    Robbie is a great bloke when you get to know him. He often drops into the shop or catch up at the local tavern for a drink as he holidays in my home town with his family a few times a year.

    Default New stuff

    I have had some frame lug project ideas rattling about in my cranium for over 12 years, then at the recent UK Bristol Bespoke show in April I had many conversations with my established frame building peers over many a splendid evening dinner along with few fine real ales :-). Their enthusiasm for these possible projects stimulated me to make some movement, so on return to the world wide head quarters of Llewellyn Custom Bicycles in sunny Queensland I was motivated to get busy and bring these projects to fruition. The 3D CAD was fired up on the Dell and for several plus weeks I worked, studied and experimented on developing a new surface technique for the vision of these 3D models. This new technique was formed which gave more scope and refinement in the model's design but technically detailed and tricky, but pleasing. It is a case of a 100 hours to work out how to do it and then only 8 hours to do the final model. The next step was the 3D prototypes printed by acquaintances to look over and tweak the shore line aesthetics. When the tweaks were done, it was press the green go button for the tool maker to create the wax shooting moulds for the investment casting process at the foundry. These new tools are being made at this time and in some weeks time the first samples will arrive.
    Stay tuned for new Crescendo and Cadenzia socket seat stay lugs to fit Columbus tubes later this year.
    Next is new sweet looking BB shells and fork crowns with a soft flow to them and easy to use, however I have much on my plate outside of bikes, so I have no idea when.

    Default Old MAX stuff

    Mark's 13 year old Llewellyn Max road frame is having some dents filled and repaint. Looking at the frame's seat lug reminds me of the many hours I spent reworking the lugs to an acceptable appearance and function. The counter bore for the seat bolt and the reshaping of the shorelines. 45 degree seat stay fitting. Those who have built with MAX lugs will understand the toil required to sweeten the frame set.

    Default Old pics found

    Rummaging through a mess of photos last night, I find these two. I have long forgotten the name of the village in 1994 France. I was going OK and tagged onto the front group, waited, had good legs at the end of the 100km and then started launching off to break it down. This young fella went clear with some laps to go, I went across, we swapped and then I decided with my good legs to proceed to take him apart. I am hazy on the details but I remember my notion of "I am going to win this one, time to crush him confidence" vapourised as this fella put his head down and left me chasing in vain yet again for another second place finish. I always pondered, you can have them swaying and hanging on a thread and then with 10 - 15kms to go, they change from 6 cylinder to V8 engines, yeah, I always wondered about that...........

    One can make a fork or create a fork. I rework the fork crown, thin the shoreline of the side windows to get the tapers to the changing radius of the sine curves, then break the edges, round the corners and give it all a smooth appearance under the paint.
    Why?
    Because it is pleasing to my eye and touch.

    Default Head tube logos the Llewellyn way

    A stainless badge is cut by "light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation"
    a bit of filing via the jeweller’s files, some pressing with formers
    cook up with 56% silver rod fed in




    File sand and polish then some Joey paint magic
    Dazza gets his special shaped blade to break the edges of the masking/paint




    A touch up polish with the little felts and the special green rouge



    to Dazza's tragic mind, it seems to be the genuine way to do the head tube logo,
    so it has to be
