Parade of steel

The last few weeks have been filled with building steel frames. Here are a few recent ones almost ready to be picked up or shipped out , depending on destination. This one is just going to the east bay so there is a chance the customer might be able to drop by and pick it up personally.
This is a typical Team Euro meant for racing in Nor-Cal.
This pink one is also a bay area customer and a member of the racing team. He is not getting the team color but has decided to go rogue in a way. The tubeset is really light and the frames is well under 4 lbs.


This is the most recent path racer almost ready for assembly. The owner wanted no decals and a flat clearcoat. It actually looks very nice in person-the photos don't really convey the look very well.

This customer is also a bay area resident and will pick this up as a complete bike ready for fixed gear touring....that's right, I'm not kidding-trans continental fixed gear touring to be more precise. He's a mightier man than I.

This frame will not be picked up by the owner as it is bound for Taipei, Taiwan. The black came out glassy smooth. This is a Team euro that will accept fenders and a braze -on front derailleur.
The wishbone seatstay was a request from the customer. I tried to bring in the seat stays a little to make it a little sleeker than the mountain bike version.
The headtube will have a sterling silver head badge instead of the usual decal, a nice upgrade to the overall look.
This rack represents about 5 weeks of work. It's like a rainbow right now.

You better be menacingly fast if you're going to race a pink frame. That black Euro Racer looks super sweet and makes me want a cross bike.

Libya Solutions


1 - United Nations: discussion (part) 'democracy' with 'country' (including 2 points - found: Consensus in the 'country')
+ Protesters' about 2 / 3 - The country people '(anti-government) -> governments' innovation completely. " Approximately 1 / 3 'country people' -> compromise 'response'.

+ The 'leader' country: tenure (and vote 'trend': two times a term.)

2 - (Outside) no intervention (internal):
conflict 'protest' - 4 elements:

+ Authorities 'response' 'rights' (people).

+ Review: 'water quantity' 'against government' (Libya. ..) - how to resolve 'demanding' people.

+ 'Government' is not 'resolutions'' Security Council United Nations' (votes' absolute ') and' leader 'is not' banned movement. "

+ The 'link in the region' 'not opposed' (ie the Arab League, ASEAN, Africa ...).

3 - Apply 'military intervention' (external) - based on:

+ Article 7 - The United Nations Charter

+ A country (outside) no intervention. Number of coordinated water (shown: part - many 'people' World).

4 - Make 'intervention measures' 'outside' 'purpose':

+ Prevent conflict (violence): 'government' and 'people - oppose'.

+ Response: 'government solutions' and (require) 'protesters'.

+ Intervention (external): 'solution' and stop (escalation) 'conflict' and 'faction' (in water).

+ 'Required' 'the government' (is): Negotiation - meet 'the people' -> stop 'intervention' (population: the decision).

5 - The 'intervention' ('outside' or 'water' 'participation'):

+ Response: desire 'majority, World - purpose (' on ') (Section 4).

+ Do not 'responsible' build 'new government' (citizens 'decision').

+ The (problem) 'conflict' Left: the 'UN' 'coordination' in every country and region.



United Nations implement 5 'elements' (above) is:

- Avoid (condition - in Libya), the protesters 'conflict' (assert basic 'human'). 'Government' apply 'the protesters' armed -> create 'force' rebel: repression.

- Avoid: the wrong intervention (external) as 'constraints' (factors '4 '- Section 2) and ('4 Factors' section 4).

- The solution (on the) 'did not happen Civil War' (by 'community' is not 'recognized' and 'isolation'.
Government (will) meet the 'right people' and (will) 'no fear' 'protests'.


Human civilization: to know - the unified 'solution' (above) -> is not 'civil war'.

commentary 1:


Struggle with (the) 'Islamist ideology' and 'terrorist organizations' success in the Middle East - the countries in the region' striving democracy. "


1 - (when) The 'Middle East' achieve 'democracy' is:


+ Benefits and Life (People's) response.


+ People: 'participation' (good) in the 'government' (vote, requires' policy'...).


+ State: from 'people's' ownership and the 'power' properly executed.


Then:

People to participate in nation building (good) is 'to develop' (country) decided by the people themselves ('developing country': the level of 'intellectual', the 'satisfaction'.

The 'benefits' with 'the people'. "


2 - Prevent 'extremist Islamic ideology':


+ 'State' 'power' the right (not focused) and not 'some individuals'' spending power '(Reason: selective progressive and democratic' elections.)


The extremist Islamic ideology 'difficult' propaganda 'established: the State' Taliban style '.. By, 'Islamist ideology' applicable State 'Taliban model, the' accumulation of power '(' rule ') and' forced 'people (women lower benefits, lifestyle' draconian ' ...).


+ If 'sabotage': action 'life' (each 'people').


