Back when I started framebuilding, blogs were a little too new for my tastes. Instead of writing a blog, I just wrote a web site, using notepad to write html. It's at http://www.littlefishbicycles.com/. So now blogging tools seem to be a whole lot more advanced, making the effort involved with writing html, formatting images, and publishing seem rather silly.
Thus, I thought I'd try blogging instead, as a simpler way of sharing thoughts and ideas.
So since my original webpage was written, I've moved house and gotten back into framebuilding. I'm mostly done building a road race bike for Kristyn (pictured above), and have a few more frames in various stages of contemplation:
- A road race frame for myself, using Columbus Genius oversize tubing, and either Henry James or Llewellyn lugs.
- A track bike for Kristyn, probably based around 650C wheels, to better accommodate her shorter stature and allow for a decent drop from saddle to bars.
- A track bike for myself.
- A road racing bike for a friend, who's a little over 6' tall. This will probably be built using Columbus Life OOS tubes, using either fillet brazing or Llewellyn lugs.
Anyway, that's the plan. I'm still working in steel, and still doing classic lugged frames. I'll do separate posts for each of the frames, as the designs progress.
