Uploaded a bunch of photos to my flickr page in preparation of updating my website. There's a couple more bikes I need to photograph, but for now, this is enough. The photo title is a link to the bike photo set.
1985 Fat Chance
1991 Ibis SS
1988 Mantis Valkyrie
1984(?) Steve Potts Custom - this particular bike has every option Steve offered on his custom bikes. It is likely the only frame/bike built with every option. Some of the options include: early WTB hubs, Campy wheels skewers with modified Hi-E end caps, machined stem w/ 4-bolt face-plate (pre-dates the Thomson stem by years), faux lugs at the head tube and on the chain stay (Steve says this was the only frame he did the faux lug on the chainstay), the flattened chain stay and seat stay bridges are known as picnic table bridges, custom outer chainring guard, fixed angle seat post, and, of course, early WTB roller-cams front and rear.
This blue Potts and green Potts (aka the Ross Potts) came from a local couple and are now owned by a friend.
Another custom Steve Potts from the early days.
A Swift that was made in collaboration between Steve Potts and Mark Slate.
1984 Ritchey Team Comp. The day after I finished building this bike, I completed a 50 mile mountain bike ride in Orange County in support of Project Rwanda. This bike is super fun.
1985 Specialized Team Stumpjumper
1984 Salsa ala Carte - this bike also carried me on a cross-country bike trip in 1989.
1998 WTB Phoenix
