Re: [CR]Any KOF female builders?

Example: Framebuilding:Norris Lockley

Diane Blake is a good pal of mine. She has built many lugged frames, but never as a business. She currently is making very accurate recreations of high wheel bikes. She has not been to another cirque. When the date changed a few years ago it has conflicted with her daughters racing. The Florida state championships are that weekend in June. Her daughter Michele is the current junior(boys and girls) state champ in the rr, crit, and tt.

Two, perhaps three Le Cirques ago, a lady named Diane showed up at cirque with two bikes, a highwheeler and a purple steel lugged frame. Here is a photo of Brian Baylis taking the boneshaker out for a spin around Battleground's parking lot.

Diane built both bikes and as far as I can remember, she never did attend another Cirque.
