Jeff's freshly painted 29er hanging in the hot box, getting all cured up and ready to assemble. I like how the angle of this shot shows all the curves. Because the seat tube was too short to have the seat stays follow the curve of the top tube, I went the other way and made them to match the curve of the chainstays....I'm glad I did!
I think I need to stop using the flash on the digital camera- the bike looks blue in the pic, the color is actually "plum" so it's much more purple. Plus, the weird flash effect makes it look like there's a dark stripe on the head tube, that isn't there either. Oh well, my picture taking abilities aside, it's all about the curves baby!
