framebuilders are people too.

velocipede salon .there are untold numbers of people involved in the bicycle industry plying various trades to keep the rest of us satisfied on the weekend ride. and all the cycley bits in between. i'm sure there are even more than those of which i'm aware, but it's probably enough for now to be going on with. and an untold number of those are just like you and i, except with a bit more talent in directions that we wish our own talents lay. not for them the strange and contrived acronyms that decorate many a carbon seatstay, proclaiming features that we don't understand, and to be honest, probably don't actually need. at the industrial end of the market there is a growing need to differentiate, and if that means inventing new technical features that only pretend to exist, then so be it. marketing will do that to you.

Why Not In Detroit ?

A local graduate ofUnited Bicycle Institute'sframe building school plans to start a club that will help builders pool resources and have a better chance at success. Roland Couture is a 41 year-old, self-described "tinkerer, lifetime cyclist, and musician smart enough to have an engineering degree, but with too much rebel/ADD/disillusionment to sit still in the corporate world like a good boy." Couture's vision for the Portland Framebuilder Club (he's bought the domain name but is still working on the site) is a to create an informal network where builders could come together, learn from each other, and more. Couture hopes to someday collect dues and pool finances so that fledgling builders could afford expensive tools, share shop space (a "club shop" he calls it) where members could schedule work time, get volume discounts on materials, and host professional development seminars and clinics. Nine builders have already expressed interested in becoming members and Couture says he hopes to add more names to his list the coming weeks. Couture is aware of the existing Oregon Bicycle Constructors Association -- a non-profit organization that has builders from throughout the state and puts on a major annual bike show -- but says the scope of his club would be "more local and more hands-on." He also points out that established builders would also be welcome to join. "It should be pretty awesome for lots of folks whether framebuilding is 'just a hobby' or a professional aspiration."

Month One

The first month at paper street motors has come and gone. The shop is still up and running and we didn't burn the pace down. Were still in a transition phase while the shop grows, there are walls and benches to be assembled, and inventory to stock.  HGC has gone from a casual basement business to a full blown repair shop in just a few short months, and we continue to grow each day.  We look forward to the next month and hopefully many more after that.  Lets get those bikes on the road.
