Starting tomorrow, I’m on a 3 week binge. I’ve been looking forward to this time for a while now, with lots of time set aside and, finally, a fully functional shop. Well, first up we need to put some insulation up… and a heater… then a couple 2000lb pieces of machinery will come in with a Bobcat. We’re under 14″ of snow right now, though it’s melting a bit in the middle of the day. Can’t wait to cozy up the shop & get to work!
Once all that’s out of the way, the list starts with a superlight 26″ frame (Hydra) for Lynda, a road bike (we need a name!) for Brian, and a handful of Fifty-Five singlespeeds for various customers. Of course I’ll sneak in a ride here & there… strictly for testing purposes of course.
Other developments: We also have a redesign in the works for the Song’s flex plate, which will have a bit more tire clearance & look prettier. This is a pic of current plate, for reference.
The most exciting development will be the destructive test equipment Phil & I have been working on, which is basically a high-tech torture table. Something anyone who’s ever been a kid can appreciate. 😉 More on this later…
