With the exception of the PF-30 BB shell , this is a lugged frame from me-the first in a few years. I spent some serious time thinning the lugs and trying to get an attractive profile on this oversize lugset. In the past I have gone into projects like this with great energy only to be completely burnt out at the end and wind up dissatisfied-not so with this one. I bought new files and really took the time to do it right and had an enjoyable time building this frame. Don't get me wrong, it was a lot of work and concentration but I really enjoyed it.
The lugs are from Nova, the tubing is True Temper and the headbadge is sterling silver from Jen Green.
The carbon fork is and enve-hard to tell with the paint. The customer specified King BB and Headset in colors to compliment the paint. I think it worked out pretty well. The paintwork was done by Allan Neymark here in Santa Cruz. This paint job was a lot of work and took longer than building the frame !
The dropouts are Henry James-I don't ofetn use these but I felt that they would really work well on a frame like this.
The scalloped stay ends are a nod to the style I used on many of my early lugged frames.
These are positively the fanciest bottle bosses that money can buy-its a shame that they will be covered by a bottle and cage.
