    My new custom steel SS 29er, nearing completion

    I just snapped these pics today as the frame was being pulled out of the sand blaster. I can't wait for it to be completed.
    Some stats: TT Ox platinum, split shell ebb, hand bent bi-oval down tube to increase strenght (plus it looks cool). Hugh is known as one of the best frame builders in Canada. Also a shot of my F29 terralogic 100.

    Yeah, shame they are going to get painted. I will get one of his ti bikes one day.

    I was so giddy when I stopped by the shop, I hardly took any pics. The builder took some while he was welding it, when he sends them over I will post them up.

    Looks as though the bb insert is sitting between a shell that has lips on it (at least on the lower section). Am I correct?
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    They have 29ers in the fictional land of Canadia? Quick, tell me the vice persondent.

    If I knew anything about frame building, I'd be totally stoked about those beads. It looks good, but not as good as it will when you start slapping the swank bits and pieces on that sled.

    Because waaaay to many people think 'ti' is an appropriate nickname for titanium, I am voting for shortening steel to "ste." It will remain real.

    it just looks that way. The BB insert you see is a dummy only used during the sand blasting process. The actual insert is steel and will slid in and out, no lips.
