it's raining. planning this trip to vermont. decided to turn my steamroller into a ten speed for the crazy climbs ill be dealing with. check out the conversion so far
Today I was working on a custom quill seat post for a bridgestone kabuki frame. As with other seat collar-less frames, once the original equipment quill post breaks, and/or is seperated from it's frame, there are only a few options: source another original post, or custom fabrication. The owner of this bike chose the latter, and I was excited to see what I could come with.
I cut apart an old lug I had laying around that I had sweated out of another frame and used it to add some style and detail.

Today I decided that I'm going to build a lightweight rear rack for my steamroller that will accept my Jandd panniers. At the end of the month I want to do a one week tour from Brooklyn to Vermont and back, on a fixed gear, carrying some extra chainrings for the crazy climbs in new england. This week ill also be making a quill-style seatpost for an early 80's Bridgestone Kabuki. This cat has a moustache

What I'm doing with coarse is open ended. I am too indecisive and interests are spread to widely for me to only work on one thing. So i want to do both bicycle and bicycle inspired metal fabrication. Similar processes, different end product. Building custom bicycle frames, and racks. but also work on projects that are outside of making frames. Signs, furniture, sculpture. Whatever is exciting to me at the moment.