Government that 'the people' 'participation' at: the 'political apathy', with the 'opposition' policy. Meanwhile, 'the extremist Islamic organizations' (such as the AlQaeda organization'...): break 'the State' which 'people' less 'consensus'. 'Life' 'meet' so bad ... 'people' is not a strong fight.

'Terrorism' is: a / against 'the government' that people 'support' 'vote'; b / terrorism where 'public' as against 'the place to do business' (individual) people (life response: the 'public place' associated lifestyles life does not meet: the 'people' working poor and unemployed, so less' presence'...). Thus, 'rights' to people (a, b) they (will) fight 'keep well'.


+ Social Democracy: 'People' 'progress' (do not get dragged 'extremist Islamic ideology').


Middle Eastern countries like Egypt, Iran, United Arab Emirates, Lebanon, Iraq, Bahrain ... striving democracy (good): prevent 'the extremist Islamic organizations. "




Democracy (good) 'each country' shall not 'affect - the dominant' countries: Russia, U.S., China, Iran and other countries ... 'good contact'.

Solution Libya (next -> Resolution No. 1973 of the Security Council of the United Nations)

(3/23/2011, me and Development Programme UNDP United Nations; Le Thanh Duc 39 - 'Ngu Hai' - Vinh City)

'Coalition' 'Resolution 1973 of the United Nations' conflict and prevent violence against civilians.

Strategy (continued):

1 - 'coalition' - used (only) 'aircraft - the type monitored' supervision Libya.

a / - if 'Gadhafi government troops' use 'weapons' (heavy), such as tanks, artillery ... 'Allied forces' use 'jet' and 'missile': destruction.

b / - If: (repeat) occur 'conflicts - the Civil War' -> catastrophic 'ordinary people':

(When) a 'city' (or where): (continued) fighting took place -> 'coalition forces' use (group' infantry) 'landing': 'measures' to prevent (stop - both sides) - > then taking the (campaign)

Campaign (each place): (can) a day, a few days ... (optional) 'need time' (infantry) are present (there). Finished campaigns: withdrawal - 'instant' (group of soldiers) from Libya (the ground).

c / - 'infantry groups' implementation 'campaign' - to mobilize (from):

+ Warships; or

+ Countries' (near) to 'garrison' (temporary). When 'Mr. Gadhafi' 'resigned acceptance' -> 'troops' (where) retreat - 'instant' (end).

2 - The United Nations shall:

a / - Implementation: 'work' (humanitarian) with people.

b / - Promotion (all - the forces, factions ...) ceasefire. Negotiations 'establishment' 'Libyan authorities' new.

'Libyan government forces' (old) are allowed to 'join', 'son' of 'Mr. Gadhafi' allowed 'to participate' ('government of national reconciliation' new).

Lê Thanh Đức said...

3 - 'Mr. Gadhafi' not 'involved' 'new government', because:

a / - (number of) 'the protesters' - 'object' many (previously).

b / - Army 'Mr. Gadhafi' used 'mercenaries' lot. Country by the military people (consensus 'participation' - protection).

c / - 'Mr. Gadhafi' leaders 'long', not the 'trend' 'human progress', lack of 'democracy'. Countries China, Russia, Venezuela ... (also) did not support - 'leaders' 'holding power' for many years and did not vote.

d / - 'Mr. Gadhafi' no 'response' interests' (most of) the people (protesters: life).
'Mr. Gadhafi' must go and the 'private property' (property right). The 'other assets': the 'people of Libya' - reconstruction using 'country'.


4 - With time, if:

- 'Mr. Gadhafi' not resign.

- 'Conflict - hinder': 'the new government set up' - 'disaster' the people '.

- Preventing 'the protesters' or 'oppose' (method).

Will: use the 'super-talented soldiers' arrest Mr. Gadhafi. Reason 'arrest' 'Mr. Gadhafi': 'International Court of Justice' will (then) to investigate: 'Mr. Gadhafi' attack 'protesters'.

(When) - start 'Mr. Gadhafi', will:

- 'New government' and 'the people': the decision; or

- The countries with the United Nations perspective, 'Mr. Gadhafi' 'yes or no' exile.

5 - 'democracy' - the executable (right), will:

The people of Libya - receptive: 'method' produce 'progress' and 'operating state' ('election'). Unlike 'old regime' - 'mode' poor production; income people - divided by 'oil' (mostly). People required: good labor rights.

Democracy: The 'resource' is fine - not the 'dominant' (to: management and procurement; transparency). At that time, Russia, America, China, France ... not 'influence'.

EU: production methods, management of social progress -> Libya cooperation: transfer of 'technology'. Geographic locations: Libya near Europe -> exchange efficiency.

'Gadhafi personally' threat reduction 'security - peace' in Europe: the European People's struggling (to prevent threats).


UN: discussion (all countries) - 5 points (as above) -> execute 'peace and human progress', 'Libya happy people'.
