Here's my new Vanilla frameset... bare steel ready for some lovely paint.

Henry James lugs, crown fork with curved blades, canti brake bosses, stainless stell horizontal drop outs (or fork ends for literalists) with a derailleur hanger so I can run the bike multi-speed or fixed/SS.

Details that are hard to see include the lugs being filed to taper down gracefully to the tubes, brass plates on the stainless steel rear drops to give nuts or QR better bite, bosses for mounting some nice Honsho fenders.

A bit over 6 months, but I think it'll be well worth it. I don't think being local matters. I think Sacha builds them as the orders come in.

Wow...talk about anticipation!

I'm excited with little more than the photo you provided. I trust you'll grace us with more pix when she comes in and with a detailed ride report as well as a full narrative of the Sacha experience.

Cheers,
Scott

WooHooo!

That looks like it will be a stunner Mark! I have run into Sacha a few times at Stumptown and the like and he always has a fabulous example of his handiwork with him.

Show us more when you get 'em.
