fender eyelets

March 14, 2015

 this    from a series of amazing shorts Alistair told me about

if you think this guy is just installing fenders, you're mistaken. go back a few videos and watch how he customizes every little thing. every   little   thing.      it's a joy to watch. to watch someone at ease with a huge variety of tools to watch a master craftsman in his natural habitat     a guy who knows his way around a work bench. 

if you've ever half-ass zip-tied your way through another Seattle winter you can appreciate a set of full fenders, but these go way beyond "full"  this guy is not just unwrapping and installing a set of fenders.   

and watch a few more of his videos. those fenders are just a hint a taste a whiff of what else he's doing with bikes

I did finally get to the end of watching every one of those videos. I'm still amazed that they exist, and that they are on youtube. They represent an incredible insight into Mr. Hirose's bike making methods. I'd definitely like to have a beer with this guy someday.
