Ride a bike, share your experience and love. When I go biking, I repeat a mantra of the day's sensations: bright sun, blue sky, warm breeze, blue jay's call, ice melting and so on. This helps me transcend the traffic, ignore the clamorings of work, leave all the mind theaters behind and focus on nature instead. I still must abide by the rules of the road, of biking, of gravity. But I am mentally far away from civilization. The world is breaking someone else's heart. ~Diane Ackerman

Project X - SS Road Bike

The SS Road Bike is coming along well. I finally decided on green, CANIDAE Green to be exact. I had Daran Rupp at Precision Metal Finishing, sand blast and powder coat my frame. I am impressed with his workmanship and the CANIDAE Green came out 1000 times better than I expected. Daran paid particular attention to the Bottom Bracket threads and head tube. These areas typically need to be chased and cleaned after a paint job, but was not necessary because of the great workmanship. Besides the head set, everything on this bike will be black.

Daran's company powder coats everything. If you have bike projects or need something powder coated, give him a call.
