Report: Framebuilding workshop

Posted by on June 20th, 2005 at 11:59 pm

60+ eager bike lovers descended upon a non-descript garage door near 38th and Belmont to get a glimpse at the magic of framebuilding from Sacha White, master craftsman of Vanilla Bicycles. Their wait was rewarded with compelling, behind-the-scenes information and cold PBR and Hansens (Vanilla Cola flavor of course).

The crowds were thick so Sacha and Ben ferried crowds of 10-15 at a time through the tour.

Sacha explained the intricacies of turning cold, hard, steel tubing into smooth, gorgeous, functional bicycles that are truly custom. I think it’s great to know that in this day and age, there are still guys like Sacha…dedicated to his craft and good enough to do it full time (he’s got a 1 year backlog).
