    Customer bike #001 in the stand for sanding and prep:



    I've purposely only used 3 digits for my customer numbers, because when I have to move to 4 it will be a *big* deal. Gotta have a target, right?

    World's widest rear brake bridge? Off to the LBS in search of a longer brake nut.

    yeah that is absurd

    you might need to chop down one of the longer nuts for a front brake

    Nothing concrete, but hopefully the beginnings of something.

    Doing my wife's bike was really enjoyable. Getting stuck into this one has been too. I've offered to do 5 frames at cost for any member of my local club and I have a mate who wants a bike done; then I have a spare frameset to practice on and I want to do something interesting on the forks on my Lyrebird.

    My wife's bike and #001 are both rattle can jobs. I plan for #002 (the first of the club bikes) to be done with a compressor and gun, which I intend to buy in the next week or two. I bought a vinyl plotter for mask cutting for #001 and all future jobs too, as cutting the masks by hand for my wife's bike was hellish.

    The decision point will be when I need to build a proper spray booth; and whether that is something I can do in my garage at home, or something that needs me to rent a unit.

    I've been sick to death of my packaging gig for far too long now. Of the many business ideas I have had, this is the only one I have been genuinely excited about. Even my wife has shown some excitement (although she does keep barking at me about doing a business plan - and I should, even if it's not much more than a 'fag packet' one) and she *loves* the paint job I did on her bike.

    I paid for my domain name and designed my logo today, so it feels like it's beginning to go somewhere - slowly but surely...

    Fairlight is the suburb I live in, in Sydney. The name came to me almost as soon as I had the idea, and it's stuck.

    This turned out pretty nice. Still needs a final fitting and a few tweaks.

    Latest Fluidity?

    I've always been intrigued about these because the geometry really suits me, but reports of poor tyre clearance on the earlier ones has always stopped me buying - will the new one take a 25 or 28?

    I took a look before my client picked up. I didn't get a chance to check other tires. He had a set of Michelin in 23mm that measured out to 23.5 on the calipers. It looks like a 25 would fit no problem but I think a 28 would be a no go.

    Gattonero, do you ever get to work on clean bikes? (aside from your own, that is)

    The main problem was the whole hub choked with grease. Even right inside the RingDrive mechanism. And wasn't thin grease so won;t come off easy. That would need complete dismantling to the very last bit, to remove that bloody grease.
    Bad, bad idea!
