I guess I am still considered an enthusiast or hobby builder with aspirations to "go pro" someday... soon. I have built about 10 frames and at least that many forks, have done some frame repairs as well as upgraded a few as well. I have spent the last 5 years becoming proficient in torch welding and fillet brazing as well as silver brazing and now I plan to hone my skills at TiG welding and hope to start building Titanium frames soon.
I am not a purist and find I like a very wide range but eclectic style of frames with a classic style, form and function with a modern performance. I really just like building bikes one at a time and seeing my bikes get ridden and the pride on their new owners face.
