  • While you are all out riding and enjoying this wonderful Sunday, I am getting to work at #8. Lots to do!
  • The only downside (upside?) to riding this much is how much food you gotta eat. All the Chicken Katsu Cheezu Curry. Itadakimasu fuckers
  • Trippy
  • What an afternoon for a ride
  • I wish I could get along to this! Get involved Melbournites. More info at
  • @shauncruickshank the main triangle and chainstay brazing is done! just seat stays, brake bosses, pump peg and a few other things left for the frame
  • Not to mention the saddle, exquisite work depicting all the mountains I intend to climb on this bike @busymanbicycles
  • Happy Easter from the Kumo Bunny
  • Teeny tiny ferule that I machined for @shauncruickshank s bike. This is a reinforcement ferule for the entry of the internally routed rear brake light. The edges are all smoothed and rounded to prevent snagging the wire or wearing the housing. On an unrelated note, those brown spots on my hand are needle sharp slivers of steel that have been in my hand for 4 weeks now... That's how I get my recommended dietary iron intake
  • Riding in Canberra autumn is the best (taken on the way to work)
  • And here is is all brazed up. I drilled it through the lug for extra reinforcement. I don't like drilling cable runs through the down tube itself. @shauncruickshank
  • Not the most glorious shot, but your frame is now frame-shaped @shauncruickshank !!
  • Bzzzzzzzzzzz.  @shauncruickshank
  • Stretching some tubulars for a little project that will be hitting the Pavé at this years #melburnroobaix @fyxo
  • So this morning I ride to work battling 35kph headwinds. Then on the way home I get greeted with this serene fucking bullshit. Where is my tailwind what a ripoff
  • Beginning annoying photo dump from today's ride. First 0 degree day for Canberra and an early start
  • We rode up to Corin dam, I stopped to survey all the lands
  • @sean__chua at Corin dam
  • Descent
  • Perfect day for it
  • @shauncruickshank s fork crown. Machined daruma plug with m5 thread for fender mounting. Brake holes plugged and filed flush. Crown race machined. Phew, some may call it excessive, I don't.
  • Mmmm, sharp new taps #toolboner
  • Hill climbing day
  • What a day! Lots of riding, good mates
  • A good morning to ride in to the workshop early
  • Earlier in the week I had complete dude and patron saint of FOA, the eponymous Spirito down from Syd to help him out with a project and hang out a bit. He just shot through some photos and they came out awesome!
  • Durning down an adapter puck to take up the space of the contact plate + insulator to ensure that @shauncruickshank s Schmidt SL dropouts end up at exactly 100mm
  • Supplies
  • @shauncruickshank this is what the little adapter does. Takes up the area that is countersunk for the workings of the dropout. Installed on the right
  • Dry test fit of the internal cable run (without the insulator plate) @shauncruickshank
  • Another machines reinforcement doohickey. This one is for the internal cable run exiting the fork crown @shauncruickshank
  • How's that for integration!
  • The fork parts are now a fork. Definitely the most complex and coolest fork I have built. Next step is brake bosses @shauncruickshank

  • Awesome and icy ride around Beechworth this morning with @callahanbicycles and Adam
  • Two Canberra dudes rode from Canberra to Melbourne for the #melburneroobaix only to have their bikes stolen from the MCG somewhere between 4-7 last night. Titanium Look single speed and BMC single speed. Please keep an eye out and contact me if you see anything
