    Ground Up Designs?

    I have seen a few of this guy's frames (he used to post under Rattlecan over on Dirt Rag), but can't get a response to emails. Anybody know how to get in touch with him? He posted over there that he was doing a run of 29er SS's and I'd like to know more. Thoughts on his work?

    This is it.

    Anywhoo, don't go anywhere near the website, and emailing Eric is futile at best. See if his phone number is on the website, or PM me for it.

    I hate to break it to you, but the ugliest bike in the lot is Eric's 29er. Despite its poorly colored scheme, it's a damn fine bike. Here's some more pics...

    Ooops. This is the only pic I've got, and it's not too impressive. You get the idea, though. The fork is only temporary (I think a WB is on the way?), the paint is hand-done (funky, almost native doodlings), and the rims and cranks were PC'ed pink, but they proved too pink, so he added the black halves. He'll be racing this on our SS team at 24 Hrs of Moab - the only 29er in the lot.

    Good job! hey....that's my bike!!!...sweeeeet!

    hey SS'rs, that black G-Up Crotch Rocket is my noble, sexy steed. Sorry she wasn't cleaner for the photo-op but it had been a long week. I will try to include some new updated pic's of her as my friend's and my G-Ups haven't been posted on the forum officially since the naked frames. remember the stolen ones we were replacing? yeah, that's us. damn the heathen thieves here in Colorado Springs. mine in particular has been a little photo shy. let me know what you think though, eh? word, out!

    ... and if we just ... g-up anyone? ask for eric's phone #

    Eric just LUUUUUUUUV's to build frames. I would like to keep him busy so let me know if anybody needs his phone #. this is pretty much the only way to get a hold of him like Dizzle says. I guess there is always stopping by his house but that isn't terribly secure to post here, besides even that can be a little touch and go sometimes. Like i said, i will try to be a little more diligent with putting up some pic's of my "baby" and other's i think need to be shown to the public. got a killer fixey flip-flopper i built up not too long ago. talk to ya'll later............
