Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I went to this in Houston over the weekend.
I had the extreme honor/pleasure of meeting/talking
with Don Ferris (Anvil Bikeworks), Richard Sachs (Richard
Sachs), Brian Baylis (Vintage Cycle Studios) and
Sacha White (Vanilla Bicycles) amoung others.

I managed to get about 5 or 6 nice photo's before my
camera went belly up.

Here is one of a headtube by Doug Fattic which is well,
drop dead georgous. I'll post more soon.

I'll bet even Sacha White was drooling over those Brian Bayliss lugs.

Just an FYI - this darn show delayed the completion of my frame for another week.

Rad, i'm sorry it delayed your progress but it was for a good cause. I got to ride that carbon monster downhill bike around in the parking lot. It rolled over everthing in its path like like a fat man on his way to mcdonalds. There weren't as many companies as i had hoped for, but the quality that some of these guys were showing off makes me want to dump my brand new 5200 for a hand made beauty. Great pics, I was starting to reget not taking my camera now i'll just save yours.

peace,
mike

Not close to me but I have a frame being sold to me. The website only has an email (waiting for reply) and there are a few references outside their web page on the web.

I'm just wondering hw much one should pay for an aluminum frame from a shop like his?

This may be a good place to ask this question. I just picked up a used Vail Cycle Works steel frame. Has anyone heard of this company and/or the quality of the frames they produce?

Vail Cycle Works calls himself the "The Rocky Mountains Artisan Framebuilder". It seems appropriate in a thread about handmade frames. It is not like I am asking about a new Trek 1000.

Yes Vail Cycle Works is a handmade frame but the thread title is
HANDMADE BICYCLE SHOW PICS etc.
Its about the Show which was held last weekend.
