    New Bilenky FS Bike

    Thought you PA guys might want to see a frame built up from scratch. Steve Bilenky was kind enough to agree to send me updates and photos to post here. Bilenky Cycle Works is also the builder for the new EWR frames.

    This will be my full suspension S&S coupler travel bike.

    Here are some pics of what goes at BCW. Simon is the guy in all the photos and I think Steve took these:













    Looks like good progress is being made.

    Feel free to ask any questions and I will ask Steve to respond directly - if he is not too busy building my bike!

    Nice Choice....

    Especially in your builder.
    Those EWR guys are smart in their choice(s) too! ;-)

    So the front triangle is done and sent to powder. Here are a bunch of pics.















    Hopefully it will be done for the May 10th Blue Marsh ride.
