Sprocket Making Video from andy chapman on Vimeo.

Nice little video of the making of the world-famous Tree sprocket at the world headquarters of Phil Wasson’s shop, Super Rat Machine Works. Damn, I miss Phil and Courtney, and my hot-pepper infused lattes (heh) from the Songbird.

Found at TheComeUp.

As a kid, there was a certain magic to getting a new frame, or hell, even a new part. Especially when it was something that you KNEW was not only rad looking, but also built to last – it is a feeling I still get today. Any part I’ve purchased from S&M Bikes usually fits that bill, as they continue their tradition of hand-building frames, forks and bars in California for S&M, Fit, and Metal. Vital has a video tour of their operations led by Sean McKinney, shot in October by Bret Rohlfing. Always dig this kind of behind-the-scenes look into turning raw metal into rolling machines.
