be safe, ride and enjoy --
It's been quiet for a while, I've closed out all my projects and started moving. I moved in with a great girl, and the shop is getting moved as well. It's a smaller space, but I was kinda wasting space at the old shop anyway:)
I'll post pictures when I get everything situated.
Man, getting set up is taking longer than I thought.
I've got it arranged so that I can work a little, I'm finishing up a fork and hoping to get the 220v wired in the next couple of weeks.
Downsize the fantasy, I guess. Nah, fuck that. Imma call it getting down to fighting weight :)

I got a bit of subtle press this week. Vanderkitten CX pro Rebecca Gross is showing off her Edoz that I built her a few years ago, and some shoes or something. It hit Pearl Izumi's MTB account, as they are a sponsor.
It is great to read your story and see your growth progress.
Looking back to when you first started and comparing that to now, what do you recognize or see as your biggest step forward?
Also, being from the midwest do you feel that limits your exposure to potential customers? What I mean is, when someone may think small frame builder the thought of the east coast, Colorado, or Portland may be where where they associate the craft.
Man, I've been thinking about that question for a couple of days and I'm not sure I can pin down one event as the biggest step. It might be when I started connecting with other builders, here and directly.
As far as my location goes, I think you are right. Garro thinks you're right, too. He's told me a couple of times I'd do better a more bike friendly location and I definitely think he's right. I just can't seem to make the escape, I keep investing myself in Tulsa and it's people. Oh well.
Here's a little bit of goings on.
Yup, still here. This is what passes for proof;)
Strange things are afoot at the Circle K
Recent developments at Edoz HQ include T47 and thru axle options. Read all about it here, complete with a display of my mediocre photography skills.
