I did a post last year discussing my reasons for picking Dave Wages of Ellis Cycles as the frame builder to build my dream frame. I talked about how Dave had what I call the "Wow Factor". A hard to describe quality, but at the top of my list for choosing Dave. This past weekend in Indianapolis, IN at the 5th Annual North American Handmade Bicycle Show seems there were many others who could see what I saw in Dave's talent as a frame builder. Dave Wages won the Award for Best Lugged Bicycle. Way to go Dave!!!
