I really really really wish there were more videos like this out there. That was very well put together, fun to watch, and I actually learned quite a few things while watching it! It's like "How It's Made", but better!

Not to all videographers: Please make more videos like this!!

I would PERSONALLY love to see more videos done in this fashion of various fabrication techniques, assembly processes, welding, metal shaping, and then, and then, and then....... Anything related to what kind of stuff we do around here!

Thanks for sharing that!

this guys fixtures and shop equipment is outstanding. i know guys who claim to be professional car builders with less tooling.

imagine this dudes neighbors the first time they saw the inside of his shop, "so, what do you do here?" "oh, not much, just build bicycles.."

"SoulCraft" how appropriate. Love to see craftsmen pour their souls into their work.

Did anyone notice how the seat post pops back out of the seat tube at about 4:30? That's how it works when you are line on line. NICE!

Wow! Seeing him work only reminds me of what a what little skills I really have. A true craftsman in any trade is something to behold.

I love the way this video is shot and put together. I think whoever did it could shoot a film about taking out the trash and it would be cool to watch.

Outstanding video and craftsmanship. I originally took a welding class to learn how to do fillet brazing so I could build bicycle frames...took a very very simple crack at it. Let me tell you...building a nice quality bicycle frame is every bit the amount of work the video shows...he makes it look effortless...sign of a true craftsman.

Thanks for the vid, seeing these always makes me want to take my meager skills up a notch.
