Complete Handmade Bicycle!
May 28, 2008 §
Took it on it’s first test ride on the W+OD trail! It rode surprisingly well for my first frame. Also took it into DC today and rode around the city without any problems.
Next on the list is to build another one without lugs. Plan on just doing some fillet brazing. Also want to tackle a fork (sorry for the Tange in the picture;).
Thanks to all my friends and family that supported my efforts!
Special thanks to Plum Grove Cyclery for their expert help, Campy frame tools and necessary build out parts. Could not have done it without them.
Special thanks to Rich Adams and Around Town Bicycles in Wilkes Barre PA. The have been very supportive and Rich was always willing to answer my emails.
I plan on doing a more verbose post about the whole experience soon…. stay tuned.
