Yo, Gang.
Here's a new bike for Geoff Garcia.
He'll be schralping it all over the East Bay hills and beyond.

After all the paint jobs that I've attempted,
I have decided that lining a shoreline is the
hardest thing in the world to paint.
Of course, the extra points on the gusset made
it that much harder. Glutton for punishment, I guess.

Swinger dropouts, of course, on this single speed.

Branding in Spanish to keep the street cred
amongst those who demand Spanish branding.

The seat stays have a subtle arc to them.
Just enough to give it that look.

Thin Lizzy is way
more than Jailbreak.
Emerald for example.
Careful you don't melt your
face on the wah-wah solos.

Gorgeous bike.

Good call on Thin Lizzy too!

How's about a little Black Rose to go along with your recommendation of Emerald?

i don't think i've heard a thin lizzy song i don't like. they do have like 13 records. the recommendations just have to stop somewhere...
emerald happens to be my favorite. it also happens to be on the jailbreak record. what is one to do?

oh yea, bikes. thanks. it was a long, drawn out process for this one. a lot of start and stop. sometimes it just works out like that.

good grief Todd, this one is off the hook!

Is that downtube stainless, or just clear over raw chromoly?
