Captains Ti bike, Forks, and Cuts:

Curtis, aka Captain, came into the shop with a 55 year old picture of himself sitting on a Sears and Roebuck bike.  He said “I want this”.  I was happy to oblige.  The one catch is Curtis is 6’5″, so he needs a big bike.  Curtis selected a titanium frame, a steel fork, and a coaster brake 3 speed hub to top it off.

 

The leaves are changing around here

There’s snow up high

Zoomed

 

The same Mountains from a different trail on July 28th this year.

A view down the valley from the halfway point on the climb

Things change color in the shop too……….

Even “Das Proto” is showing signs of age

I don’t think I need to explain how fast the air escaped out of the tire.

A few patches, a clif bar wrapper, and I’m back on the trail

The trees are rather crispy in this area

I started Captain’s fork this week too

Prepping the crown for the fork blades.

Then I sliced open my finger something fierce on one of those nice little curlicues.  That pretty much ended any metalwork for me this week.  Luckily, I had a bunch of design work and tube ordering to get done.

I also started layout and design for Chris D’s fork to get maximum tire clearance out of a standard reach brake.  I ordered Elliott’s carbon disc fork too.
