    Haha! Been crazy busy! I haven't had much time to even surf the net for much besides posting to social media. I've been uploading everything to the Flickr. I'm a little worried that I'll post an epic-computer-meltdown amount of pictures to FNL.... It might set some satellites on fire and explode some remote servers in the desert somewhere... But I'll do it. Prepare thyself by stockpiling balms and salves.

    A quick "thanks" to the crew for welcoming me to the shop yesterday. Kevin, Jamie and Tyler is was great to meet you all. I loved the tour and enjoyed seeing the space. Not too big, not too small. Some new tech, and lots of old tech. Perfect.

    To any of you out there considering a Firefly, a shop visit will finalize the decision for you. I'll be getting on the list myself in the next few days!

    Yoiks!

    Tyler, how many of the Bones bikes have been delivered to date?
    Is there a common thread as to the type of buyer, or are they all over the place with regards to geography, rider type, etc?

    Hey Matt, So far 6 have been delivered and there are a few more at various stages of completion. The part that takes the longest, by far, is the paint process. Eric Bones takes his time with each one, giving each the special attention to detail that make it unique yet recognizable.

    As far as the type of rider... the Bones Project has attracted some serious road riders from around the globe. People that are serious about steel, respect and appreciate art and love a limited run project.

    The beauty of making custom bikes, not just The Bones Project bikes, but all of them, is that you come to realize that there really isn't a type of person that orders a custom bike, or even just rides bikes in general. Cyclists are so unique and come from such different backgrounds. Cycling is a type of unifier that spans classes, races and sexes. I feel that there are only a handful of activities that bring so many different types of people together in this way.

    On that note ::

    :: Classic Sideshots :: A Retrospective :: Part X ::





















    As I look back through all of these classic side shots I can almost feel each person's personality peeking through in the completed build.

    Tyler, seems like you guys are just killing it all the time, solid work. I'm sure I speak for most of the folks on this forum when I say I'd love to own a Firefly one day!

    How many bikes are you guys turning out every week typically? Mostly ti it seems, with the occassional stainless?

    Hey, Thanks Dustin! We are on track for 120ish bikes this year. So about 2.5 bikes per week average. Not bad for the 3 of us (Jamie and I in the shop and Kevin up front). We had an employee for a short time (about 2 months) but her schooling took priority so we are looking to fill her position in early February. We primarily do Titanium or Ti-Carbon bikes. I'd say the stainless is about 5% of our output.

    ^^ Pick me! Pick me!

    One day I'll have a Firefly in Ti. Utter perfection. IMHO.
