    It is becoming more frequent than not and I welcome it. Some great tunes playing in the shop, motivation and level of stoke are high, the steel is feeling the vibe as well and things are simply falling into place.

    Hey Jason. I use Fillet Pro when joining stainless to steel. I do these particular dropouts in two steps. Step one, with the scallop end open, I can really get in there and lay down some filler on both sides of the dropout. Step two, I simply add the cap to the scallop. All said and done it takes me approximately 20-30 minutes to complete the dropouts.

    This metallic chestnut brown seems to be a favorite for some. I'm liking it as well.

    Take it all apart, clean it, and put it back together with fire.

    I was just going to ask about this, catching up on Smoked Out after a long stint of obsessing over aircooled VWs. I have looked at a lot of frame building pictures, and I don't think I've ever seen anyone cap stays at the dropout like that. Is it something you just decided to do, or something you saw somewhere else?

    Thanks, Doug

    I have done both methods of finishing. My previous method of completely filling the dropout end with Fillet Pro (I use stainless steel dropouts) seems to me to be a waste with no additional benefit. Understand that these scallops are fairly big, which leave a considerable size void to be filled. Also, I only use this capping method on polydrops or low mount disc dropouts. Because of the length of the dropout, I have to cut the chainstay shorter than say for a hooded dropout. Cutting the chainstay shorter gets into the larger diameter section of the chainstay.

    I actually saw Joel Greenblat (Clockwork Bikes) do this to some really big diameter chainstays. I have also seen this same idea used on Steve Potts type 2 forks.

    Probably my one and only flatmount. The glacier blue has me feeling cool and refreshed.

    I've never heard of Thrive before but I am impressed. Your frames are super nice. I especially love the clean aesthetics. I have a little itch for a gravel bike and these pics are scratching it!

    Thank you! Deliberately simple is pretty much my approach with the frames I build.

    Simple lines that seem to capture the right amount of curve and elegance. What do you think?
