Odin sacrificed an eye, trading eyesight for insight, and disguised as Vegtam the Wanderer, traveled the world in quest of the wisdom of the ages. I have the eye sacrifice part covered. I'll get back to you when that wisdom thing kicks in.

Outing to Visit Bike Builders

I just returned from an outing. I first stopped by Curt Goodrich's shop where he was working on a bike for the Handbuilt Bicycle Show in Indianapolis the end of Feb. It's a small bike, a steel frame and fork with a Campy Super Record gruppo. He's shooting for a rolling weight of 16 pounds. It's a small fame, but still a remarkable weight for a steel bike. STEEL IS REAL! He's proud of his new website. http://www.curtgoodrich.com/

After I left Curt, I drove a few blocks over to Chris Kvale's shop where I met a couple of other bicycle fanciers and dropped off a frame for refinishing. Chris was finally moved into the 19th Century. His wife gave him a cell phone and friends set up a simple website for him.
