Big Ape said:Hey Tom.........is this your first rodeo?? I think not! Everything about this build is sweet. I would personally add some curve to the new rear extension supports, but that is just my preference. Can't wait to see the finished bike!
Curving the braces was something I never even considered. Your comments made me curious and had to try it out in Photoshop. Tried both convex and concave. Not sure which I like best now. Any thoughts?deven_science said:Great build you've got unfolding! I would agree with Big Ape that curves in the braces might flow better, but either way, good job, man.
ChimeraCycle said:Great build thread. Love the putty work. Looks very schwinny that way. The rear drop out work & extension is boss.
I'm pretty happy with the way that the smoothing is working out. The factory welds were kinda wormy looking. As for my welds, they're not quite ready to be left as is and highlighted. Had to do something!Bike Bum said:Smoothing out the welds takes a lot of time but the finished results are amazing.
I guess I was confused, because I like concave better. Right? Or am I still confused? I liked the photoshop pic of the stays with the curve towards the ground.
