These will be a bicycle – a very heavy bicycle


I picked up some DOM tubing to make another bicycle. It’s going to be more of a cruiser than the last one.


Here’s the first tube being bent for the frame. This is a Pro-Tools 105 bender that I picked up last year. I’ve got a 1″, 1.5″ and 2″ die. This is the 1″ die as most of the tubing for the frame will be that size.


And here’s the first bent tube being notched in my Baileigh TN-250 tube notcher. This tool not only increased my notching accuracy, it takes about 1/1oth the time of hand grinding.
