    To a frame every single one of them getting to and then past this first operation with my torch, invariably leaves me empty. Ive concluded that the lower head lug joint is so important to the integrity of the bicycle that I do this one first. Done well, I know that whats left in its wake ought to go smoothly. And that the bicycle frame will feel good and have a long life. But very little after this task gives me the same satisfaction. Im on autopilot for the next few days, brazing this or dressing up that, while trying to imbue all of it with the same love and attention I give to this first area. On some commissions I can sustain the energy almost until Im done. On others, I can mail it in. For me, it took many years decades, actually to be able to do what I have to with trust. I dont analyze whats happening in front of me. I just go to my bench and make it happen.

    Perhaps very wishful thinking on my part but I'll be first in line when you decide to formally release a collection of your writing. Very enjoyable to read. Thanks for sharing them.

    I'm torn between posting a .gif of Kermit singing "It's Not Easy..." and posting a .gif of Linda Blair puking pea soup. :)

    Little different but the olive oil green sort of reminds me of the old Legnano green of the 60s. I have a Hampsten jersey in that color from a few years back. Love that color, tip of the Chapeau to you Mr. Sachs. Well done.

    Thanks, all.
    For 2022 RSCX has six different and distinct art files for the team bicycles, all meant to work as a whole.
    Launch was last Sunday.
    Pics to come soon.

    You clearly never underestimate the power of harnessing an abundance of creativity into objects that were developed without compromising an ounce of detail…well done.

    For as long as I can remember, bicycle racing reminds me of boxing. It's old school. Rooted in the working class. My sport is a pre-war, a pre-motorsports, and a pre-television ordeal at the core. It's governed (for the most part) by retired racers who manage the teams, and drive the cars that follow the events. These people, mostly older men, keep things in a state of arrested development. I follow it with all its foibles and transgressions, and try to enjoy the entertainment nonetheless. Its a chore.

    My trade is a part of the puzzle. In my impressionable years I considered framebuilders to be the cornermen for those inside the rings. Coaches. Cutmen. Handlers. The guys who told the fighters what to do and what not do. In my mind, and this is a construct that perhaps few share - the men who designed and fabricated these bicycles each had their own following, racers who'd depend on them to supply machines that could lead them to the finish line ahead of all others.

    But there's no disputing that a relationship, a trust, existed between the framebuilder and the rider. I don't remember ever NOT wanting to be part of this construct, be it real or simply the fantasy that keeps me looking forward. To make a better bicycle so that those in whose corners I sit will have the best tool for the job - this is why I stand at the bench each morning.

    RSCX is an organically grown, farm to table, craft brewed, wrinkle resistant collective of pals. For over forty years, weve planned and schemed and lived for CX. No motor homes, or Sprinter Vans, and with none of the vestiges associated with pro life (we DO have a tent but I think it leaks), we keep coming back for more. The 2022 season has begun. This weekend at Rochester will be our first event where well all be together since the August Lunch n Launch. Come say hi and find out why, as Frank Underwood so succinctly put it, We don't submit to terror. We make the terror.
