I do sincerely appreciate the part, however, since it was one thing I didn't have to make from scratch, like so many other little doodads.

Another of this ridiculous project's main supporters voiced some concern over the durability of the seatpost as well. While I do sincerely hope that nothing fails while riding it, a failure does indicate a data point and is instructive. We don't know the limits of something until we surpass them. At that point we can re-evaluate and either change parts or do something different, incorporate design changes, etc.
The other option MH and I were talking about is cutting off a donor NR seatpost about two inches from the junction of the cradle solid section, down the tubing. Then get a sturdy BMX alloy post. Fit the 2 inches of tubing onto the BMX post and epoxy. You could even fashion a design around the joint...bondo the juncture and paint red or something.

Getting the Huffentenago airborne to a height that would enable a graceful(?), stylish cartwheel definitely requires the lifting power of a SpaceX booster rocket. Even though it is a Huffy, the integrity of the attached components would need assistance from some form of onboard self destruct (yes, we are talking about something that would make a loud noise with flame and smoke!) device to fully liberate them into aesthetically pleasing separate trajectories to avoid falling and landing in a disgusting heap.

That seems like a succinct RFP for the next absurd project for the C&V board. Who will be courageous enough to make it happen?

Well guys, I took a two-day getaway with the family in a rare bout of 'not-work-on-the-Huffy-itis', which was much needed...




The Great Sand Dunes near Alamosa, CO


It was sure nice to remember that I had a family and ignoring the Huffy for a couple days helped bring it down to earth - she's been feeling a little high and mighty with all those fancy parts getting strapped on.

I said that I'd get the bike ridable by the weekend, and well...I have the day off tomorrow, so I'm still counting it as the weekend haha.

There are just a couple things left at this point, at least to get the bike riding:

1. Clean up the paint on the seatpost parts and install
2. That darned RD cable stop

So, before we left on the trip, I did actually make some decent progress on this little part...











Our chainstay is .662, which is waaaaaaaaaaaay bigger than a normal bike chainstay, so that little RD cable stop I was going to use? Yeah, not happening. But I did have this aluminum stock that's 5/16ths thick, and should do nicely. Luckily, I had this drill bit that measured .651, so we are really close on the size.

Unfortunately, I didn't have the right size of drill bit (.233) for the cable ferrule, but I had one that was a little smaller (basically 1/4"), and my thinking was that I'll just open it up a bit with a dremel bit, but things got messy! That is a really small hole to try to control dimensions, and I ended up having to start over in a different corner of the barstock to do another hole. This time around, I just went slightly larger. I figure it might be ever so slightly loose, but it will still hold tight up against the inside and work. I really wish I had the right size, and hindsight being 20/20, I would have tried to find a drill bit that was the exact size of just the housing and maybe even skip the ferrule. Good news is that I can possibly add an insert in the future to tighten it up if need be - no way am I making another one!


















Because the stock is thin enough that the allen head clearance is biting away at the sides, I'm probably just going to feather those away, as long as I don't end up with any sharp corners for stress risers. It will probably take a couple more hours to finesse and fine tune it, and the sides are a little bit on the 'uncomfortably thin' side, especially with .011 left to open up, but we'll see what we can do. If it fails, I have enough stock to make more, I just don't to keep remaking stuff all over the place.

Tomorrow is the day.

This was basically the same idea I had a bit earlier on, for allowing use of a Campy seatpost. However, there are a few considerations or sticky points:

1. The seat tube diameter is 1", or 25.4mm. Campy did make a 25mm, and this would be the preferred size, to give the right illusion that the seatpost is either the same size or slightly smaller than the seat tube. If the seatpost was larger, then it would not look proportional

2. The internal diameter matters - if you go with a 25mm seatpost, and let's say the walls are 3mm thick (guesstimate), then the ID of the seatpost would be 19mm. Why this matters as it determines the fit of the 'top' of the posts (the Campy part) to the bottom donor part. There would likely not be enough material left after turning down a 7/8 seatpost (22.2mm) to 19mm to be strong enough, because if that seatpost is 3mm thick in the walls, then turning it down to the 19mm to fit the Campy bit on top of it would leave it with about a 1.5mm thick wall where the top Campy part attached.

