My goal in building this bike up was to have a frame custum built in America by someone whose ethics and practices I agreed with. After interviewing Chris at Circle A I strongly connected to what he had to say about community, craftmenship, and consumerism. We discussed my goal of building up a bike with American components manufactured by small independent companies. He suggested the True Temper tubing and we went from there.

This is a "road fixed" frame with parallel 73 degree angles that I will be using as my primary ride and for longer rides out of town as well. The small rake with the lax geometry makes it a comfortable ride but still allows for tight handling and manueverability.

Johnny Coast in Brooklyn is currently building me a custom chromed stem. I went with Velocity rims because although they aren't an American company they are a small worker owned company with great support and service. The high polished Paul cranks are early prototypes on loan to me from the wonderful Don Walker and will be replaced soon with my own set of Pauls now that they are in production.

Liking the Dreamsicle

It sounds like you spent a small fortune on this one. How can I get my hands on one of those chainrings? It would look tight on my Ciocc fixie.
