dude, yer gettin' a coast!
actually, i am.
met with johnny over the weekend. super cool guy working out of a humble and traditional shop in bushwick, brooklyn. he had a couple of finished frames and a number of frames in progress on hand, all beautiful work. his stems are the nicest i've ever seen...
anyway, i've decided on a pretty traditional track frame made with columbus zona and richie sachs newvex lugs. no brakes, no braze-ons, designed for 23 tires (which i'm questioning a little bit - do i allow for 25s?) and 165 cranks.
johnny is drawing up the blueprints and hopefully i'll have the numbers to mull over soon. the color will be the hardest part... looking at the imron metallic swatch book was amazing.
3-4 months to wait!
