This is a bottom bracket shell that I cut out with a heron standing in a marsh. Something as complex as this has to be done before the frame is built in order to gain access with the jeweler’s saw, but simpler designs can be done to built frames.

This is a chainring that we customized for a fixed gear bike that is being built by Wabi Cycles in
Angeles. It was
originally black. We removed the color
and drilled the hole pattern. The owner
is on his way back from an extended stay in Afghanistan and has been looking
forward to seeing his new machine.

This is a derailleur that I did for a display at the Big Stampede Bike Expo in Charlotte, NC. It has been buffed and the jockey cages were drilled. The inlay was done with two colors of Mother of Pearl. Of all the pieces I was showing, this one seemed to draw the most attention.

This is a project for a client with a Follis track bike that will be used for points racing. The stem has the Follis logo that was parallelogramed by the manufacturer. We milled a flute into both the top and bottom of the extension.
Below is a Campagnolo seatpost for the same bike. We milled flutes and dots into the sides of the post which was then buffed. We then cut a section out of the top and followed with sandblasting to reproduce the original Campy finish.
If you'd like to see the flutes in the seatpost being milled, take a look at this video.
