After being sidetracked many times, the SchnelleTour is finally built up. It really needs to be shot with better lighting or in daylight to show off its luster. The ride is quite smooth, and swift, just as the name implies (if you know German).

just putting some more fixin’s on it… Needs cleaning, flux removal, etc… Then I’ll mock it up with the parts and build the custom racks. Front rack will be a wide, shallow basket, asym & headlight of course. Rear rack will b’long…. BE LONG…. sorry for the busy background, I’ll be working on a solid color background.
max is back and ready to beta test the bamboo bike. since last sighting, carbon fiber was added to the bamboo/steel junctions. I added some brake bosses in the rear only, for fishtailing. All parts on this bike, are or were found, donated, borrowed (with permission), or borrowed (without permission). Oh, and yes, that is a bamboo handlebar. max’ll test ride this.
finished the basic build on this frame also. taking a breather because I’ve been at it for a while here and also because the studio is frikkin cold lately. dangit. I think this is an older photo, but new ones will be posted after I install brake bosses, rack mounts, fender mounts, cable stops and other frame fixin’s. This frame will also get custom fitted racks, front’n'rear, suited for both local and long distance.
