Knocked the front triangle out this morning on this build while waiting on the chain stays and dropouts to arrive. Gonna be another road frame built around 30c tires. Did a little custom fab on the down tube turning into a bi-oval complements of a vice and thick piece of leather. Head tube seems long in this pic. It's got integrated bearing cups brazed in.
Another crooked photo of a level bottom bracket. I have to quit doing that. The level doesn't lie.
Always shooting for the tightest of miters.
Not as light as the True Temper S3 bi-oval down tube but will be much stronger on the off-roads this bike is being built to handle.
Hopefully the chain stays will arrive tomorrow and I can get back on it in a day or two. Temperatures finally warmed a bit back up into the 40's. I got a short spin around town yesterday morning but today is pretty soupy and not really wanting to get my feet wet.
There once was a day that I wasn't such a puss.
Screw it! I'm going.Nobody calls me a puss without getting a little dirty.
Like my granny used to say, "I'm bad ass and I know it." She used to have a floor mat on her front porch with a lever action rifle sitting next to it and it read, "Welcome-To Try Your Luck". The mailman was scared to death of her. He used to just throw the letters in the yard and run away as fast as he could.
Thanks for stopping by.
