    Looks nice! I'd like to see closeups of head tube junction, dropouts etc... Also details on frame material, frame weight etc.

    Here are some pics of the ht junction @ tack, weldup and after h/t, and a closeup of the d/o welds. Its all 6061, and it weighs 3 lbs. with paint.
    Thanks,
    RTW.

    Sick bike there. I love the workmanship, and the colourway is pretty damn nice too. Must be a real treat to ride!

    No need to purge aluminum.
    I do purge with argon when welding steels though.

    Hey Rick- you made any more of these yet? Curious because I'm going to be looking for a new HT really soon!
