    New question here. Besides Spicer...who else repairs frames?

    I have a 'cross bike with a bent seat stay. I want to get that fixed and get some track drops welded on to make a fixed gear. Spicer seems like a good deal so far but I want to get a few estimates.



    Proof that gears are evil. A snapped chain combined with my awesome leg strength did this.

    Call Vulture Cycles out of Bend, Oregon. Talk with Wade or Derrick, they're both great guys and can hook you up.

    Otherwise check out their new website, there's some pretty nice stuff there.

    Pfeiffers (http://www.koolbikes.com/) never used 'em, but looked into it when considering a project. can also do paint and decals

    Thanks for the recommendations!

    Appreciate the info. I saw the S&S couplings...didn't think of that before. Might need to eat some Ramen so I can afford that. Should I go for a pimpin paint job or just spray paint it and make it look badass?

    Hey Brant ... when will we see some disc-compatible Inbred frames again? Your public wants you.

    I've JUST finalised my new inbred frame drawing with a new sliding dropout design - just waiting for it to land and make sure it works, then we can go with that.

    We'll be doing two, or even FOUR versions.

    One model in 853 with heat treated rear stays.
    One model in DN6 4130 double butted chromoly throughout.
    And each version is planned to come in 2 versions - one with full gear and brake routing, and one with JUST brake routing.

    The frames are all now chainstay bridgeless (for clearance and fatigue strength reasons), and also have a dual brake boss position to allow you to run either 26in or 700c wheels - not 29in as such, but certainly LARGE 700c tyres.

    Geometry is tweaked to work with 3-5in forks - it'll still handle great with a 420mm rigid fork though.

    Available from early next year I hope - with the dropouts also being used on our new 29er frame, and titanium (26 and 29in).

    Lots planned.

    Along with a ti pompino run I ordered today, a rework of our ti cross frame, and a ti road frame.

    Lots of frames!

    Heh...

    Brant...just send me some of that blue paint and some On-One decals .

    I'm trying to decided what new bike I want to buy. I'll be moving to Alaska so I think I'll get more use out of a new MTB.

    Try another option....

    Another guy to check out is Joseph Ahearne, here in Portland, OR. He does wonderful work. I can personally vouch for the quality of his work as well as character.

    You can check out his website at http://www.ahearnecycles.com for some pics. He recently came up with the intensely popular flask holder; debuted at InterBike.

    He's working on putting some Paul's dropouts w/ custom derailluer hanger in the back of my fixed bike, as well as reworking the brake and cable mounts on my 'crosser. Cheap, beautiful, and the most down to earth guy you will talk to.

    To understand his background a little more, look at Vanilla Bicycles. Sacha, the owner, and Joseph messengered together here in Portland for a number of years. They both learned from the same guy. Joseph's perspective is functionality - Sacha's is a little over the top IMO.
