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.
Latest frame and fork, complete and ready for paint...
