checking to make sure that all is good, and it is......the braze-ons on the top tube are water bottle bosses for "P-clips" that will hold all the housing together. two cables for the 14-speed internal hub and one for the rear disc brake, all of which will travel together down the left seat stay.
checking out chain ring clearances. the rohlff mandates the use of a larger middle ring, and i wanted Mc D. to be able to use big tires for the Nevada desert, so i shaped the right stay. looks good!
the seatstays before de-fluxing.
all cleaned up...........the brass dots are holes i drilled pre-brazing to tell me that i have achieved good penetration with the brass filler.
voila! through magic the straight stays have bent themselves into pleasing S-bends ready for mitering 1st thing tomorrow.......
