Brandon Ives comments about this frame:
"The pictures do absolutely no justice to the quality of the build and workmanship on this frame. This is in my top 5 highest quality frames I've ever seen, and is the #1 "bronze welded" frame I've ever seen. Something to note is that he has the gussets built into the fork and seat cluster which is a technique I think Hilary mentioned recently. For me the most special part on the frame is the rear dropouts which are hand made from plate steel and then bronze washers are brazed onto them, very beautiful and very clean. "
