    You could strap "Smells Like Teen Spirit" to a torpedo and shoot it deep into a North Korean military base. You could have the ghost of Art Linkletter swap verses with Don Ho, backed by an orchestra composed entirely of accordions. You could have Britney fucking Spears do an album's worth of covers produced by various drug-addled Hollywood DJs. Every version would crush. It wouldl emerge stronger and even more awesome. Nothing can harm that song.
    GO!

    Don, do you charge extra for seat and chain stay supports? And, what type of floor mounting options do you have for your jigs?

    P.S. you need to thing about mounting that jig to a strippers pole-it's so hot!!

    Yep, we do. You can see a pic of the tube holder mounted on a fixture here:


    For floors we offer a mobile stand you can see here but as heavy to ship & expensive as they are, I recommend most folks to build there own but we'll sell you one it you want it:


    My personal fixture I have mounted on a post bolted to the floor.

    Ugh, rust repair. Don't remind me, I have a '56 Type 1 sedan that needs to go into the body shop this month. It's cancer free (CA/Arizona car) but is not at all pretty. Every body panel has dents except the roof.

    How bad is the Single?

    Pretty bad, it'll cost about one new bike to get the body work/rust repair done on it and then probably another new bike to get it drivable.

    The look is different but as you can see it's the same old redneck on the inside.

    Custom framebuilding's flirtation with ironic hair, clothing, and throat beards has come to an end. Come NAHBS '12, pre-conceived notions will show up wearing a tie.

    I posted this in the classifieds, but here is good too. Probably should have put it here first...
    ************

    Anvil Bikeworks has a part-time, paid, apprentice/intern position available with a possibility to go full time. You may or may not learn how to build frames because that's not really what we do. What we do is make the best framebuilding tools known to man and the bicycle industry.

    We like to ride, talk bikes, and in general we like bike people. Ironic glasses, hair, throat beards, tattoos, or piercings are not required for this job. Being able to work hard, learn, add value, communicate socially, and present our company in a positive light is. You must also test positive for having a sense of humor. You will have an opportunity to learn machine shop processes, in fact, success in this position requires it. If you bring some of those skills to the table with you, so much the better. You do not have to be a machinist for this job, but knowing your way around machine shop machinery, CNC or manual, is a ~huge~ plus.

    It's not all rainbows and unicorns. You will also be required to sweep, clean, build crates, pack & ship, clean the bathroom, and a myriad of other tasks that go along with working in a small business. You will go home each day so dirty your mom won't recognize you. Don't worry, we do too. If you're one of those folks who thinks that everything your supervisor asks you to do is open for debate or negotiation, please don't apply.

    What we're really looking for is a perfectionist who knows when to quit; a hotshot bike mechanic type who wants to expand his universe into the machine shop side of things. You won't work as a mechanic, but we find that talent works really well when it comes to doing what we do. If you're a machinist, we'll certainly consider you, but we find it's very important that you be a "bike" person first & foremost. We can teach you machining, we can't teach you love for the bike culture & community.

    We need someone around 30 hours a week. Pay is $12/hr to start based on your abilities. A raise is possible after a 30-day trial period. There is the potential for full-time and up to $25+/hr if you turn out to be a real hotshot and are a dreamy fit with Elroy (your supervisor) & I. We are located south of Chatfield Reservoir off of Titan Road. Do not just show up at the gate. Call or email first so we can arrange a time to meet should we want to.

    To help you self-determine if you're qualified for this job, we've devised a little test. Using Google shows initiative but we'd rather you be able to finish the test without it. We don't expect you to get all the answers right, it's really just a way for you to self-evaluate and for us to see if you're a lying cheater. Send us your results with an introductory letter. Impress us. Trust that we will ask you more questions along these lines in person. Story problems and trick questions included.

    1. The lid for a box is 30” X 36”. The side boards are made of standard 1” pine dimensional lumber. What lengths should the side boards be?

    2. Put in order from smallest to largest: Letter F drill bit, 1/8”, 3mm, #7 drill bit, one hundred and thirteen thousandths, 10mm end mill, tap drill for 3/8-16 fastener, .250", 10 gauge steel plate.

    3. How many 8” pieces can you cut out of a 12’ long piece of material? Think about it, yo.

    4. If two sides of a right triangle are 3 and 4 feet long. How long is the hypotenuse?

    5. If a 2” ID tube is slit open with a ˝” cutter, how long is the piece if spread out flat?

    6. How many thousandths are in an inch?

    7. What does "five-tenths" mean to you?

    8. All other variables being equal what is the difference in length of a chainstay for a 24” inch wheel and a 29” wheel?

    9. Name 20 bicycle frame brands.

    10. What is the g-code for a rapid move?

    11. What does "mcx" mean to you?

    12. If the guy who signs your paycheck says he wants something done right away, how long should you wait before doing it?

    13. What is the difference between precision and accuracy?

    14. What does SFM mean to you?

    15. Use the word "interpolate" in a sentence.

    16. You walk into a machine shop and you find that none of the calculators work as you might expect them to. Why is that?

    Feel free to ask questions here but please don't PM me (this is a test). Look up our website for our contact email and phone number.

    Thank you for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you!
