I’ve had more time to ride this past week. I miss building, so can’t wait to get back to it, but getting out there has been really nice. I’ve noticed that many real framebuilders don’t get much time to ride. It’s like any job in the self-employment world really…you can always do more work. But unique to framebuilding, riding is kind of part of your work. Testing your own frames and forks really is a learning experience at least starting out when you haven’t tried that many different geometries yet. Obviously though, riding your bikes is more for the soul than anything work-related!
Here are some photos from the last week of riding.
