So two bikes went out last week after waiting on some parts: Mo’s road bike, built with Columbus Spirit For Lugs tubing, with Richard Sachs lugs, fork crown and BB shell; and Jascha’s single speed disc-brake commuter, complete with stainless steel fenders and sliding dropouts. Let’s look at Mo’s first.

Here are some shots of Mo’s in progress, including the internal cable routing. We use a brass tube to run the housing through, which insures that no water will make it into the top tube.

And here’s Jascha’s burgundy and gunmetal commuter; he’ll be completing the assembly himself, and promises to send photos of the complete bike; I wanted to make sure the fenders fit properly around the tires. He’s using 28c tires right now, but the frame was built to handle up to a 35c.

I also did a dropout replacement for a Rivendell that Harris Cyclery sent down to us. The customer didn’t want a full repaint, so I just painted cream up the stays to cover the affected area:

Coming up: S&S couplers on a Centurion! More paint! Another 29er!
