"One Never Knows, Do One?"

Updating the update:

Andy had a rippingly good time at Eroica CA, so there's that.

Fizik is threatening to make us some leather-covered Aliante saddles, prototypes are in hand.

Kent Eriksen has been doing a great job of keeping us supplied during the past six months and it looks like we'll be continuing down this road for the foreseeable future.

Martin is starting a new lugged frame and fork in my size - stay tuned! Paint on the lugged frames will be by Russ, as always.

Peter is doing a great job with the custom carbon frames: he is currently riding Frame 1; Frame 2 is my size and is at paint with Curt Goodrich; Frame 3 is for pal Scott, is glued, awaiting wrap and curing. I think the carbon thing may be here to stay.

And last but not least, local builder Rodriguez/R & E Cycles has stepped up to build our welded steel frames right here in Seattle given that our own production hit a wall back in December. They do great work, turn things around quickly, painting and fabrication happen under the same roof (and in the same week!), and are willing to deal with my picky demands. We'll keep you posted but this could be a Good Thing and should see our wait times come down considerably.
