Yoko moved to the North Shore from Brooklyn and had two bikes up there; a single speed Bowery which was great in the city yet impractical in the Sawtooth Mountains, and a light aluminum GT road bike, that was too small. So, he asked me to put together a frame that would fit him, much like the GT. He climbed on the Maiden Voyage, my personal hand built road bike, and decided for fit and geometry, that was it. I picked a 2xOS tube set from Nova Cycle Supply to support his strong build (he was a bike messenger in NYC) as well as bigger tire options for out in the boonies, and got to work. Here's some pics from the process. I'll post pics of the painted frame and fork as well as the finished bike after it is finished next week.
