Steve Potts (assisted by his handsome dog, Cowboy) is a member of that club of builders who bring to NAHBS what happens to be “hot off the press” at showtime and bring home awards. Steve’s clean two-pass welds and functional designs have won him Best TIG and Best Ti frame ribbons in the past- will we see another this year? Action shots after the jump.,,
BIKERUMOR: What are your main building materials?
Steve: The material I use the most is titanium.
BIKERUMOR: What’s new with your company since NAHBS last year?
Steve: This past year we have moved to a new, larger facility.
BIKERUMOR: Any killer custom bike builds in that time?
Steve: All of my bike builds are custom builds, so most of them are pretty interesting and very functional.
BIKERUMOR: What were some of your newer inspirations for recent bikes?
Steve: I am building a lot more Road/Gravel bikes this year, mostly because people want to broaden their riding possibilities.
BIKERUMOR: What are you building this year that’ll draw a crowd?
Steve: I am bringing a nice “Campy” Road bike, a nice Gravel Grinder, and a 29er Plus!
BIKERUMOR:If you had to build a bike for a Kentucky Derby style race (think short, all out effort on deep, loose dirt), what would you build and why?
Steve: I would build my favorite bike, a 29er with my Rigid Type II Fork – a super efficient bike!
BIKERUMOR: Bourbon or beer?
Steve: A nice cold beer after a hard days work or a good ride.
