Wow, you must be well......

connected to get your name as the S#. Judging by the frame size, I am guessing you are a bit taller than most too.

That is a really nice looking bike.

Thanks all,

It is a dern nice looking bike, but she was almost sublime. Transcendent. Supreme.

During the build process I got the following email from the folks in Golden:

"Oh Yeah, check it out. We originally went with the traditional alloy seat stays that offer an excellent ride....but then we said "Hey, it's Anthony" so we decided to style you out with the all new, custom, extremely light, highly compliant, super sexy and might I add, also highly top secret seat stays. (see attachment 2)"





"

Here's ze plans:

That thing is cool. As a MTB/Road racer I still prefer a straight aluminum frame for road racing. I've ridden pretty much everything and still go back to light, stiff, ALL aluminum race frames. Rockin a Yeti at the start line would be cool, I'm currently on an aluminum Titus.

Are those DWF's jigs?

I wonder how difficult it was to engineer the jigs for the new style seat stays?

Alex Trebek: And what letter did you write down Mr.Goldblum?....The number two"
Jeff Goldblum: "Ah ha, my friend! The letter two!"
Alex Trebek: "No, two is a number, Mr.Goldblum."
Jeff Goldblum: "I...I can't read or write."

Want another one?

Want another one?

I'm moving beyond my Yeti fetish and just upgraded to an Opera. Loved the yeti, Just too old for rigid alu frames and there were certain "alignment" issues that made it scary when you hit 35 MPH.

Nice frame though. I like it. I saw they turned out a few 'cross frame for a select few last year. I would've liked one of those although I still prefer a steel 'cross frame.

Those are not DWF's jigs - though they should be. DWF's jigs can be seen here:

www.anvilbikes.com

You should've told them that if they were really serious about building your bike, Anthony, they would've done so on an Anvil fixture. ;)

Sweet ride nonetheless - better write that SN down and save it in a safe place. :)

Hey, always good to see a fellow tequila enthusiast out here. I love Espolon, its such an underrated tequila (same distillery as Corazon, which is generally more expensive).
Back atcha.

I wish I still could find Chamucos. And it's about time for he annual purchase of La Reserva de la Familia.
