Bent and mitered the rear triangle, and it is all ready to be welded up. It doesn't look like much, but it took most of the day. With 16 3/4 inch chainstays, the bend needs to be just right to clear the 2.2" 29er tire and triple chainring. I'll get back on it Monday. More pictures then.

Quick post with pics. I was able to miter up the front triangle for Ron S's 29er hardtail. Things went smooth, just need to wipe everything down, tack it in the jig and weld it up. Hoping to have the rear started by lunch tomorrow. I'll post more pics later.

Sorry for the lack of posts, things have been busy and production slow. I had high hopes for the week, but a sick kid had other plans. Looks like a trip to the doctor in the AM.
First picture is of the rails to trails TI 29er hardtail. I know you have seen this bike before, but I had a request for a picture from the side. It still needs the Thompson seat post.
Second picture, I'm checking the radius on the seat tube to make sure the gap between the tire and the tube is consistant.
Third picture shows the tube in the frame jig. This frame will have an effective seat tube angle of 73 degrees.
In the paint booth: Jim's Fat frame and fork, and Jake's Willits fork.
On another note, I just found the spam folder on my e-mail, so if I have not responded to your mail, try again and I will respond.
