some build pics of Shawn's bike.

Getting there on this one. Here, it's all bolted down for the first alignment check since the seat tube sub-assembly was checked for spot-on straightness.

Only seat stays, braces, disc brake mount, brazing, around ten hours of polishing & braze-ons left........

Rear drop outs parallel to each other.

the center of the rear hub is perfectly on center with the rest of the frame.

a 2.35" Panaracer Rampage fits all the way forward in the drops with good clearance.

All dummied up with a BB to make sure I order the correct spindle length Phil Wood . It came out to be a swank 116mm - nice. Here it actually fits with a 111.5mm, but tightened down it will rub the chainstay.

And finally, the seatstays all fab'ed up - i'll get those on tomorrow & hopefully get the whole shebang all brazed. - Garro.

Steve builds a mighty fine ride. I have a 1.5 year old 650 one speed that rides even sexier than it looks. Everyone needs to experience 650Bliss.
