    physically - 1) the head badge, intro-ed about 4 years ago, is in it third iteration. 2) the pegorichie tubing, which was just barely born then, is so much further evolved i wouldn't know where to start. 3) the lower head lug's tool was revised to change the shoreline about 2-3 years ago. 4) the rs bb shell was just a dream 5 years ago but now used by me and also sold worldwide (without the rs cutout) to scores of other effbuilders. 5) and many hand-made details have evolved and/or reached a balance point between ease of manufacture and their decorative elements that they bring to the frame. i'm sure there's a lot more, but i am swallowing a smuttynose and watching jerseylicious, so try back later.

    metaphysically - everything flows much more instinctively now compared to then. i am very comfortable coming to the bench and letting my muscle memory and intuition take over. i rarely think (or over think) about the operations or processes anymore. well, i am aware of the hand-eye stuff and am confident in my coordination and skill sets. but the work opens up for me with much less effort now than ever before. it took a long time to reach this comfort level, but i am there now. if the word arrogant could possibly have positive connotations, i'd say it's valid to call me arrogant about my place in all this now. when there was a time i'd regularly second guess myself and my choices, i freely admitted it. these days (compared to five years ago) i am in the place i wanted to be atmo.

    ok this is very interesting to me.

    the feel thing and the not thinking thing....

    as many of you guys know, im a tennis pro/coach. when im working on a particular stroke, i concentrate on feel and rarely get into details or go by "what the book says". when your playing tennis, you can't possible thinking about steps 1,2 3, etc. you just remember the feeling and everything happens naturally. sorta like sex...

    richard-- i think your on top something here thats rarely been discussed. everyone talks about the steps, or the look, but rarely the feel. after countless hours, there is no thinking, only feel -- and when you're in "the zone" everything is perfect.

    hrmph!

    the funny (sic) thing about it is i have always done it this way; i just wasn't as comfortable about it in my own skin as i am now.
    never any slide rules, no fit formulas, no metallurgy or engineering training.
    in my case i believe coming into the trade unwittingly kept me sheltered from the many (or several) demons others deal with atmo.

    Hey Richard, give us a report on the Cole carbon wheels your team is riding this year? Who's using them, which model is it, are they holding up, the whole shebang.

    Craig
    here are the cliffs notes atmo -
    some of us are racing T-38s straight out of the catalog, and some of us (me...) are on a revised pair (i.e. prototype) of them that have a 23mm width
    across the top to give added bond security between the base tape and the mastik glue atmo. the default wheel of the rs 'cross team continues to be
    the T-25 tubulars that are the wheels most often seen in pictures of us racing. the goal is to make that wheel with a 22-23mm width as well for all the
    same reasons, and with hope, some of these will be a reality after the first of the year. we have two seasons on cole wheels without a broken spoke,
    a wheel needing truing, or a bike change in the pit because of the wheel atmo. righteous.
