt. This bike is quite a bit smaller than it looks. Those wheels are 650B and the picture of the whole bike has it heading kind of up hill which makes the bars look even higher. In reality, the bar tops are only 9cm above the saddle top. Helps? Oh, and the total weight with pedals installed is exactly 16 pounds. Pretty cool.

    My awesome Spectrum single track racer running Boyd 44mm tubeless.

    And it goes really well on the road also.

    It's Friday, so we shipped another two today ... a frame set to Alabama and a complete bike out west.

    This guy is pretty traditional, with an official TREK color (pms186c) In order to nail the color for the customer and his shop, I had to get in touch with TREK to confirm the formula. They were very nice and helpful. Nice.
    img_0078.jpg img_0079.jpg

    This one seemed odd when it was in the paint booth, but once built up, it worked. The "color" is a HoK Bass Boat flake and in direct sunlight it is pretty blinding. That finish is shockingly time consuming as it requires about 17 clear coats to complete to a level of finish that I am happy with. My fingers weren't happy with the hours of sanding though.

    Is it a coincidence that you post this on "doughnut day"?
    It looks suspiciously like sprinkles.

    This one was a (very) long time coming. My youngest daughter is now thirty years old and June has been bugging me to build her a bike for years.

    IMG_0136 by TOM KELLOGG, on Flickr

    The finish is Jill's idea and she also came up with the idea of having an image one of her favorite mountains on the frame somehow. On a black bike, what better way than to airbrush a sunset onto a silhouette.

    Jeff's seat clusters are simply peerless.

    We can't get the original Cinelli bridges any more, so we have Albert Bold make them for us. Because they look better than anything else.
    IMG_0149 by TOM KELLOGG, on Flickr

    Jeff makes our lugs from scratch by hand. No compromises. They end up just so.
    IMG_0150 by TOM KELLOGG, on Flickr

    There is something about the old original Cinelli "SC" crowns that is just right. The lines are perfect.

    I had some "issues" with uploading these images a while ago when we finished up Pete's adventure bike. So I thought I'd do it properly now. As I upload these images, he is out somewhere in Montana riding south along the Continental Divide Trail.

    img_0091 by TOM KELLOGG, on Flickr

    Since normal, or even heavy steel fork blades aren't properly up to the stresses that modern brake calipers put on a fork, we make what we call a caliper foot to take care of any lacking torsional stiffness.

    I love the way Jeff does the little things.
    img_0097 by TOM KELLOGG, on Flickr

    Can't get enough of the detail shots. A lot of thought and work goes into this stuff.

    Amazing stuff as usual, Tom.

    That bass boat bike is doing nothing to sway me from my belief that every bike should be some shade of purple.
    "As an homage to the EPOdays of yore- I'd find the world's last remaining pair of 40cm ergonomic drop bars.....i think everyone who ever liked those handlebars in that shape and in that width is either dead of a drug overdose, works in the Schaerbeek mattress factory now and weighs 300 pounds or is Dr. Davey Bruylandts...who for all I know is doing both of those things." - Jerk
