the beginning makings of the rear triangle.
fast forward to the stays cut to raw length, slotted & spearpointed and chucked up in the fixture for brazing the dropouts.
a zero cleanup braze straight out of the dunktank. i've been using a different silver alloy and flux on stainless steel parts & i'm very happy with the results so far!
a nice tight fit all around all tacked up.
all bolted down for a thorough alignment check - very nice! this is gonna be a 26" wheeled MTB built around a 100mm travel Magura fork & it will be going to live in Texas.
just the seatstays left before brazing! i think that other then some packing and shipping & receiving that i'm gonna take the day off! i'm tired and my body hurts from some long days in the chair and i want to feel good for tomorrow as it will be the first opportunity for me to go hand cycling in quite some time. more later, thanks for reading & all your collective patience! Steve.
