Hammerhead stem

The stem is painted and with its happy new owner, Squid from NYC. Check it out...

(more on the Velocity event later)

...I really like the stem and am doing a limited run of it in a few sizes. Same hammerhead shark style of course. Let me know if your interested in one.

Circle A Cycles and Jason's bike

I've always been interested in what's going on over at Circle A cycles. I've been lucky enough to see a couple of their bikes in person and really like what they've been doing.

A few days ago Emily over at Circle A sent me a link to this:

The paint scheme was inspired by Jason's bike

A pretty cool interpretation of Jason's original stocking (bows and seams) design.

Two Jonny Cycles frames for sale....

Two separate customers contacted me in the same week looking to sell their frames (odd coincidence?). If your interested, or want to know more send me an e-mail and I'll put you in contact with them.

Jonny Cycles stock frame prototype: I built this frame to display at the last North American Handmade Bicycle Show. This is Jonny Cycles TIG welded frame #1. Its never been built up. The customer bought it at the show and was going to race it, but one of his major sponsors filed for bankruptcy so now the frame is available again.
55 cm top and seat tube (center to center)
74.5 degree head tube, 3 cm of rake
75 degree seat tube
6 cm bb drop
38.5 cm chainstays
1" threadless fork
Campagnolo Chorus headset included
Excellent candy blue paint by Doug Fattic.
A steel at $1000 + shipping

The other bike for sale is one of my favorites. I built it for John in LA...but he's went though a career change and is no longer in LA and a nice around town fixie is no longer what he needs.

Here the drawing for the bike -

More photos here:

This bike has been ridden a fair amount, and although I have not seen it recently its in good condition.