The ideal solution would be a custom turned post, about 5" long, made from solid round barstock, turned down to 7/8", hollowed out with 2.5-3mm sidewalls, but leaving the top completely solid to turn down to the size of the ID of the Campy post you are using (roughly 19mm), then bond the two together.

3. The other factor is sizing. If you stay with a seatpost clamp to tighten the seatpost, you can hide the joint and get away with the illusion, but it also means you have to have your fit completely dialed, so that the seam or bond between the two parts is right where the seat tube ends, and where it would be hidden by the seatpost clamp. While that can eventually be figured out, it would have been very hard to do this without first having a different setup, using the saddle you want to use. I suppose you could do this with the original steel seatpost and the new/preferred saddle, and then just take really good measurements...

I like the idea, but it will absolutely be heavier than the seatpost I'm using now. So! If the seatpost I'm using now ends up failing or loosening up or whatnot, this idea above is the next best thing we got, but we will have to have someone custom make a bottom post for us. I wish I had a lathe and some stock and could just whip up something, but I'm not that talented hah!

In the spirit of the Huffy being a "gas pipe" frame, could you use pipe threads for the joint in the seat post? 1/2" NPT is about 7/8" diameter. I'm not saying you need to use actual gas pipe for the post, unless that is what you want.

I'm sure you have far more experience in metalworking than I do - but I'll raise the issue anyway.

Aluminum cracks easily when bent. I hope I'm wrong, but I'm not sure you're going to be able to flex that clamp enough to get it over the chainstay and then flex it back without one or both sides bending, then possibly cracking when bent back.

If that turns out to be a problem, something along these lines might work as a backup design:




A bolt would then hold all three parts together and provide the clamping force. One end of the clamp could be threaded, or a through-bolt and locknut could be used.

Plug would need to be approx the diameter of the chainstay. Cut widths would likely need to be narrow to avoid bending the alloy much (or maybe a very thin washer used on one or both cuts if wider cuts are required). Sides might need to be "beefed up" a bit at the clamp end.

Again: hope I'm wrong and this ends up being just a "what-if" drill. But I've found that it's always best to have backup options.

Excellent point - however, I should be able to slip it onto the chainstay via first sliding onto the super thin dropout and then over onto the rounded part of the chainstay. I might have to open up that slot just a tiny bit more to overcome the pinched part, but we'll find out soon!

Maybe not, but probably not enough people are aware of the impending assault on their sense of cycling decorum, status and common decency. If alerted to the now inevitable travesty that is about to descend (how low can a Huffy go?) on their serene, blissful C&V existence there could be an uprising on this thread if not across the entire spectrum of cycling social media.

Wow. What a day! What an incredible day!

The Le Grande has been built!

I wasn't able to go on a test ride since it was raining out earlier, but I just finished up about an hour ago. Except toe clips and a water bottle holder (and a couple more surprises to come), we are 100% built up and ready to rock. The bike feels amazing, and is absolutely under 25lbs, maybe even under 24. I used to have a Fuji S10-S, and that bike was an even 26lbs all day long, and the Huffente is noticeably lighter. I'm completely chuffed. It was a long day, but there were so many wins I don't know where to start. The RD cable stop worked out perfectly (and I'm so glad for that too, after investing 8+ hours into it).

There are going to be LOTS of update this evening, and LOTS of pictures. I can't wait to show you guys. Also, I can't thank you enough for all your support for this ridiculous project. I wasn't sure if we were actually going to arrive here, but here we are, and still days away from the weekend rides! That will give me some time to sort out the toe clips and bottle cage. This really was a labor of love, and not just for me, but for many of you too. There was blood, sweat, and I dunno about tears (except crying myself to sleep) but definitely some 'swears'

I'm so excited.

Hanging out with the kids now but when they go to be, the crazy updates will start, and I have a LOT of them!
