Cleo’s 29er is done. All that’s left is a couple of shakedown rides and paint.
Stainless cable guide for the front derailleur. All the cables route under the down tube for that clean look. The low mount dropouts from Paragon have the caliper mounts between the stays, so the brake line can come from under the bb and along the chainstay.
That’s look pretty nice with her wheels.
Anyway, that’s it for now. More to come soon.
It’s just that I’ve been busy. And lazy. Working on Cleo’s frame, going to NAHBS, working my day job and all that other stuff. The weather’s finally nice and the trails are dry so I’ve been trying to get rid of my gamer’s tan. The show was a big confidence booster. I saw a lot of work there that I can match or surpass. (There was also a lot of stuff there that is beyond me right now) I feel a lot better about going into business. Carl Strong’s business seminar was great, as well. Lots of stuff that I never thought about, and a simple way to look at things to make you a profitable builder but not strip the fun out of it. That’s what it’s all about after all, making a living doing something fun. If I wanted to do something that isn’t fun, I could just keep my current job. Any way, Cleo’s bike is almost done and Brent’s fork will start very soon. (I know, pics or it didn’t happen)
There are more pics, but they’re on my laptop so I’ll have to post them later. More to come soon.
