Taiwan bound...

Welp, after making my last of over 70 trips to Taiwan two years ago, I'm heading back to the island for a week of taking in the sights. Actually, I'll be meeting the the folks I'm working with on the development of my frames as well and I'll be hitting up the annual Taipei Cycle Show for a couple of days. I'm looking forward to seeing friends in the industry I haven't seen for two years and sitting around a big ole dinner table with a heap of food in the center and drinking some Taiwan Beer. Good times.

Had a pretty good day yesterday. Didn't get anything done on time that I had planned, but sometimes that's good because it means actual customers were in the shop. Jim G came up from the city to get his frame aligned so we headed over to Steve Potts' work shop where we tweaked the frame a bit to get it nice an straight. I also finished up a certain Otis Guy. Pictures when I get back. And had a bunch of repairs dropped off - one of which is a frame and parts to build up a race bike for a high school kid who races the Nor Cal mountain bike league and finished in the top three last year. Fast kid.

(What's playing: the sound of silence this morning. Sometimes, quiet is pretty nice.)
