Welllllll, I never really went anywhere or stopped building bikes but I definately lost a little momentum as far as blogging energy goes.
I think what happened is that I put the flickr app on my phone to make loading photos easier here and just having one more computer thing to manage put me over the edge. All my computer energy went into loading photos and such over at the flickr site that I just didn't have it in me to do stuff over here.
On top of that, my regular work has been picking up and it's keeping me hopping.
I've finished a number of bikes since I last posted, my aluminum road bike has at least a thousand miles on it by now and my mtb is a total champ. I've built another bike for a local rider Brandon B. who is anxiously awaiting for his niner to come back from the powdercoaters and be built.
heres some pics of the two orange bikes. The color was a total choke, the plan was for it to be white base coat with an orange sparkle suspended in the clearcoat. This is not what happened.
What we ended up with is what i'm calling 'electric adobe' or 'sparkly terracotta'
It's not bad at all but just not what I wanted.
