great weather for building bikes.
rocking out shawn's bike. gonna braze it together tomorrow! it looks great, and is really straight - it's already beeen on the alignment table three times in my build sequence. first, the front triangle. then, when the rear chainstays are tacked on, then again after the chainstay brace is brazed in. the dropout faces are aligned to each other on the second and third alignments, and a wheel is stuck in the frame to check clearences as well. the frame looks big until you see the 29er wheel in the drops, huh! lookin' good! the snow seems to be slowing down......it looks like we have about a 2 1/2 feet in the yard. arctic! tomorrow, seatstays. let me know if there are steps you want pics of, or if there are questions about the geometry, or tubing choices steve.
