Are people who solder bike frames together for a living not professional metal workers?

Like I think they were in aerospace or something where generally they aren’t Johnny Tremaining their pieces together

yes in that they are artisans making a living

no in the sense that framebuilders are not held to any professional standards of worksmanship or destructive testing or vehicular safety

the other group of professional metalworkers tend to be grumps about the idea of using brazing for anything structural, like not even on a static sculpture, unless you’re joining dissimilar materials and then they’d still question why it’s under load

Stevey seems to be moving away from his usual flat-bar roadies. I wonder if those wheels make a cool noise like my old trispoke did.

My trispoke never made a noise. Was I just too slow?

If you passed someone or rode past a wall or something it would reflect it back to you, also, we have a lot of wind here so it could be that too. Mine was a very old one. Hed. Sharp edges.
