    While at NAHBS, I got this email from a customer:

    Hi Dave,

    Hope you are well; I wanted to give you an update now that I've had the chance to get some miles in despite the terrible riding weather.

    The bike is just amazing, The front end is responsive and goes into the line willingly and the disc brakes work seamlessly with the fork. I get so much output from the rear triangle and the bottom bracket is stiff yet the frame has a lot of overall compliance. Its hard to put my finger on, but there were times I forgot it was steel and thought I was on carbon. Most importantly, it felt familiar to me right away.

    I can't wait for the weather to cooperate a little more so I can get some more miles logged on it. I'll get some pics from the road and send them along.

    Thanks,
    Greg

    On a recon ride, one of the first frames I ever made, still in action.

    The last few months have been interesting, with the sale of our house, renting another (very small) house for two months, and finally having the new house purchase go through. My new shop space is coming together... Finally.

    Skáldskaparmál from Snorri’s Edda says: “Then he gave the hammer to Thor, and said that Thor might smite as hard as he desired, whatsoever might be before him, and the hammer would not fail.”

    I've mentioned my low-tech crimping method before - my vise, half a tube block, and the top of a pipe wrench that I've had for the better part of 30 years. I had to smooth out the casting parting line on the wrench head, but it's worked out pretty well. I finally snagged a few action shots. These are pre-bent chainstays from Nova, going on a 1x MTB, with 650b x 2.35" tire clearance.
