Steel CX order1. This customer has very light weight. His frame will be light weight, too. Each customer is different, each frame is different, too. I manage every processes. It's interesting. I like this job.
Steel chain stays. There are some kinds of steel CS. I usually use these CS (Columbus) for road and cross. In US, the right one is sold for CX and the second one from the right is for road. But I use the second one for Japanese CX bikes. It's up to the bike (customer)...
Before I started KUALIS, I had a clear image in my head. I still have the idea and want to make it in the future... That is I want to do my job as a creative work in a clean and a creative space for KUALIS. Design, building a frame,,, all the processes of my work in a creative thought and space.
This (below) is the good example. This is one of the reasons I like and respect Firefly. They should have an idea to do a creative work in their new space. I like the directional movement of thier thought about their products and space. I cannot find any shop and small manufacturer like them.
