Merry Christmas

To anyone following this blog I would like to wish you all a Very Happy Christmas.

 The last month has flown by, starting with the fantastic evening at Meet the Maker as part of the Australian Custom Bicycle Show. I got to catch up with Ewin Gellie and meet both Darrel McCulloch from Llewlyn and Keith Marshall from Kumo. Got to hear both Darrel and Daren Baum speak and had a great evening. Back in the workshop Tim has finaly decided what to do about his repaint and the bike came back to have a front deraileur mount brazed on before that. There is box of new bits to put on when it returns so look out for photos soon.Also this steel Seven MTB http://www.sevencycles.com/came in with a request to make it suitable for disk brakes and to build a rigid fork for it. After a couple of emails to Karl at Seven, who couldnt have been more helpful I believe I have arived at the right length to make it. Given there are no lugs on the frame I plan to build a segmented fork to match
