    An article on the lesser known of the two species of Lyrebird in The Conversation today:

    https://theconversation.com/listen-t...eard-of-177627https://theconversation.com/listen-t...eard-of-177627.

    I've never seen an Alberts but there is apparently a population near my sister's place so I live in hope.

    Inside Out

    If the internal cable routing comes out of the frame and then back in again, is it still internal?

    My solid cored chainstays preclude standard internal cable routing; I use 7mm ID carbon tubing from the down tube to the exit points.

    The idea here is to avoid sharp bends: there are three long radius bends in the whole thing, each of which is 15 degrees or less so feeding cable through is a doddle.

    OK,cunning. But how in god’s name do you do the latest joint aesthetics with those tubes “in the way”?

    Much filleting required, still in progress. I'll post a pic when I'm done.

    So, not a lot of bike work going on: la Nina vintages are always difficult.

    We picked the Nebbiolo on Friday and this coincidence tickled me.

    I label the bins with the picking date, the bin number, the variety and the net weight.

    Because the tubes are carbon they are quite fragile so they are protected by burying them in filleting compound.

    The whole joint is then given its second carbon wrap, encompassing the filleted tubes

    The purplish looking filler smooths the junction between the wood and the carbon so that the next layer of wood doesn't split when I try to make it take a compound curve.

    Is the wrap done with the Textreme tape?

    No, that only arrived today (Thanks Chik). This was done with standard twill fabric and unidirectional ribbon which I make into quasi prepreg (I've covered the process involved here before).
