Here in this picture I am doing the rare side job, not because I am never asked to do them, but because I rarely agree to do them.
This, however, is an amazing project, a exact as possible replica of one of the first Grand Canyon boats, the Neville. Check out Brad Dimock's work at www.fretwaterlines.blogspot.com
A sound choice, as this bike will be running V-brakes.
Below, all tacked. I spoke with Don Ferris who made my new Anvil fixture, and he told be to go right ahead and braze the bike at this point, a big departure from how I have always built - it has not been removed at all from the jig at this point - allot of trust here.........
It came out PERFECT. This fixture saved me a whole bunch of time, a whole bunch.
I now have a brace on the other hand as well for the same thing - hyper extended thumbs.
I have to nurse these things, they are the only ones I have & my lively hood depends on them - sorry for any delays, folks, but that's how it is.
Three 650B MTB's, one 26" and one 700c commuter.
All this likely goes back to the Sinaguans, who left ~ 900 - 1000 yrs ago.
Here, Matt is riding among the ruins at Wuputki, AZ.
Way to go!
My next blog post is going to have some VERY, VERY important info on the future on Coconino Cycles on our/my 10th anniversary of bicycle fabrication - stay tuned, please.
Thanks you for everyone & all your collective patience - Gracias!
