    Try to keep my posts public and not pm’d. I’ll spread the word about CIF. Presently, I’m having a pedicab frame built by some folk in Mexico who have a good track record. Will prob go with them instead of Blackwood Sheet Metal located behind Haiku. But got to check out your facilities one way or another, sooner or later. Got to make it out to Eartha Limited too. Mad about composting.

    Actually, OK. Got to talk to some folk at Third Hand who can coordinate this. Might make it there Weds. Won’t be able Sat. Sorry to repeat myself, rocking back and forth among the cobwebs, and slow chaos of specks of dust in the shaft of sunlight near the cracked pane of the basement window.

    Hi TomOver – please call or email before you visit – I’m not always there, and we’re not staffed for walk-in visits. Thanks! Looking forward to seeing how we can collaborate!

    @ alexbandar: Opting to bump CIF, instead of PMing you. As it turns out, might utilize your place to weld mounts to, and lengthen, a pedicab frame. Your fee is likely less than what Blackwood Sheet Metal would charge. Plus, hands-on learning is good. Can’t just live off of the fumes of abstractions.

    Steve Meyer who owns Mainstreet Pedicabs in Denver likely won’t have the frame until about 2 months or more. Another pedicabbie, Matt Soha, the guy pedaling the Short North with music and who’s most of the brains behind what I’m building, might be interested in CIF for other projects.

    Thanks, Tom! Note that we also have experience at making food trucks and food carts – pedicabs aren’t a big stretch from that. When you’re ready to do some work, please do feel free to contact me about a tour, project scope, fees, etc. Cheers!

    Should be able to do this within a week or so. Will email you. Your fee likely will be less than what Blackwood Sheet Metal would charge. Plus w/ CIF, we can actually be involved with the welding, hands-on, right?

    By Melanie McIntyre on April 8, 2013 at 8:00 am

    Once Alex Traxler began working out of a friend’s studio at the Columbus Idea Foundry, his desire to be creative professionally took over and he got a space of his own there. Shortly after, Traxler’s fiancé bought him a wooden necktie, and the novelty really got his creative juices flowing.
