check out custom framebuilder Bob Davis, from Peoria, AZ @ ariZonaTandems.com
He specializes in tandems, but does do singles; uses carbon fiber almost exclusively. Great builder/artist!
Own one of his tandems + one of his singles.
We've pedaled as a duo for over 200,000 miles in the last 30 years and are currently on tandem #5.
Have ridden custom/production tandems in steel, alu, ti and c/f.
Frame building is as much art as science and a good framebuilder will never get rich . . . but they're happy/dedicated individuals!

Why do you wear a mask? Were you burned by acid or something?


Glad you asked...

Nope, actually the photo is of me last Xmas (2004) right after I opened a gift from my 5 year old daughter. The gift... a balaclava for winter riding. The glasses are "Harry Potter" glasses my daughter insisted I wear for the photo. The glasses are hers.

When I started the blog my daughter wanted me to use this photo... and who was I to argue with her? That's the story of the photograph.

-Me (Large Fella)

Large Fella: I believe the correct answer to this questoin is: Oh no. It's just they're terribly comfortable. I think everyone will be wearing them in the future.

It's a "Princess Bride" reference.

Oh, and could you send your questionaire to Walt, from waltworks cycles? www.waltworks.com. He's building my bike right now, at this very moment! Well maybe not at this exact moment, because it's saturday evening, but you get the idea. He's very respected in the 29er world.

Surly is building a front rack for there 29er is there a frame builder that is making a rear one maybe ataching to the old break mounts because I have disk in the rear.

Thanks, It its a Garry Fisher "Rig" if someone did make a rack like this I could really call this the perfect city bike. Kevin Duggan Denver CO.

I'm trying to find the FBQ, but the links aren't working. Can you send it to me?
