    Steve, firstly, glad to hear that your surgery went well. I hope your recovery goes well.

    I had a question about the mitering set up in your blog posting above. It looks like a slick solution for those of us that don't have mills with tilting heads. In this setup, are you phasing the miter by cranking the rotary table until the tube block contacts the mills table? Seems like that would work but I wanted to check with you to see if that's what's going on.

    Thanks.

    Alistair.

    Steve, I don't think I phrased my question very clearly. I was wondering how you keep the BB miter 90 degrees out of phase with the DT/HT miter. You've got a tubing block bolted to the tube and I was wondering what you're referencing off of to get the block to turn through 90 degrees when you cut the second miter.

    Don't know if that's any clearer. I hope so.

    Thanks.

    Alistair.

    Gotcha. nope - just an angle finder. it's magnetic & stuck to the mill head. There would be more then one way to skin a cat on this, you could phase it off the bed with a square, level, protractor ect. the Paragon blocks are great for this kind of on the fly stuff, although i've done my tubes this way for years, since I got my mill. I got the system idea from Paul Sadoff. - Garro.

    Steve, thanks for the reply. Makes sense now. It's a clever solution and I'd never seen anything like it before.
    It's cool that you got the concept from Mr. Sadoff.

    Cheers.

    Damn, Thanks, Anthony. My "cruisers" are my homage to the classic era of the balloon tired bicycle & the roles they played in the formative years of mountain biking. When I started biking there were still allot of "ballooners" "clunkers" "townies" and "shitbikes" rolling around cobbled out of old paperboy bikes, roadbike parts and motorcycle pieces. It was cool. if it didn't fit, you made one.
    Also, I had a few friends with old Cook's Bros cruisers, which I lusted after, hard. The Breezers, too, and the Willets "Mounties."
    I still have five Pacenti MTB crowns, maybe for an Anniversary run of cruisers?
    When I get old I may just make cruisers all full-blown with my vision & lines and parts........
    It's really light. < 22lbs built. All .035" & .028" in diameters from 1"-1.125" & 1.25". Classic MTB tubing sizes.
    One of my passions about cruisers, which seems off-base, is that they ARE so much work - they are all straight gauge 4130 covered with grease, mill scale & cat hair which all has to be painstakingly scrubbed off, except for the HT, ST & CS's. everything else has been scrubbed, curved, bent, flattened slotted & polished right here.
    I think there are more then 10 out there but less then 12. right around there.
