One of the greatest enjoyment I get building bikes is when I learn from customers of their experiences on the bike I built them. Got the below message from Bob not long ago and it really made my day.

This (a picture, not attached here) was taken on a ride that 10 of us did last weekend: Evanston, IL to Madison WI. 143 miles in a day. A very long day. I was going to use my LeMond because there are some hills, but I decided to take yours since it's just more comfortable. I continue to love the bike, and use it most mornings. I'm still tinkering with the gearing; last night I installed a vintage Campy crank with a 50T ring. But overall I stand by what I said earlier -- it's just what I wanted.

A couple of nice bikes are being assembled at The Bicycle Escape, first one done is Anton's road bike.

Next up will be Dan's tourer. Here is a picture of it before it left the shop.
