I've been lax here and need to decide if I have the time to dedicate to keeping a blog or if the web & Flickr sites are sufficient. I do have some fun projects in the works with a Bi Lam project and a Randonneur bike that would be nice to document.

The Bi Laminate project will most likely be a fixed gear with a threaded steerer and a plate crown. I'm working on various patterns for the crown but haven't decided what to use.

The lugs are patterned after a Prugnat I style with a point added on the center of the head tube. All the lugs start as thick chrome moly aircraft tubing that's been turned on the lathe. The tubes are chosen for their inside diameter and must be significantly reduced for the right look.
