We had the honor to bring this Harry Havnoonian back to life.
Some of you may have noticed that our pal Renold Yip was featured on the cover of the NAHBS program.
Baltimore native Tom Palmero never disappoints.
The latest build here at old TBE was this Independent Fabrication Crown Jewel (of the steel persuasion) for Dennis.
I recently had the absolute pleasure of building the pictured YiPsan all-road bike for Catherine. The frame is hand crafted in the lugged tradition. I refer to this bike as an “all-road” bike because it is designed to accept wider cyclocross tires, but has road bike geometry.
I just built this YiPsan steel 29er mountain bike. The frame is fillet brazed and finished with a translucent red that allows you to see the brazing underneath. Stop by the shop and check the bike out in person or better yet set up a demo.
Roger just finished building his new do-it-all bike, a YiPsan monster cross. The bike is set up for all-day comfort in the saddle. The frame has clearance for wider knobbies so light mountain trails are not off limits.
I have always admired frames built in the lugged tradition. Their timeless beauty, durability, and ride quality are exceptional
As some of you may know Danielle and I recently relocated to a home closer to the shop. Part of the reason we moved was to make it easy to cycle to the shop.
The IF Weekend was a blast as Danielle mentioned. Matt gave a wonderful presentation, Mamma Lucia’s kept the great food stocked, and the micro brews were cold!
You are viewing the first batch of photos from last weekend’s Independent Fabrication event where IF President, Matt Bracken, spoke on the past, present and future of the company and it’s magnificent bikes.
