Maiden Voyage

This post is a bit later than reality, but the 1st frame is riding well, seen here on last week’s Singletrack Mtn ride. It’s definitely pulling to the right a bit so I didn’t weld it perfectly straight but hey, what do you expect for a 1st frame.  It was made with Chinese double-butted .9/.6/.9 tubing bought from Nova cycles (it’s a cheap, medium weight road tubeset) but it still is pretty light and responsive compared to some other cross bikes i’ve ridden.  The Paul’s SS dropouts are the highlight of the frame though, they’re just perfect.
