In this boat so hard.
That thing is a perfect modern steel road bike.

everyone else: I am setting the jig and torch back up in the fall. My joints are not as pretty as my paint jobs, but I am working on it.
thanks i’ll check back in in the fall
I posted this frame when I first got it but it took me a year to start putting it together. It’s a pedimoto that I picked up at the brooklyn bike jumble at 6:00 in the morning for 250.00. The first hurdle was making a quill seatpost as it has no clamp. I had an american classic post on hand so I butchered it with what tools I had and it works a charm. It’s built for a rohloff so I went with a 1 x 8 build to avoid using a front derailleur and so I could use parts I had on hand. The bash guard came from ebay and I forgot to pay attention to the bolt pattern so it looks a little…jank. But whatever. It works. I’m waiting for a 1" cable hanger so I can hook up the front brake. I’ll also install fenders, a longer chain and maybe fatter tires because there’s plenty of room. Oh, and wrap the bars. The bike rides great with weight in the front and it’s my most upright bike which is nice to have, although I certainly didn’t need another bike. It also has dynamo routing but three bikes with dynamo hubs feels like too much.
HY Tooth Fairy. I had one of those.
Tried out the 0.5m chairpole and rode down to the mailbox and around the park yesterday. Better, but still not enough saddle height. Such a bummer, this bike is terribly fun to ride.
details on the quill post?
That seat cluster is a real thing of beauty.
I did this but in a more fucked up way. For some reason I can’t embed it.

weird/rad name for a seatpost
Getting the fit a little bit more right on the Coffee Grinder and getting tires on dirt quite a bit this week. This is basically the road bike I always wanted.
Is that the RDO? Thru axle, rack and fender mount would be ideal.
yup. It has a steel reinforcement place at the mounts so they are not sketchy. It is also lightweight.
Yeah. I haven’t spent much/any time trying to work out how to get fenders on there, but I’m sure it wouldn’t be hard if I took more than 5 minutes to do it.
I still haven’t quite worked out which rack is actually supposed to fit on there, since there isn’t a hole in the front of the fork crown. I think those holes that I thought were rack mounts are actually for water bottles? I would love to find a small rack that would fit on there to carry a little bag on the front, though. If there were something with fixed arms that mounted to those four holes, that would probably be strong enough to carry a little load.
The fork rides well, though. Some people on the internet seem to think it rides too stiff, but I haven’t noticed. I also pretty much never run my tires higher than 55 psi, so maybe that has something to do with it. It also has a ton of clearance, so I might try a bigger tire in the front if I keep riding these eroded fire roads in Marin.
