Justin Spinelli has spent years as a professional racer and mechanic. His company, Luxe Wheelworks is nestled in the freshly-established HQ in Boston, where he assembles high-end wheels for clients all over the US. Even if you have no use for his wheelbuilding expertise, you really should check out his blog for some wheel porn.
Also, Justin, thanks for the water bottles!

This is very nice. I love gumwalls, bright frames and even silver components. But the dual brakes seal the deal. You can tell someone’s in this for the distance. Check out more at Superb. Thanks for the heads up Tracko.
Marty and the Geekhouse boys are back at it, building frames in their new HQ spot. He’s got the list going for the new 2012 Geekhouse Mudville cross team bikes. I’m on the list, are you?

Ian of Icarus Frames is one of those people who will inspire you just by being around him. He’s sometimes quiet, shy and soft spoken, but when you get him going, he’s very opinionated. He’s also one of the most talented individuals I know. Recently, in pursuit of a different kind of life, Ian packed his shop up at Fringe and moved to Asheville, North Carolina. Having grown up in NC and since I’ve spent a good amount of time in Asheville, I can say that both his business and Ian will thrive there. Justin Keena, former studio mate of Ian, took some photos of him before he left for the South. You really should head over and see the full set for yourself.
Thanks for sharing Justin and Ian, best of luck homie! By the way, there’s nothing a recently-relocated builder loves more than a few orders. Why not put a deposit down?
You’d think Marty and the Geekhouse gang would have mistaken Austin for Boston at last year’s event. Somehow they got confused and set up their NAHBS booth in their new space at HQ Boston. Silly guys, the convention was 3,011 miles away! While they sort out their flub up, head over to the Geekhouse blog and Flickr for more details on what happened.
