Sweetpea Progress

Had a lovely appointment this afternoon with the Best Framebuilder in the World. Approximately 5 more weeks to go. There is a frame and fork. The final component list is set. Paint colors mostly selected.

Best framebuilder in the world...

The frame among the peas

Lots of shiny silver components (mostly Velo Orange). Cinelli Gel Cork tape, natural color. Nitto seatpost (oooooooohhhhh). SonDelux front hub. (oooooooooooooohhhhhhhhh). Velocity Aerohead rims.

Bits for Sweetpea

The frame will be getting some more braze-ons, and the rack needs to be fabricated. Then off to paint and build.

No, I'm not excited. NOT :-)

Ooooh! Oooooh!
When it's done, I suggest a Deb Ball. We'll all bring our favorite bikes and celebrate with a picnic. Yes?
