progress on brian's bike, december?

front triangle all tacked up - clean!
after much agonising and drafting i have chosen the dedacciai zerotre round/oval/round chainstays over the nova s-bends. man, clearances on this bike run tight having to fit in the disc, the tire and the campy chainrings.........

some damn clean brazing on the dropouts. zero clean up!
130mm spacing phil wood disc hubs - mmmmm..........
went out a few days ago with denise, troy and mckenna. hard to tell it's december! it was 57*, short sleeve weather for us mountain folk. of course, this morning we woke up to a light dusting of snow, 30+ MPH winds, and a high around freezing.......still, might try to go for a ride up here tomorrow.
denise said that my arms were starting to look like logs...
here's wee little mckenna! i think she's about four months old.
the starkness of the lack of foliage and the shadows from the low winter sun really looked cool.
an off the map trail......

Cool stuff Steve. Not having been in the western mtns in a while, I bet the smell was great. I miss that big time.

Looks awesome Steve. And those hubs look good enough to eat! (-;
