Twin plate fork for one less car

Awhile back Cole from One Less Car asked me to make him a fork for a track frame of his. It took awhile...but its finally done.

I sent it off to Keith Anderson for paint with the vague instructions that it should be white with some sort of black and white checkers on one leg. Here is the result -

Tuesday, September 18, 2007 frame end collection is complete!

Received a batch of frame ends today - vertical road ends and fork ends.

My Jonny Cycles frame end collection is now complete and I'll now be using my ends on all frames. Track, horizontal road, vertical road, and fork ends. All have stainless faces and accept stainless M5 bottle mounts for rack/fender mounts.

Reynolds 953

I've finally finished a Reynolds 953 frameset. I made a light touring frameset for my friend (and owner of Jonny Cycles #2) Kevin in Sacramento. It turned out quite nice, check it out -

The 953 tubing is light stuff, although really you can get pretty close with the less expensive and easier to work with True Temper S3 (its within a few grams). So if you want a light frame I'd prefer to use normal (non-stainless) tubing, but if you want a light and shiny frame 953 is a good way to go...since the only other option is chrome.

Since it's expensive material, difficult to work with, and time consuming to finish it makes for an expensive frame. If you want an un-painted Reynolds 953 version of one of my frames I'll do it for and extra $550.
