Like most weekends, this was another bike-heavy one. I missed ARTCRANK (because I suck), but there were a couple of bike shop shifts, framebuilding, and Paris-Roubiax.
Mostly, I’ll be talking about the framebuilding.
The shop was the shop — pretty busy, but that’s to be expected this time of year. I heard ARTCRANK was seriously crowded. My closet claustrophobe1 breathed a sigh of relief after missing it. Paris-Roubaix saw another epic solo-to-victory by Cancellara, and another fail-to-do-anything of note by Hincapie.
Hit the ground running at Paul’s place. Got the top tube mitered up and welded into place, the dropouts silver-brazed into the chainstays, and the chainstays mitered and tacked onto the BB shell. Pretty productive day, really. In addition to all that fun, I also cleaned-up the brazing work on the lug for the HT/DT joint for the commuter frame.
No idea what we’ll be doing next session. Probably the seatstays on the 29’er and the DT/BB join on the commuter frame.
