Good and Fast, but not so Cheap.

Thanks to all for the very nice comments and inquires as to buying one of the GFC Triangles. Unfortunately, as seems to always be the case, getting something made, in the small volumes to meet the current small demand, is not so cheap. To get them manufactured (beyond the current ‘by hand and machine and favour’ process) involves paying the tooling cost for a custom triangle die, which – just for reference – is roughly the same price as a new single speed mountain bike frame!  This is exactly why these are called called Lost Projects, it’s familiar territory for me.

But in order to maintain the momentum, and in an attempt to lower the cost of making these things, the wooden versions have evolved, and seem to be a bit of a hit. They just seem right in wood, as precise but a little more humble.

So hopefully, soon, some wooden version will be available for sale. In the meantime, if anyone knows of any potential ‘Angels of Lost Projects’, I’d be more than happy to hear from them.
