Not too bad of weather in Chicago, especially for still technically being in the last few days of what has been a very bearable winter. Now that it looks to be warming up enough I can get started on some projects I've been putting off all winter - mainly, building Whit's bike. I'm thinking it's going to be a strip down and paint job on the frame, toss on the moustache bars, and add a custom rear basket for her to carry her lady gear in. I'll post some pictures of this as it progresses, but for the time being check out a real bike builder at ANT Bicycles.
Mike Flanigan (Ant Bike Mike) has been in the bicycle trade since 1983 and has been running ANT full time since 2003. Mike constructs his bikes from scratch in his machine shop in Holliston, MA. If you're interested in learning how to make and take home your own bicycle frame from raw steel tube you can check out the one week frame building class. If you want to learn how to make your own bicycle business check out Mike's six week frame building class. What's that? You're not feeling up to the grueling labor of building your own bike? That's alright, you can just purchase one of mikes handmade rides here.
