TripleThreeFab hails from Seattle, Washington, and builds in steel (regular and stainless) and titanium. For the show, they brought an eTAP-ready road bike (front in pic above), another road bike with sparkly paint, a cross bike and the builder’s own do anything, go anywhere mountain bike/commuter.

The eTAP bike gets no shift ports or guides for a streamlined look, which is accentuated by its shapely stays. Check ’em out and more from Caylor and DeSalvo, below…

The ends of the seatstays come to a point, which is mirrored on the chainstays, you just can’t tell until you get on top of them.

The dropouts are cut into the outer edge of the ends for the chainstay, which gives it a unique look.

This “commuter” is 333fab builder Max Kullaway’s personal bike and could be anything from mountain to cyclocross but is currently set up to be his dream commuter bike.

The Paragon dropouts were attached to a round tube that let him weld it on Breezer style instead of cutting a slot into the chainstay (Like what they did with the eTAP bike. Click to enlarge).

DESALVO

DeSalvo’s bikes maintain their classic aesthetic, but get some modern updates. This OS Road Titanium gets larger 1-3/4″ diameter butted downtube, a 44mm headtube and oversized straight gauge top tube. Connecting all that to the rear is a butted seat tube and larger T47 bottom bracket shell.

DeSalvo also does a lot of lugged frames, but this year’s collection was heavier on the welded ones. This bike does show a lugged crown fork, and with the fatter gumwall tires could be inching close to a “gravel grinder” for him.

CAYLOR

Gunnar Caylor’s been building frames for something like 40 years!

This track bike puts the fork crown low, with a notch to clear the tire. The seatstays blend into a seat collar lug and run the bolt through the tops of the stays to clamp the post.

While Caylor focuses on a classic aesthetic, he’s offering modern options like disc brakes.
