allan's 29er under way
started allan's frame today, got pretty far, i've got a front triangle done. it's going to be a trail/tour/all rounder kinda bike with a fox shock and a bunch of sweet goodies and full rack mounts and extra bottle mounts. kind of a regular coconino build as of late. sooooo....... just a few shots of stuff i thought was cool today - first, the tubeset pre-build, what i started with this morning just after i scrubbed everything inside and out but before i measured the butting and checked the tubes for bowing. next, a hole shot i made through the downtube with the mill for the headtube cope - straight through! that baby is centered. next, a shot of the hole for the seattube slot - as you can see, i draw the silver down in between the seattube sleeve and the seattube and make sure it's all around the hole where the slot will go, insuring that moisture will not get in between the two layers of metal. it's the little things that count! next, a shot of the headtube copes all tacked up, that's a nice tight fit - the way they should be! more pics when i have some thing to show, steve.
