and a PDX address; I'll see a huge gain in business?

So it would seem judging from the shear number of builders in the greater metro area. 20 guys doing the same bikes? Really? Are they all making money and this? If it's true, I'm destined to be a non-profit builder because I'm not moving to Portland any time soon. If anything it might help to move further away from Stumptown. To a cycling community that isn't so close to a nexus of cycling that PDX has become.

Pretty soon a statement like: 'Marcroft Cycles Not Made in Portland' might be cool.
