Been busy wrapping up the final details for the bikes going to the show; lots of time on the phone talking with customers, working up spec sheets, ordering parts, etc... so I've not got much posting done.
I also got a letter similar to many of my professional compatriots, a denial of renewal from my insurance carrier. The letter definitely had that middle school break up feel to it..."it's not you, it's me". Seems that Diamond Corporation, the carrier for NIPC (the most known company for bicycle manufacturers), has chosen not to underwrite the industry any longer.
Fortunately, I've got a super local agent who was able to work me up a better policy for...get ready for this, LESS money! For once, things are going in favor of the little guy :) If anyone else needs some policy luv for their building endeavours, let me know and I'll pass along Linda's info.
Back to shop work, here's a pic of Roy and Mel's bar combos and the winning bottle opener all out of the bake box.
