Here is the beginning of a new road frame for RV out of Austin. My first and only framebuilder's show was the Texas Handmade Show in Austin. They definitely got a lot of custom bicycles rolling around that town and I am glad to be getting one of my frames amongst them. Just got done cutting and mitering a couple of tubes and I always like to do a little check to make sure things are in line. I think I have the camera tilted a bit, luckily the level never lies. We have established that I am not a photographer. I actually have the rest of the tubes mitered but am waiting for RV's bottom bracket shell to be engraved. "Chava" is in reference to Jose Maria Jimenez, my favorite rider of all time. I put a lot of care into each miter. I spend about as much time on each miter as I do when I make a cheesecake. This means that I am either really slow at filing miters or I'm extremely fast in making cheesecakes, either way a lot of love goes into the both of them. I have read of builders doing their miters in less than a minute and thats great if your in a miter race but I don't like to rush. When this frame is done, the pave should melt away under you just like a bite of my cheesecake when it touches your tongue. I'll be back with more photos later. Miter race. I wonder what the payout is on one of those? Who cares?
