    Lugged Moyer is my new pron

    Anyone have one? Seen one? Ridden one? They are so hot, how's the quality? Not like I could ever afford one, but one can dream, can't he?

    They really do make a hell of a frame.

    http://www.moyercycles.com/gallery.htm

    Dig through that for a bit.

    I don't really like their loopy seat stay bike though.

    It's HIS not their. Whitney Moyer is a lone man making those frames and they are absolutely beautiful. Each one a masterpiece. The prices are not that bad for what it is. Someday...

    Everytime Whitney would release a custom frame for a customer all the bike riders in austin would talk about it and drool. I have seen about 3 of his frames in person and they are just getting better each time he builds a new one. He is a great guy, super friendly and talented.

    Please tell me those are custom drilled 16-hole Deep Vs to custom Paul hubs on Kennethalan's bike. (I will only be a little disappointed if it's just a lighting thing.)

    probably 16 spokes on each side of the hub...

    Yeah, those are definitely thirty-two spoke wheels. I think you're just not seeing the other sixteen spokes.

    Definitely a lighting thing.. you can see the nipples coming out of the rim in between the visible spokes.

    But 16h wheels would be hot as ****.

    They are pretty sweet, I freaking love the polished lugs. I have to say though, I'm not a big fan of the twisted stays.

    last track bike on the gallery is mine. it looks a bit different now - many scuffs (sem's paint job wasn't very durable), campy pedals w/some double straps, black superturbo on a suntour superbe pro post, fully wrapped bars. i ride it downtown most days unless it's raining. my best-fitting and most loved bike by an order of magnitude. the craftsmanship is superb. i like talking about how much i love my bike - feel free to pm me w/any specific questions, and if i can't answer them, i'll point you in whit's direction.

    my only qualm is that i have to talk about the bike 2-3 times a day w/the random people who come up to compliment it; can get irritating when i'm trying to stacked up at work and in a rush. oh yeah, and sometimes people get a little too touchy-feelie w/it.....

    yeah, if you only knew what i do to your bike when it's locked up outside my building...hehe, just kidding. old guys always wanna talk about the bob jackson...that's why i put the hot pink benotto tape on the bars, to make 'em not wanna talk to me so much.

    maybe i'll get the landshark guy to repaint my bike and tell him to go nuts. i can only imagine what he'd do, but i'm pretty sure it would turn off any and all retro-grouches.

    edit: i know, i know, he only paints landsharks.

    The blue Moyer in the gallery belongs to me (xB). Just got back from a ride, as a matter of fact. I love it. It's likely the best bike I'll ever own. Ditto what everybody said about Whit being a consummate craftsman and a real fell sweller. He makes great bikes, and I always look forward to seeing what he's got up his sleeve.

    I think the bikes look great, but the seat stays kind of kill it for me. I hate that twisty ****, it's too busy.

    I guess it's a good thing he didn't build it for you. If you ever saw it in person you might reconsider your position on twisty ****.

    Occasionally I think there's a bit too much eye candy on his bikes, but for the most part they're effing gorgeous. And, his clients ride the hell out of their bikes.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that's Whitney Moyer's personal bike, isn't it?
