Saturday Outing - Continued More

Vincent Dominguez shares space with Erik. I had planned on spending more time on his side of the divider, but we were running out of time and other than hand shakes and a,  "Hi, howzit goin'?" we didn't get much of a chance to talk. He is not Erik. Erik is brash. Vincent is quiet ... with a bunny logo. He has ridden the PBP and is a good source for randos or classic lugged or brazed frames. His lugged frames are much more in the Kvale graceful thin-lug aesthetic than Erik's for instance. He also makes racks and stems.

A flash fast mixte.

Thanks for the nice post. I'm sorry we didn't get a chance to chat.

May I use "Vincent is quiet...with a bunny logo" as my tag line?

Chris Kvale and Terry Osell are my framebuilding inspirations: Terry for his practical view of framebuilding ("if it looks straight, it is straight"), and Chris for his meticulous work. They have both been extremely generous of their time over the years and with sharing their knowledge and experience.

Oh, and Erik. But his sh*t is crazy! Cool, that is. He has to teach me how to TIG weld.

See next you time when I have, more time. That red bike is beautiful.

Thanks, Gunnar!

That red bike is the first one I ever built (finished in 2002). I built it for my wife. Bonus points!
