First picture is Ron's front triangle loaded up in the frame jig. The second picture it is all welded up and waiting for the rear. Planning on putting in some more hours tomorrow, so next post should have the stays installed. Hub
My love for bicycles started in the BMX hay day when Powerlite, JMC, Torker, and P.K. Ripper ruled the track. At the age of 16 I land my first summer job wrenching at Eddie's Bicycles,(formerly John's Derailleurs). In 1987 I built my first frame, a Cannondale/ Mountain Goat inspired 24-26 fillet brazed steel frame. !990 I worked as a frame builder in Central PA for a small frame builder as I went to school for Manufacturing Engineering Technology BS degree. Upon graduating, I was promoted to production engineer, where I continued to build frames until 1999. From 1999 to present I have instructed at the college level in manufacturing. Spring of 2009 I took the plunge and started Hubcap Cycles. Although the company is new, I have several hundred frames under my belt. I feel my frames speak for themselves.
