just got back from having a rust particle removed from my iris - no fun! it's lost me a few day's productivity, but i should still be able to deliver the goods on time - Kyle & Shayne, i'll be back at it tomorrow & i'll get your bikes done for your road trip out here. it may be tight, but i'm gonna hit it hard tomorrow & get it going on - the frame is fully brazed & "just" needs polishing and braze-ons and paint........ i was wearing full eye protection when it happened but somehow the metal particle got in there anyway - it was better then when i had my eyelid lanced in 03' to remove the flux shard! framebuilding = a hard dangerous job - the glamour wears off fast & it's not for everybody. anyhoo, here's a pic of better times, a fat 17"er i got at Luna Lake last week. pics of Shayne's frame tomorrow night, Steve.
