The TIG welded gravel monster with 3D printed stainless chainstay yoke and dropout passed the international standard fatigue test last week. Now time for the really fun bit, real world testing! Cheers to @bastioncycles for the pneumatics which together with the test bench I’ve built allows this to be done in-house.
The Temple of TRUTH:: Super psyched to welcome this Loco-Machine alignment table to the party. Now all those surface based measuring and inspection tools I’ve been collecting have somewhere to work properly. I fitted it up with a sweet post mounted tool carriage and cork lined cover. Last two flicks are of the drop-out post I put together- precision ground 10mm post with shaft collars. This guy checks axial alignment and spacing. Psyched! #truth#framebuilding#alignmentmatters#bike
I'm designing a paint scheme for my own bike (yes, the cobbler's kids finally get some shoes) and I wanted to include a subtle reference to the Mapei cycling team (probably the greatest team ever). I've always liked the color cubes from that paint scheme but they felt a little over the top for my personal ride so these will be just a silver outline against white and black. Pretty cool but dang was it tough to figure out. #framebuilding#bicycle#handmade#craftsmanship
Some coding is going on today.. This thing spits all the numbers I need to build a frame on a nice little plan. Tons of trigonometry, vectors in R2 and a little help from Mr. Pythagoras. #revlrevlcycles#framebuilding#selfmade#vba
