Some photos of Joe’s “mountain cross” (aka. all-rounder) bike in progress. Just have the seatstays left to do, then braze the dropouts, and the braze-ons, and then…so close but so far!
Crank and chainring check, CHECK!
something new for water drainage on a cross bike. And I saved at least 3 grams.
Offset mitered chainstays (4mm to avoid seat tube)
Wheel check, again. Kinda too late at this point if it didn’t fit.
headtube/top tube welds. It’s a 7/4/7 top tube to a 44mm (1.25mm wall) head tube.
I clean the tubes a lot. 31.8 x 8/5/8 OX Plat downtube. Not sure why there’s no HAZ though right here, it’s weird.
PLENTY of room for this Clement MSO Xplor 40. I made the space to take 45’s, I just don’t have any to try.
