How goes it?
It goes well here.
This is a bike for Roger Cook in
San Luis Obispo, California.
Roger and I worked together at a bike shop
in San Luis about 11-12 years ago.
Right as I started building bikes.
He now has three kids and I still build bikes.
Amazing how time flies.
44mm head tube for them new fangled tapered
steerer tubes all the kids want these days.
Look close. It's a splittable belt drive dropout.
The kids go crazy for those belts.
A handful of hand painted
You might be asking yourselves
"What's that seam for in the middle of the seat tube?"
Well, the upper is a seat tube that takes a 30.9mm
seat post which is what all the dropper posts are sized at-
which is what all the kids demand. The lower tube
is a smaller size (1.25"/31.8mm) to keep the weight down a bit
and so I don't have to make or buy really expensive bending dies
for every seat tube/post size that comes down the pike.
Here at Black Cat Bicycles, we do it for the kids.
Those who know need no intro.
Those that don't already, probably don't care.
Ladies and gentlemen,
