02.24.2012 / Raphael Cycles / SSCX disco back from paint NAHBS teasers:

It is actually my birthday.

Rick did a sick job.  Even better in person.  Part won of too.  I met Steve Potts picking it up too, which was totally totally rad.  I can’t say that I didn’t feel uneasy about such a master and creator holding my frame in his hands.  Got a bit of a lesson and some tips too.  He invited me to go up and visit his shop in the near future.

The law of conservation of energy is a law of physics. It states that the total amount of energy in an isolated system remains constant over time. The total energy is said to be conserved over time. For an isolated system, this law means that energy can change its location within the system, and that it can change form within the system … but that energy can be neither created nor destroyed. (Wikipedia).

All coming together.  ENVE tapered carbon fork shipped today (thank you Matt for pushing that through!), buttons and stickers on the move, wheels building, all my next tubes coming in, more freshies coming back from paint soon.  Seeing results is inspiring.  Push hard.

And a huge huge shout out to Bicycle Fabrications, here in SF, makers of radass badass machines.  I was in a jam about reaming the head tube of this monster and they came through in a pinch.  Thank you men.
