Things have been crazy busy around the shop stocking up on frame building parts, doing production work and unpacking from the move last summer. Consolidated the Solid webstore with the frame building webstore since we are very low on some old Solid stock like bars, frames, stems and headsets. Got some new Tshirts and hats coming in as well as laser cut parts and tapered rearend tubing in both open end and bullet tip. Tapered headtubes are flying off the shelf and working on doing a slightly thinner version. Also selling them cut and squared to length. On the down side, I am going to be raising the prices across the board slightly to cover material/shipping/cost of living increases associated with life in these modern times. Sorry. Also going to get rid of the facebook and get instagram going once my replacement phone arrives.
OK. So we moved from Sacramento, California to Corvallis, Oregon. After 25 years of living in the same place I decided it was time for a change. But its not like I can just pack up my hatchback and hit the road. I have three kids, a wife and a shop full of machines, materials and tools. I had been spread too thin for too long trying to do Solid brand parts, frame, crank and handlebar production for other companies as well as running CNC machines making headtubes, bbs, stems, sprockets, etc. Can’t do it all, so I am officially out of the frame, crank and handlebar business. Downsized to a small shop with the CNC machines and myself. I am putting all my energy and focus into frame building parts and possibly stems and sprockets. Thanks for all the support over the last 19 years and am really looking forward to the new version of Solid.
