Facelift for MC#1

It may be some time before I make myself another 29er so I dismantled, cleaned, wire-brushed, primed, and painted my 1st frame.  Looking at my work along the way, I was surprised how far my welding has come in comparison to this first frame…and surprised I haven’t cracked it yet! It’s rough…but still going strong.

My first cross bike back in 1995 was a Merckx-orange Nobillette made in nearby Longmont, CO.  I loved that bike.  I also had a bright orange Ionic Johnny Rotten singlespeed with a sweet Fat Chance rigid fork on it for many years. I loved that bike even more.  Only fits that I paint this frame orange. Plus it’s the start of hunting season here in the Rockies…! Stay safe out there!

  1. My old orange Ionic Johnny Rotten single speed with Chris Chance rigid fork has been sent to Africa with Mike’s Bikes program – Bikes for Africa. It’s either winning races or delivering chickens right now!
