here we are riding on the south downs in England:
this is the rear mech and how the chainstays and seatstays meet up. The rear forkmount and dropouts are brown anodised aluminium.
the front forks are laminated from Walnut and Sycamore. I dont use Cedar here as its not strong enough. The forks are bolted each side of the steerer tube. the steerer tube is steel and travels right through the fork top block.
seatstays are finished with walnut detailing in a pointed arrow motif which simply says that ‘this could not have been machine made as it would be impossible for a machine to do but must have been done by hand’. same with the motif at the headstock end.
