Black Mountain Cycles frame update...

Sorry for not posting much info recently to keep those folks with deposits updated, but rather than guessing at updates, I wanted to have my ducks in a row. So, after sorting out some details with the frames, decals, paint...I have confirmation that the frames were received by the painter after passing all the QC checks.

So, the scoop is, frames in for paint and decals this week. The paint is a two-step process with a wet paint for the color. Decals are applied and then a clear powder coat is applied for a beautiful glossy look that is also super durable.

The frames will be finished with paint and ready for boxing the end of this week or the beginning of next week. They should be on a boat from Taiwan by the end of next week and here in Point Reyes Station the first or second week of January, 2011.

You know you want one so don't hesitate.
This is a limited production. The first run is 25 road frames and 25 cross frames. They are $595 for frame/fork and all the little bits that go to making a frameset a frameset (seat clamp, cable guide, dropout adjusters for the cross bike, down tube shift boss cable stops for the road bike, braze-on bolts...). If you want a frameset (and I know you do), I would recommend plunking down a 50% deposit to secure yours. You can call me with a credit card number (415-663-8125). You can send me the deposit via paypal (blackmtncycles(@)gmail(dot)com). You can mail a check to me. Heck you can even visit me in the shop to do it in person. What ever your preference do it.

If you have any questions about the process to order a frameset or if you have questions, feel free to call or e-mail me. You can also search this blog for posts about the frames at this link: Black Mountain Cycles Frames. There's also information on the website frame page: Black Mountain Cycles Frames.

Here's some pictures of frames and the colors for your viewing pleasure. Call now! Operators are standing by!

I'll also keep open the offer I made in June when I thought frames would be here in August to those who pay in full between now and December 31:

Option 1: Free shipping anywhere in the lower 48 states. If you are out of that area, I'll contribute $25 toward shipping.

Option 2: If you don't need shipping or if you just like option 2, I'll throw in a Black Mountain Cycles t-shirt, pint glass, and water bottle at no charge with your frame order.
