Frame Building in the USA

I've been quiet on here the last few month. I've been busy.

I've spent the last two months in the US, doing a lot of bike related activities - a frame building course, a mechanics course, riding around cities, riding in the mountains, lying in hospital...

I've been a bit slack with my blogging, but have managed to get the first half of the trip up now, covering a few days on…

Where are our bikes?

I think this one is a bit tough, so I will give you a few clues:

1. These aren't technically our bikes. We had to leave ours at home and rent these for the day but they did the job well, nice light aluminum hybrids with Shimano Alfine 8 Speed hubs.

c. I was about to turn…
