My good friend Jeremy Shlachter builds custom bicycles by hand in Fort Worth, TX. As a novice to the process of bike building, I am blown away by the attention to detail and the focus it takes to put together a frame. The measurements alone take a day or two to get right. I've been documenting the process in what will undoubtedly be an ongoing series. What I'd really like to do is shoot right on through to the point where it's handed off to its new owner. I've been shooting video as well, and I'm hoping to make a short documentary following the process, from pieces of raw tubing to a fully functional cycle.
