    Hey, I only started it a couple of days ago.

    Truth be told the only reason I started it at all was to contact Clem Angus, a local who does excellent gold leaf lettering. He will be doing the owner's name on that bike above in the next few days. I'd lost his contact details so that was the easiest way to find him.

    Now it's started I'd better keep it going...

    I didn't realize you'd started one! Hooray for you. That is a properly schmick frame. Awesome.

    It is already apparent that I should have done so well before this. I now have more followers than posts or days live, I'll have to try to get ahead of the curve.

    And here I was coming to give you a prod!

    It wouldn’t hurt to use the gold in this thread to post some history! It wouldn’t have to be “new” stuff.

    You can do little videos too, which is probably worth doing for the before/after oiling thing!

    Thanks for the tip. I will do a little video of the filament winder running.

    You’re probably too close to notice, but your stuff is not getting worse!

    I promised my daughter in law that I'd make a rack for her bike when she came up here.


    Rack_1

    IMO steel comes into its own when there are severe constraints on tube diameter. This is fillet brazed from 10mm OD cold drawn 304 SS.

    I kept it fairly simple as she just wants to be able to get the laptop etc to work rather than being about to embark on a world tour laden with 40 kg.

    Default Boxing

    So I came up with the idea of recycling old coreflute signs to make shipping boxes:

    Signs

    Only to find that UPS won't accept non cardboard packaging. Oh Well, carboard it is:

    Cardboard

    The pattern in the foreground folds up to make the tray in the background. The frame is placed in the lower tray with appropriate spacers (which I made from the coreflute signs)

    Bottom

    Then the sidewalls go around it:

    Sides

    and another tray goes on top. No pic due to camera problems, sorry.

    Is the width of the coreflute elements intended to match the box width to support the structure and minimise side impacts? I’m guessing as much.

    Got it in one.

    The wedge in the rear dropouts and the two C pieces at the BB and headtube are the support points for the frame. If you look closely you'll see that the coreflute is also oriented so the flutes run in the direction of anticipated load.

    The scheme almost eliminates the use of foam / bubblewrap at the cost of a few cable ties (which are reuseable if you release the ratchet mechanism with a small screwdriver rather than cutting them off).

    FWIW I also used the landfill biodegradable packing tape developed by Biogone in Melbourne.

    BTW note the lack of a fork in the pics. I actually had everything boxed up waiting for the courier when I realised I'd left it out.

    Excellent and I’m sure it will make it across the Pacific safely.
    When should I expect it to arrive and settle into it’s new home in Oregon?
    All joking aside, it’s great to see the thought and detail you devote to everything you touch.

    For reasons known only to UPS it made it to Singapore, then Shenzen, then to Kuala Lumpur. Go figure.

    Welcome azmilmurad. Nice looking bike there. We need more pics in our Lyrebird gallery if you feel so inclined.

    Vineyard Sunset _1

    Vintage = crazy work schedule = no time to make bikes.

    The sunsets over the vineyard are partial compensation: this was tonight.
