Fillet brazed steel bikes, handcrafted in Oklahoma.

Yeah, I’m a slacker

When it comes to blogging, anyway.

I’ve finally started a fat bike for myself, and while I have plenty of pictures of the front end, I”m going to share some seatstay pics today.

 

Start with some 5/8″ .035 4130

 

 

Put the lower bend in

 

There you have it

Now, it’s time for the upper bend

 

Now you have what I’d put on a normal mountain bike

After some looking, and holding up and measuring, I decide they need to go back into the press for a little more upper bend

There ya go, they should wrap around a fattie like Tommy Chong’s hand.

All in an hour’s work. I’ll get another post up soon and show you the rest of the frame.
