Last Saturday evening, I was honored to co-emcee a Velocipede Salon “Smoked Out Live” special along with Josh Simonds.
We had a rock-star panel of frame builders who all graciously gave up a couple of hours of their evening to answer questions for both a live audience and a live web cast.
Included in our evening were:
– Gary Smith of Independent Fabrications
– Nick Crumpton of Crumpton Cycles
– Tim O’Donnell of Shamrock Cycles
– Eric Estlund of Winter Bicycles
-Dave Wages of Ellis Cycles
– Rody Walter of Groovy Cycleworks
LISTEN & WATCH THE VIDEO!
The “Smoked Out” session begins around 29:30. Previous to that, there are some interviews and talking among ourselves! Enjoy!
Out thanks to George Thomas of “Over The Top Radio” for his patience in recording this!

GUESTS: DAVE WAGES; DAVE SMITH
At this writing, Diane and I, along with the rest of the U.S., are still struggling to process yesterday’s horrific events in Newtown, Connecticut. We hope you’ll enjoy today’s show, despite the fact that everything in the world of cycling is insignificant in comparison to the senseless loss of so many young, innocent lives.
Today we begin with an interview with Dave Wages, custom framebuilder and owner of Ellis Cycles. Dave worked for both Serotta and Waterford before launching his own shop in 2008 in Waterford, Wisconsin. His artistic eye and the exquisite details of his frames are stunning.
Rounding out the hour is a chat with Dave Smith, who coaches athletes in many sports including running, biking and polo. Dave’s company, Flow Funktional Fitness is based in Staffordshire, England, but his clients come from all over the world. He has coached Olympic Medalists and TdF stage winners as well as amateurs of all levels.
