Missed my grail bike :(
Woah. That's going to be a rolling piece of art. Who did the work?
So many lulz.
Can't wait to see the build thread :D
Nice! No email for me, didn't get picked. Hopefully I will for the second batch!
Welcome! Can't help you with any info, but you should search around on the site for information on Oxalic Acid (OA) to help you tackle that rust.
Thanks, Will! :D
Goes hand in hand with n+1 as well. We bike lovers are doomed to forever ride broke.
I'm in month two of my new job as a bike mechanic. I know exactly how you are feeling! I really enjoy the fact that I am learning how to build wheels and do some of the more obscure maintenence...
Your father has good taste, it seems!
That is precisely the reason I am making the switch over to an (almost) full leather fleet. :D
What saddle is this, Jeff?
That Altus RD sticks out like a sore thumb ahahaha. :roflmao2:
Gotta love those classic Pug' lugs though.
Koichi Yamaguchi is definitely up there as one of my favorite builders. He asymmetric track frame is a masterpiece!
I'd love to enroll in his frame building class.
Very envious, OP! Enjoy it!
It's been a great learning opportunity so far, and it has only been a month! All the people are work with are pretty class acts as well, it's a fun environment. I am becoming a way more proficient...
Has anybody seen this done before? I am a headset/paint job away from completeing a new build out of parts on hand.
I have some Deda Piega Anatomic bars:
Why are people so angry? Life is perception.
Got a new job about a month ago. The place is kind of a mess but I'll get it all organized and cleaned again when there is some downtime. I've seen some nice vintage stuff come in in the first few...
Definitely needs a longer stem.
I would ride the snot out of this bike, even if there are only five left :p
This sounds like it may have been the most awesome bike ever produced, ahaha.
How would you feel about a white perforated Rolls saddle for this?
It would match the microtex nicely.
Your builds never cease to amaze, Sofia.
I'd love to ride a build as unique as this. Top notch.
I signed up too, we are giving eachother more competition.
Mods, delete the thread! ;)
This is one of my favorite bikes ever. The seatstay finishing is perfect.
Wonderful build, Velognome!
So true, there has been a lot of junk threads lately.
Glad I didn't miss this one.
