. My tuning bolts arrive this morning as well so I am pretttttty darn excited. That will save me around 30-40 grams, plus possibly a new rear hub and Pillar Ti spokes, if I do not sell the Zipps. Should save me almost 200 grams. Goal is to get the bike back down to the 12lb market, less than a pound, thats nothing
Also a thank you tooo
Jason is just a really really wonderful person, I have to say we are all lucky to have someone who is so willing to work with us in this industry. He is so helpful and always willing to offer adive. I can blame him for my purchase of a Cyfac, he jostled a memory I had of them. I can't wait to visit this summer so as to buy this man dinner and a beer if he lets me!
Nils has been super helpful with the almost daily
questions I have for him. It is really great to have so much knowledge about bikes! As well as the fact that his artful mastery of smiley faces keeps myself (and my girlfriend) entertained and laughing.

Bent over backwards for me, sent photos, chatted with me on the phone, called me back when he saw I had called via caller ID (brownies points there). Got me my frame in two days safely. I was freaked out for a moment about the weight, Eric was truly upset that I was not happy. He went as far as to run around weighing other frames for me. In the end his testament to the bike was to ride it, just build it and ride it. If you don't like it I will take it back
. Well I built it and while building it had already decided he was NEVER getting this frame back
. Thank you Eric, you did an awesome job and you were right!
Tom from Parlee:
We spent almost two hours on the phone, after this conversation I had already decided that I would be ordering a boutique frame and nothing else. The commitment and passion was great. Unfortunently things just did not work out 100% on my side, the logistics didn't quite play right for me so a Parlee will have to come at another point.
On a side note, I did not go custom as the stock geometry was what I wanted. Worked out very good for me! If you want custom though, just call Eric, you may not need to travel allll the way out there, he will work with you via telephone if he must. I am sure of it!
