Today I spent a few hours chatting with a local frame builder here in Austin. He just moved here from California and has been working in his backyard shop since December building track and road frames. His ambitions are to offer a $750 handmade in the USA, fillet and lug finished track frameset for customers wanting an inexpensive option to the run of the mill Taiwanese steel frames.
You’ve gotta commend him, especially after the comments in the Bruce Gordon post today. Check back tomorrow for more photos and details. Until then, remember, hands make the frame.
