Gettin’ back on the blog horse
I’ve slipped on keeping up with this, and I’m sorry. I finished up Jack’s bi-lam 29er, spent a lot of time trying to finish rewiring the Dart, went to NAHBS and started another frame.
Here’s a mediocre phone picture of what is undoubtedly one of my best frames. A mix of Columbus Zona, True Temper OX Platinum and Dedacciai Zero Due with some good ol’ 4130 mixed in. Internal brake cable routing and Black Cat Swinger dropouts. I’ll try to get some good pictures after it’s painted.
I started a 700c commuter bike recently, and it’s pretty basic. Fillet brazed, track dropouts and rack/fender mounts.
In the back ground you can see my new (old) arbor press. My buddy Nathan scored it for $30 on my behalf from a fab shop next to his office that was liquidating all it’s gear. Thanks, Nathan. More posts up soon, but that’s it for now.
