Happy birthday Coconino!
Steve has been building bikes for 10 years as of today. Might not seem like much to some folks but IMO that is super impressive. If I were feeling snarky I'd point out that 10 years = 100 framebuilder years (yes, we're ahead of even dogs!)
Here's to 10 more of the best fillets I've ever seen from a really good guy!
I love his work and he's quite popular in the VRC since his designs definitely have a certain retro flavor. Happy birthday, Steve!!!
(p.s. If Steve reads this, I think there are some frames of his in the forum.)
I really admire Steve's work. Congrats on 10 years, Steve!
Congrats, Mr. Garro! And thank you again for your guidance on my journey as well.
Congrats Steve, you've got a great company, thanks for busting your ass so mine isn't!
I ride after my own fashion, on endless narrow singletrack.
And thanks for the blog, taking the time to share your experience, documenting your process for the framebuilding minions to benefit from.
Here is one of Steve's frames. I know the owner and he loves it so much he's getting another.
Does this look OK?
Congratulations on your 10th anniversary Coconino Bikes and Steve Garro.
Thanks allot, you guys!
It means allot.
Work hard & do what you say, that's all I got.

Yeah - it's at paint.

I have to admit to partaking in a couple of hobbies that are internet enabled/encouraged. Homebrewing beer and DSLR photography being the main ones that afflict me, in addition to frame building.
I bring up the other hobbies because though there is a staggering amount of information available for each. That said there is ABSOLUTELY NOF'INGWAY that a Garro equivalent in those professions is taking the time to offer up honest advise to painfully beginner hobbyists.....for free.
Really, It's a big deal that folks like you dedicate time to this whole internet/social media fad.
Slowly slipping to retrogrouchyness
Although I am attempting it myself, in a rather different realm, I can't imagine trying to earn a living from building bikes. It has to be for the craft, because it certainly can't be about getting rich. Your efforts SCREAM craft. As G inferred, you take the time here for the benefit of others. For the craft.
As a devotee of craft in many forms, I also offer...

wow, thanks - I just realised the other day the Coconino blog has seven years of beta on it - quite the virtual tome.
