Anybody out there?

Just wondering if I am the only one that reads this blog. If this is true, it isn't a bad thing. I gives me something to do while my job search continues. If someone is actually reading my crap, please feel free to diss anything you don't agree with. I can take it.

mr. flynn-
Thanks for your interest in what I am doing. Fisher has been patiently waiting for this bike to come together for about 6 years now and I am just as excited that it is coming together as he is.
My framebuild list is only about 14 bikes deep right now, but at the rate that I build them, we may all be fossilized by the time I hit the end. That being said, and having somewhat of a feel for what you are looking for, I would highly recommend giving Steve at Coconino Cycles a call. I have a link on my blog to his site. He lays down the finest fillets that I have seen since Ross Shafer, and builds beautiful, straight, and thoughtful frames.
Give him a looksee. Also, Tony Pereira of Pereira Bicycles is a utah builder who relocated to Portland. You may want to give him a look too.

I can appreciate why Fish has been waiting--you really put a lot of yourself in your bikes.

Tony does make a very nice bike. I had forgotten that he used to be out there. I am also thinking about Fred at Wolfhound. He doesn't so much to the lugs, but he does some mean brazing. Both are in Oregon. I would like to keep the bike some where close to home or somewhere to which I frequently travel, Utah is such a place. I make at least one trip out there a year, usually in the fall, to stay with Fish and the family.

Anyway, I have seen a coconino--very nice stuff. I had forgotten about him. I don't have the patience to wait for a Vanilla, but I have thought about one of his Speedvagen cross bikes.

Thanks for the note, can't wait to see Fish's ride when it is done.
