Working away...

A quick post for the evening.  Working on Ti and steel bars today and Friday, got most of them prepped and will be welding Friday morning.  Hope to get the majority of them finished and out in the afternoon, we'll see how productive I can be.  Christi has all the boxes labeled and ready for shipping...just waiting on me, as usual ;)

I also knocked out a ti post for Ted, a local racer guy who's great height has made it difficult to find both a frame and a seatpost long enough for proper positioning.  This guy is 460mm long using 27.2  x  .042" walled 3/2.5 tubing, allowing it to be stiff enough for the length and rigors of racing without deforming long term.  I also had to machine a custom shim to fit in his carbon frame, insuring there is sufficient depth and surface contact for the extra leverage forces.  Hope it brings you lots of comfort Ted :)
