    Dave, once again, a simply gorgeous frame! Please don't allow a thread of carbon to drape that frame.

    Thanks, I looked at the rest of the Flickr photoset and figured it out.

    Okay, I've always wanted to ask. Are these "pins" specially extruded Chrome Molybdenum or Stainless Steel, or are they just finish nails from your favorite local "independent" hardware store?

    They are POS finishing nails I buy by weight at the local Aubuchon atmo. Low tech is the new black.

    Mr Anderson, I can't seem to find your previous comments on the SS blades. I assume they ride like good steel forks ride, is the long radius, to me anyway, bend a requirement of the particular grade or your preference for the fork itself. I love the long gracefull arc as opposed to the more hockey stick look of some forks. Thanks.

    Yes, the stainless blades perform very much like other good quality steel "road" blades. With respect to the curve radius....I also prefer forks with a gradual curve and use a 12" radius bender for most of the forks that I build. However, 953 fork blades can not be bent and so they are delivered from Reynolds with the curve shown (they are also available straight).

    Thank you!

    That was my next question. I can imagine the lever req'd for those suckers and saves a whole operation in the shop too. Thanks.

    Joel (Clockwork) the art deco rack is true to the genre. The curving bolt slots (not sure if that is the correct name) are amazing. Superb work all around.

    Mr. Sachs:

    Even by the high standard you have set yourself, that is an exceptionally inspiring post. Thank you.

    Dave shouldn't be allowed to go first because it's got to be intimidating to try and follow that.

    Joel - that rack is sweet. I'm always excited to see that you posted and check out what you've been up to lately, it's always good stuff.

    I've laid hands on the Zukas 29er and it looks good, can't wait to see it built up and out on the local trails.

    I have spent way too much time staring at Dave's SS frame and drooling on my keyboard. The hi-polish lugwork contrasting with a slightly different finish on the tubing .... speechless.....
