It’s always interesting the things that come into your head on the Daily commute to work I find I often come up with some of my most interesting ideas or mull over how to make the world a better place one bike frame at a time.

Hear is one of the those ideas that has become one of my beliefs.

All the frames I build end up getting transported from my home work shop where all the big machines jigs and alignment tables  are to my finishing work shop in town where i do all the filing and fit the braze on fitting then back to the home work shop for final prep before being sent out to get sprayed.

every trip is done on a bike and I have got riding with a wide frame on my back down to a fine art.

I started to think about how frames take shape as they get built up and how you can start to see the soul of the frame as it becomes a bike , any frame i create are like my children and like all children  some are easy to work with and some just fight you all the way .

To this end I find the transporting of the frames is like a fledgling bird being shown how to fly,

I talk to them and say this is what you are ,this is what i have created you to do, feel the wind running past you, feel the road under you , listen to the rhythm of the wheels , hear the ebb and flow of  your riders breath,feel the transfer of power from legs to road. All this is what you are, take this knowledge and be the frame I have designed you to be. run true and strong little fledgling.

A bit flowery maybe  but I truly believe in the soul of each frame, and hey wouldn’t you prefer to be riding a bike with soul

Stay upright Tarn..
