I accidentaly did something I've said never do, I put a curved tube and a tapered oval downtube so the only tube I had hold by to polish it was the seat tube - darn!
Out in the sun pre-polishing, post de-fluxing.
A nice shot for the curves, I began to think of it as the "Mudslinger" as it's made to use a 14-speed internally geared Rohloff hub, not clog with mud around the tires, and not collect mud on the chain - Rex sent me pics of what looked like a bike but coated with adobe - this should help - I also think I remember that Mountain Goat Cycles had a "mudslinger" model?
Checking out the housing runs, very nice. EP in the background helping out around the shop.
All polished out, most of the braze-ons in action - 27 individual braze-on pieces.
Here is Chris Noren's frame from the get-go, a 26er with a 120mm fork for Elko, Nevada.
Getting the spine straight from the get go, more pics to come ASAP now that I have my computer back from the computer doctor........pinche computers.
And here is the front triangle all tacked up - onwards tomorrow.
Look at the cool 2" tall sculpture I made!
Another weird one.........
D. & John - if you got your bike painted one color in the last 4-5 yrs then John likely did it - Iron Horse Powdercoat, 928-774-7747 Flagstaff, AZ.
Busted up again - yep, hyper extended thumb - ouchypoo, slowing me down a little but still at it.
We were down in the Verde Valley a bunch lately with friends & family.
Nice swimmin' hole.
Cranking it out - a handcycle first, 4.5 hours out in the desert.
I made this!
The Yuman Beings up to visit from the desert.
