That bike was the result of visits to Dale’s shop

That bike was the result of visits to Dale’s shop, of long conversations about types of tubes, materials and riding styles. I remember holding and looking at bare steel tubes and going through boxes of fork crowns and being able to specify the most small of details on that bike. It was a collaboration effort. I saw the bike evolve from metal....

"... So I think the biggest help was to introduce them to Dale Saso who taught them how to make a frame using braising."


“I learned how to braise from him, I learned how to frame-build from him, I learned how to make jigs to make bikes. So many things.”

 What do you love the most about riding your bike? 


I was asked that same question by Dale Saso recently. He's a frame builder who built me a bike in 1987 and has repaired it several times. I think it's all about giving a person freedom, self-reliance. I've ridden my bike in places unimaginable to most people, experienced nature in all its glory while enjoying the outdoors. The bike is easily the most efficient form of human transportation, an engineering marvel. And I can maintain it.
