    Decompressing after a great Oregon Handmade Bicycle Show- thanks to all of the sponsers, attendees and exhibitors for making it a great time. I met several new VSalon members this year, too!

    Surprise (to me) break out success of the Winter booth? The hard working (and freshly built up) knife sharpening bike! My highlight was watching the very happy new owner ride it out at the end of the show!

    Here is a photo from (and a link to) the new gallery-

    I've had a bit of a chance to sit back after the weeks leading up to and the weekend of the Oregon Handmade Bicycle Show and organized a few of my thoughts on my blog.

    Thanks to everyone who came out and made it a great time. As you find photos or publish your own work on flickr, blogs, etc, please send me links and I'll get those up on the show site.

    Life's events prevented me from going to the show. I met you at the San Diego show last year and wish I could have attended the Oregon show. All custom bikes are cool, but Oregon builders bring something special to the market, a real world utility that performs.
    I heart burnt bikes.

    Thanks- and sorry you missed it. Next year!

    I've been trying to highlight the work I brought to the show for folks that missed it. In addition to the knife grinder bike I also brought out a fun mountain town 28'er (I posted a few shots on this last FNL).

    Here is a quick write up.

    It's also currently available as a frame kit or bike.

    The 28'r is the bike I wanted for tons of xc races in the late 90's.
    Those bastards at Spooky never let me have anything nice though.
    45c tires are wicked frikkin fast.

    Patrick Brady at Peloton contacted me recently about participating in their "Artisans" Q&A column. I have met Patrick at a few of the shows, and it was fun to continue the conversation. Thanks to Mr. Brady and Peloton.

    Thanks for the good words, guys.

    I've received a few questions about the recent FNL posting. I did a blog post to fill in some of the blanks.

    Wrapped up the San Ume frame- details on the blog (and a bunch of detail and construction shots).

    Yup- I had a little booth with a few bikes/ frames. I used to work for Paul, and still help out with some of the larger sale weekends when he needs it.

    A couple of little tool photos seemed really popular this week, so I thought I would add them here.

    A shift boss guide:


    An 11th finger braze on holder:


    And just for fun, another shot of the Eisentrautish seat stay treatment (blending the fast back with little fillets) in the finished state. I like that the brass between the lug and the tube is visible at the top edge:


    With a tiny bit of luck I'll be snowboarding tomorrow, then back in the shop Saturday.

    Happy New Year!

    To celebrate the New Year and the new winter to Toronto, Dandyhorse (blog) is running a "Winter cycling with Winter Bicycles" double feature.

    First up is a Q&A revolving around some of what I consider when building an all weather urban bike, and some functional features that can be incorporated when setting your existing bike.

    Fixednwinter- thanks for the heads up! Fixed turned me on to Dandyhorse, a great local advocacy and lifestyle magazine for the YYZ rider.

    In addition to the work, January has also been a busy time with shop visitors. I’ve had several local clients come through picking up and dropping off work, done a few consultations and fittings and met with several of my local industry friends. Just yesterday Ian and Andy (from Rouleur and Privateer respectively) popped in as part of their US visit.

    Ian wrote a few words about the visit, and Andy busied himself taking photos:


    It was a pleasure to chat about their visit, what I’m up to with Winter, and some of my thoughts on the current state of frame building and being an active bike designer/ manufacturer in the US.
