First Contact

Hope you've a got a good summer on lockdown.

Jorge Tamayo just got a new bike.
That always helps.

We pulled out all the stops and built him a 29er super shredder.

He wanted a painted pattern that was black and white. 
Hard to do without it becoming a mess. 
The negative space ends up playing just as important 
of a role as the positive space, if not more.

Here's that revised dropout design again.
I'm pretty happy with them.

That curved seat tube is really the linchpin
to how well these bikes ride.
You can't fake short chain stays.

Man, that did come out nice!
Thanks, Jorge.

Ps I Love You is a band.
They are from Canada.
They are very good.
