Yes, I still am a framebuilder..
With liitle or no blogging I'm sure some of you might assume that I have gone away and hung up the torch. This is definitely not the case, I have just been buried in all sorts of situations, some my own making and some I really didn't ask for. This aside, I have been belching out work with some regularity. This frame is a 'big-tire road' with the addition of S&S couplers. I built a steel for as well as the bike will be in and out of a travel case many times, not a good place for a carbon fork.
Here's the fork with the Pacenti 'Paris-Brest' crown, one of my favorites as it allows for lots of fender and tire room, something required on this type of bike.
Here are some of the last aluminum and scandium frames for the winter back from the painter. He still has about a half a dozen more......I built a lot of frames in Aug-Sept. and they are going to fill up the rack in the next day or so. I think I might get to that 100 frames for the year mark that usually is a little more than I can do. When you don't get a long vacation it is surprising what you can get done. Next year......long vacation !
