Yea, I was living in Seattle at the time, and since they are both in Oregon, I figured it would be rude to not give them the opportunity.

Chris Igleheart made the fork and stem for it, Keith is in process of last sanding and clear coat now.

Building it up with 8 speed XTR, King HS, White Industries hubs, IRC Post, Velocity Atlas rims, will keep everyone posted. The frame will cure for a month or so until the build starts. Since there's 4 feet of snow on the ground in Maine, I am in no rush.

My frame, fork and stem were stolen by Chris Cameron of Rosebud Bicycle Builds of Seattle, WA. He suddenly closed his shop and made off with my property.

My serial number was 048Y2M.

$1000 reward for return of my property.

Thanks All.

Oh wow. Man, I'm very sorry to hear that. After all that time and effort, and $ too... You must be devastated. I truly hope you/the police manage to track him down.
