Saw a jaw-dropper at the OMHB show

Framebuilders Thinking about a custom frame? Lugged vs Fillet Brazed. Different Frame materials? Newvex or Pacenti Lugs? why get a custom Road, Mountain, or Track Frame? Got a question about framebuilding? Lets discuss framebuilding at it's finest.

Saw a jaw-dropper at the OMHB show

The Oregon Manifest Handmade Bikes (I think that's their moniker) trade show that happens in Portland every October.

Quite a few really nice bikes there Two of the nicest, simple and clean, were Andy Newman's Strawberries. No surprise, He had been making very nice frames for most of 50 years. But sharing the space with his bikes was one frame with a very fancy (and beautiful) paint job in so many layers I couldn't read the name. (I often have trouble reading fancy DT labels.) Under that perfect paint job was the cleanest lugged frame I have ever seen. Elegantly filed long point lugs. Crescent moon re-enforcements on the chainstay bridge. Fancy dropouts. And the seat cluster! Nice fluted seatstay caps. A flow and perfection that was exquisite. (A word that I have never used before in conjunction with a hunk of steel.)

THe frame? A DiNucci This photo is probably it (from roadreview)

Strawberry's builder is Andy Newlands. It was a Strawberry owned by a local racer back in the mid '70's that ignited my interest in the level of crafstmanship that could go into a frame. I'd never seen anything that beautiful in a bike frame before.

Thanks for the correction. I go by his shop from time to time as I have business weekly a half block away. He is a level-headed nice guy who does beautiful work.

Ben; Thank for the link. Many fine bike related pix. Served as a reminder that I need to just buy a set of 650B wheels/tires and design/build a nice frame around them. That has been on the get-around-to-it list for about 25 years so far. /K

That was the Oregon Handmade Bike and Beer Festival, sponsored by Hopworks. I was there also, though I didn't get as much time to walk around as I would have liked. We had a nice Sunday morning ride from Andy's shop before the show opened. Cool photo spread here:
