Below are a few of the many people that have helped me along the way. Be they business partners or customers or builders or whoever. Fine folks, the lot of them.
Zukas Cycles – Handbuilt and painted in August GA. Nate Zukas sent me a Fizik Aliante for one of his personal bikes, a choice lugged steel crosser with an integrated seatpost.
Yipsan Bicycles – Renold Yip was the first builder that requested a saddle for a bike in the 2012 NAHBS, the fantastic Cafe Racer.
Naked Bicycles – Sam and Andrea are another fine pair of builders that requested saddles for their 2012 NAHBS bikes. Based in Quadra Island, BC.
Tom Matchak Cycles – Classic lugged steel frames with lovely auburn saddle and bar tape.
Zanconoto Bicycles – Fine handbuilt bicycles from MA. Lots of fantastic lugs and pristine panel paint. I did a bunch of Flites for Mike, all white.
Winter Bicycles – Exquisitely handmade in Oregon. Eric sent me a couple of saddle for his award winning NAHBS 2013 bike, the Tenga Track.
Kelly Bedford Customs – Kelly is 22+ year custom bicycle industry veteran and a true craftsman in every sense of the word. If you can dream it, Kelly can build it from his Greenfield Center, NY shop.
Aluboo Bikes – Aluminum and bamboo bicycle frames built in Fort Collins, Co. Their European distributor, based in the Netherlands, has recovered saddles on his two main show bikes.
