Frame Master

One of the other things I did on Good Friday besides fishing, was a visit to Curt Goodrich's bicycle works. He's got a cool location in Northeast Minneapolis where he builds custom frames. Curt makes great frames. He is the guy who built the Tim Isaac, Match Cycles Schwinn Paramount frames in the late '90s. His brazing on lugged frames is spectacular. There's a cadre of frame builders in the USA who are known as the "Keepers of the Flame." Goodrich's cyclocross frame-set won the top prize in the category at the North American Hand Built Bicycle Association awards this year. In fact, he's sponsoring a cyclocross team this year that will compete in the local races. The picture is of one of the frames he's currently building.
