    Default New Santa Fe Style

    Sorry, It's not Friday. At my age I could be dead by then. Anyway kinda busy with a student this week, so I thought I'd get this out today. Enjoy or not..
    This one is a 58 x 58cm Polished dropouts, sterling silver and genuine turquoise. The head tube treatment is a concho belt that doubles as a paint protector.

    PS this is the one using the silver butter that I previewed in earlier posts last week..

    Can you talk some about the seat stays?

    Sure, the Spirit stays are big 16mmID-17mmOD. They just look ugly, to my eye, if attached in any traditional manner. So I started doing this 15-16 frames ago, because it works. Stronger attachment, smaller rear triangle, visually about the same angle as down tube, and a great place to stick some turquoise stones. I've been contemplating some variations on this idea, but so far I like this solution best..
