If I had to distill into a single word all of the qualities of a what a custom-built bicycle can be, potentially, and what it should be, that word would be “special”. A truly special bicycle is exciting in its advanced designs, its innovation, its creative and highly personalized detailing and in its very unique level of performance, and all these qualities must be matched with masterful craftsmanship. When I am designing and building a truly one-of-a-kind bicycle these days, those are the exact things that I'm thinking about. That's my focus, that's what I'm dedicated to. I've got to make it special. It's my responsibility as a custom builder to each person for whom I am building a bicycle. And these days, all that I build are one-of-a-kind bicycles that are highly individualized in so many different ways, but they all add up to an unparalleled expression of form and function.
As every bicycle that I build is very different from all others, I can't show any particular one as being fully representative of a model or of a level of frame. But I have taken many photographs of bicycles during different phases of the building process to show some of the intricate details of some aspects refined frame building, and I've taken many photos of finished bike frames as well in each of the three levels of work that I do: Standard-Level, Ultra-level and Signature-level frames.
