Goat updates

Quite a bit going on in Goat-land which makes it a little tough to post more frequently. Anyway, here are a couple of quick updates.
-The Ti Goat is at paint right now. Russ is applying a fresh coat of Bamboo pain to a Ti frame, Rock Shox and Ti Goat Horn handlebars. This one should be sweet!

-Curtis has finished up 2 F-K-R frames which are also heading to AirArt. One will be a root beer brown with cream head and fork panels while the other will be the same except in bright red. We also had to convince Russ to pain and pinstripe some rims for the brown bike. Once this one is assembled, it is off to Mountain Bike Action for some testing! The red bike is a spec bike and is available for purchase. We'll probably build it up for display at the shop.

-Jeremy has another couple of frames in line as well. One will be Team Orange and heading to England while the other is (possibly) slated for a bright Kermit green.

-The whole imported Escape Route frame has been a supreme headache. The first sample frames were pretty close but we changed a handful of dimensions after riding them. The troublesome part was the drop outs, both frames ended up with distorted sliders pretty quickly. Supposedly, they were 4130 cro-moly which should have been fine so I am unsure as to what happened. It is enough to make me wonder what direction to take next. Doesn't seem to be a clear cut direction yet.

Anyway, that is what has been happening. As the temperatures drop a bit, the shop will likley slow a bit and we'll do a better job of keeping everyone up to date.
