I built this modern road frame so that Kevin could get back to riding after his last bike got smashed up in a wreck. Constructed with a mix of Columbus Megatubes and True Temper OX Plat. I did some seat stay sleeving for some subtle detail. Kevin built it up with the best! The bike comes to 16.5lbs with Campagnolo Super Record 80th, and ENVE.

I hear it rides pretty darn good too. Can't wait to see some pictures of it out on the roads of Atlanta, GA.

I sent a road frameset with custom stem to Blue Lug and this is what they built it into. I enjoyed doing the bi-laminate headtube here, this time with both "lugs" flowing onto the top and down tubes. Its a detail that identifies the frame as something special without being too flashy. That blue one white really came out crisp too.

The stem was made with some additional rise to make all day riding very comfortable.

I was so excited to make this frame for Lois! She was bitten by the cycling bug and has been riding daily so John Watson wanted to give her a bike upgrade. This one is a pretty simple frame with an ENVE fork and hooded dropouts from Paragon Machineworks with a replaceable hanger. Something that is becoming more common on my builds.

This frame also marks the return of Circle A Cycles to my paint team! So excited to be working with these guys again. Also, everyone should do the right thing and get their mom and Icarus.

This commuter/gravel grinder is for sale! I had the fork sitting around my shop for a while and decided that it needed a frame to go with it. The frame is now finished and ready for paint.

Can handle up to 700X32c tires without fender or a smaller tire w/ fender.

Options:
-Currently the fork has small ziptie mounts to accommodate a front generator hub wire, these can be left on or removed for a cleaner look.
-fender mounts, do you want them?
-rear rack mounts?
-complete build available

Price: $1900 includes single color paint by Circle A and a headset from Chris King. The fork will be blasted and painted to match. This price is $600 less than if bought custom, so if its your size snatch it up! Made by me with the same care and materials as all of my work.

Here is a sportiff style frame I sent to Japan a while back to be built up by the shop, Blue Lug. It was built to carry rear panniers and a lowrider front rack on occasion. The seat stays are sleeved and I also built the stem with an internal cable hanger.

The fork has internal wire routing for the light. There are no wires to mess with, the power goes directly from the hub into the pickup plate on the inside of the fork dropout.
