I find the hardest part of blogging is coming up with a nifty title that has not been used yet. When I was a cook I made a new soup every day except Friday which was always N.E. clam chowder. It got really hard after a year of making soup to not repeat (REAL HARD). Blogging seems to feel the same way.
Today I welded Lance's new bike and I think it turned out rather cool. It is a first for me since it is a single speed but does not have sliders. I love the low mount style drop outs and feel they have a great look. They are a touch limited in use since it is hard to use them on smaller MTB's but whenever possible they work great. This bike has an EBB to allow for chain tension.
The bike will get abused and hopefully loved while being ridden. Lance probably figured I would give him an "I told you so" since he ironically broke his other bike last weekend but I am just excited for him to get one of my bikes and I look forward to the feedback.
Here are some snapshots of the welding.
