    Man that noble looks sleek. Looks so well balanced and.. just... right. Love it. Always kinda digging' Noble's work

    The FF pix are also cool. Love the purple fork and the various anodizing touches.

    The seat tube lugs from Dazza are a work of art.
    I came here for the socks.

    Man, Dazza's seat lug is incredible. I cannot find the right word, it's more than gorgeous!

    Burcak Erbil, Brelis Cycles: I really like stainless steel frames and styeel/stainless steel forks. You posted a very nice bike in FNL 413 that caught my eye. Very tasteful build and the frame looks great.

    I noticed that on the frame seat tube there is a sticker that reads “Columbus Niombi” (I had to look up what that is, no frame builder am I, Ha!) and yet the chain stays and seat stays are bare and shiny. Are they 953 stainless? If it is a frame with mixed tube types, whats trait made you and/or the customer go with these two tubes types?

    I can see the 953 sticker on the fork, awesome, they look the best IMO. The painted crown and white bands are a nice touch. Again, great detail.

    I went to your web site to look at your work (clean shop btw!) and I like the attention to detail, you even weigh your stuff! Nice work and thank you for posting here, great to see bikes made from all over the world.

    Hi Wayne,
    Thanks a lot for the compliments. But I'll have to admit I'm not 100% happy with all the details of my work, like recently the fillet finishes; I cannot get them as smooth and flowing like the best builders out here. Especially at the BB area; hence no photos of there

    This frame will have a big and strong rider; so I choose 32 and 35mm dia Life TT and DT, an externally butted Zona seattube for 31.6 seatpost, XCr stays and 953 fork blades. The decal you see is a Columbus Life; although I realize it is a bit questionable with such a diverse combo, but I thought this will reflect the frame character best, and it is clearly evident stays are some kind of a stainless ;) The customer insisted on steel forks to keep the retro look and feel. Thus a classic 1 1/8 headset. 953 blades seem a little skinny compared to the other tubes but they are the only stainless choice.

    I like to keep the graphics lean and simple, partly because I like it this way, but partly because I paint the frames myself and my abilities are yet limited on this.

    It's funny that I don't think the weight should be such a big issue on bikes, yet I still wonder about the weight of the frames and components. Maybe this will diminish after building a sufficient number of frames. :)

    Dear Burcak, I also think your frame is a lovely looking frame. I have used Reynolds 921 stainless fork blades. They have the advantage that it is possible to adjust the rake by cold setting. see http://www.velocipedesalon.com/forum...ry-662-41.html Best wishes. Paul.

    I wondered about the tube selection, thanks for the write up explaining it all. I like the way it all came together. And I agree with the customer, that fork is perfect for that frame and build.
    It's a nice bike and I'm sure it rides as good as it looks. And a happy customer I'm sure he is.

    Also, by never being quite content and at the same time, being curious about every aspect of what you make are the hallmarks of a refining tradesman.

    Keep going and keep posting. I look forward to seeing more of your work here in future FNLs. Along with some great forum members, it's one of the best aspects of this site.
