Special Feature: An evening with frame builders Kent Eriksen, Mark Nobilette & Peter Weigle

The Two Johns talk to the three craftsmen about their work & customers, we glean a glimpse about the shared passion behind their work.

Our Twitter followers know we recently gave coverage of the North American Handmade Bike Show .  Here are a couple images:

    Hey guys, I do not recall the podcast ever mentioning the Columbus power meter?

    Did you guys get by the Cherubim booth? There seemed to be some pretty wild stuff at that booth from the pictures I saw.

    G’Ville- yes, that booth had some unique work, the tt bike had some really tidy details. The longer you looked at it the more unorthodox stuff you saw, but it was well done.

    Nice Interview Guys. I went to the Indy Show. Lots of nice stuff there. Came home with some goodies. John G is that a low slung camelback? Those pink brass knuckles will only deter some of us from telling.

  5. Fascinating stuff guys. Any links to the frame builders own websites (if they have them?)

  6. john says:

    The names listed after ‘Special Feature’ above are clickable & linked to the builder’s websites or photostream in the case of Weigle.

    Does John G’s allowance of questions discussing wide tire suspension enhanced cycling amount to breaking the contract of the previous podcast?

    Keep working on him John K.
