The New Sequoia

When I went to work for Mike Sinyard as SPECIALIZEDís first bicycle frame designer, I created the iconic SPECIALIZED Sequoia sport-touring bike. Those original Sequoias developed an avid following among experienced riders. Even today, 30 years later, riders contact me for information on their newly acquired classic Sequoias, found on ebay or elsewhere.
Now, with Mike Sinyards blessing, I am recreating the Sequoia frames. Please visit this link for images and more: http://www.lighthousecycles.com/lighthouse-sequoia/
Thanks for viewing,
Tim

Good thing you have Mike Sinyard's blessing. (I'd get it in writing.)

I was thinking the same thing before I read your post. A Blessing Signed and Notarized.

*EDIT*


Never mind, I refuse to be the third person in a "Monday morning pile-on" again.

Props to you man, I will check out your stuff later today!

Great looking bike...and a great idea to resurrect the name.
Between the price and the provenance, I'll bet it sells really well!

Beautiful! A great idea. What a pedigree these frames will have. I wish I had a signed work of art in the Smithsonian! Very impressive stuff, sir.

Absolutely beautiful. Nothing more to say that would be worthy.
