Just a quick post to say that I’m still here, and still working (albeit a bit slower after the aerial maneuvers). Progress on K’s rando bike is moving along quite well. Sorry for the gaps in coverage, here are a few shots to help make up time: At some point I managed to build the fork, stem and braze up the frame.

If you are in need, let me know and I can sneak something in. Process shot of a fresh fillet goodness straight from the dunk tank: Alog with a general glut of flickr photos I also loaded a quick photo-log of internal cable routing. Pretty slick.

Literally. Tubes are in, parts are on order, and tubes are starting to be prepped and mitered. This years first bike will be fully integrated with frame, fork, rack, stem et all. I’ll be working out a few ideas on this one- stay tuned!
