    Default Rapha photographer pays a visit

    A couple of weeks ago Daniel Sharp stopped by the shop to shoot some photos for Beloved and Rapha.

    I wrote a quick blog post about the project and the bikes with a link to the Rapha article.

    Eric,

    That's very cool. I was just looking at the Rapha write-up of Beloved earlier today as I was clicking through the other "Builders and Bikes" on that site.

    What is the connection between Winter/Eric Estlund and Beloved? That Every Day bike looks fun. The little carry bar is a nice touch.

    I sometimes do contract work with/ for other companies doing weird one off stuff, special projects, small production etc. This is a similar case. I'm helping James and Matt at Beloved put together a series of dealer bikes while offering some advice on production, scalability, streamlining and consistency. I just finished up the first three bikes for Mellow Johnny's, and will be making another few sets shortly. These are Beloved designs build for them by me/ Winter.

    Better to be ruined than to be silent atmo.

    are some of the frames on their site from taiwan or elsewhere out east atmo?
    one or two have a decidedly manufactured style to them.

    I don't know the entire history, but my understanding is that all of the bikes thus far have been produced here in Oregon- as is the plan for future growth.
