Yesterday, I rode my custom Bob Jackson Special Tourist. Today, I rode my Bob Jackson fixie. The fixie was a surprise gift from Mike. We were in Portland back in 2008 for the North American Handmade Bike Show (NAHBS) . We visited several bike shops, one being River City Cycles where I saw a black Bob Jackson frame decked out with gold-anodized components. I must have made a comment about how much I liked it and, before much time had passed and unbeknownst to me, Mike had ordered a custom Bob Jackson fixie frameset and built it up with a gold-anodized seatpost, stem, handlebars, hubs, pedals, chain, and crankset and gold tires to match. Lucky me!
