By coincidence, I just ordered a copy, it should arrive in a few days. I am guessing I already espouse several of his ideas and my bikes reflect it (poor man's Rivendells of sorts).
I guess I too...
I agree, however, on this bike the seat is slid fairly forwards on the rails. If he runs a setback post he may not have enough forward adjustment to place the seat in the current position.
TIG, Like fusion gas welding only with an electric torch. Hope you enjoy it.
Cool. So you disassembled a freewheel and removed its cog along with the internals, then you brazed on a coaster style cog. That is a great way to make a fixed cog when you can't source one. I...

Let us know how you like it.
What size did you get?
That is actually clever way of expressing it, and congratulations on your raise.
Did you need a proportional number of "nature breaks"?
Oh, nevermind, I see what you mean about a dedicated track bike.
Ass rockets it is then.
