Monday in the shop


so....Other than the carbon seat tube'd bikes, the pink, blue and army (and their accompanying stems, bars, hubs, etc.) are nearly done. Sm's are close to done and looking quite sporty and  dignified. A favorite around the shop these days. Carbon Seat tube's bikes are making their way back to paint and and the first few (10 carbon st's  total) will be getting color this week.

Masking the stainless at the top of the seat tube.

Until these frame get their carbon seat tubes, they're bound to remain the butt of countless softride jokes.
