    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.)

    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?

    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.


    Prost!

    Hey;

    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.
