Last fall, I stopped by Gallus Cycles in Fort Worth to see what Jeremy Schlacter was working on. Jeremy hand builds (brazes) bike frames, and his work has been turning heads at the Southwest Swap Meet and NAHBS. He studied framebuilding with Doug Fattic and Koichi Yamaguchi, and he’s been making frames ever since, without power tools.
Jeremy is a great, modest guy, and he has a real passion for riding and building. I’d like to own one of his bikes, someday.
Here are a few photos, and you can see the rest on Flickr.
