Joe Rogers did the aluminum parts for my sliders a few years ago. He also makes custom knives and sprockets like the Ti one here. With all the local trails washed out, looks like I'll have to settle for the stair cases up in Hunstville to test out the (NOS) fork on the Stout/Kona. There are some newer trails up in Austin that are really rocky and technical that are way more fun on a long travel/geared bike.
Lots of welding, and very little time to powdercoat anything as its been 200% precipitation for the past month.
