Working on a big-tire road bike.
Snafus with with shop heat have me building wheels in the living room today.
Finally ready to ride.

A small detail you may not have noticed: I couldn't get the wood veneer to take the compound curves of the alloy fork crown. I thought of using silver texalium to visually integrate with the lugs and fittings but then decided to try basalt.

The screwcap is a winemaker joke.
Last shots of this, promise.
I began a few projects last week
Ben's fat bike front triangle is done.
Guy's offroad touring chainstays are tacked to the dropouts and tire clearance is good.
And I'm trying a new seat stay configuration on my own 650B mountain bike
Now, I'm going out to ice the bobsleigh track for my kids in my backyard as it's -24C (-11.5F)
Getting close to finishing Frame #2. Took me about 1/256th of the time my first one did!
No week would be complete for me without some tooling! Modified a fellow forum members Bringheli BB Post & made him some new cups based off his request.
Flatted the shaft so the Set Screw would no longer mar it causing problems with the precision bores.
