You folks probably remember Guy Caputo -- he raced at Maxton and isn't done yet.  He also sells goodies for bikes and other stuff -- used to advertise here 'til the economy went kah-flooey.  He's not out of the game yet -- and is busy building a bike.  I've offered him the opportunity to show his build.  it's not a regular build diary -- but you'll get to see quite a bit of what he's doing (if I can figure out how to link his stuff to this Forum).  First attempt is here -- and you'll probably want to just paste the url into the browser on your machine.

You'll see the whole site -- including the folks that are helping him (sponsors, etc.).  I see the first one worked, so here's another link:
