Day 2

Had a couple of whiskeys last night, well we had to congratulate ourselves on not melting any of the expensive bits on our first day. 

Pete our instructor also completed the designs for our bikes. See below.

Classic road bike geometry for Henry
A bit more relaxed geometry for Si’s touring bike
Mitring at the bottom of the seat tube
Then inserted into BB shell, fluxed and brazed
…and finally shot blasted
Si’s BB and Seattube prepped and ready for brazing
Si’s fork crown brazed into steerer, filed back, then faced for the crown race
Si’s fiddly fork ends, pre-braze
Bottle bosses
Chainstays with ‘Road ends’ brazed in place alongside downtube and seattube
Si’s frame starting to come together in the jig
