For Gordy (and Rody)

I know it has been a while since I've posted on the blog, and Rody gives me crap about it every other day.  From his text "You're a sucky blogger".  On to Gordy's frame.  I have more man hours in to this frame than any other that I have built.  Some of it to custom requests by Gordy but mostly time building more fixture to make sure everything is dead nuts.  This is a TI 29er, with a 2x10 drive train, 16.75" chainstays, 44MM ID headtube which will have a King headset for the fox tapered steerer, and a direct mount front der.  This all adds up to tight clearances, which means double and triple checking everything.  To finish this frame, I need to polish the down tube, some of the top tube, and seat stay bridge, then lay down decals and glass bead blast, and then remove decals to reveal chrome like lettering.  It should give the industrial look that Gordy was looking to get.  I will be back at it Friday, for a Saturday morning delivery.  I promise to post pics of the completed bike.

Jay's Road bike

I didn't get a chance to snap a photo of Jay's frame before it went out, so Jay was nice enough to send me pictures of it built up.  It looks sweet.

Jay's Road Frame

Spent the afternoon machining an IS head tube for Jay's Road frame and managed to miter a couple of tubes. Jay wanted to see picture of the fabrication along the way, so I will do my best. I need to go to my other job in the a.m., so I am not sure how productive Wednesday will be.

This is officially the first Touring frame with a Hubcap name on it.
I know it will see a TON of miles.

Howard P's Steel randonneuring frame

More progress from the basement: This thing is turning out to be a sweet beast. Columbus steel- S-bent the chainstays and left the seatstays straight, 3 bottle cages, racks, fenders, lugged straight-blade fork, room for BIG tires... it is going to be ready for the long haul. It should be ready for the paint booth very soon.

Back At It

Some shots of the latest fabrications including Jeff A's Ti coupler road frame is ready for paint, Michelle S's super orange Steel MTB, and Jess K's fresh paint with lots of keystones. Feels good to be back in the swing of things.

John Y's paint

Needs a wet sand and then final clear to bury the decals.
