It sure has been busy around here the last couple of weeks, and I hope it doesn’t let up anytime soon. I got Laura’s frame back from paint a few days ago. Brian at da Vinci Tandems did a great job. Laura’s boyfriend, Scott, will add some box striping and paint in the lug cut outs to match the vanilla frame accents. Traditional lugged bicycles is what drew me into framebuilding in the first place, and 9 years in, my lug-love seems to only be growing.
