I've discussed my interest in building a few classicly piped bikes with my version of "Japanese" style lug work. To my eye that is crisp and minimal with a very intentional and gestural line to the treatment. Not so simple "simple", if you will.

I recently finished a bike I have called the 典雅 (Tenga) Track that shows this sort of treatment.



It's also reminiscent of the San Ume- the first I did with this specific weight to the reference.

In addition to the track bikes I am very interested in doing something similar in road and rando based platforms.

More photos can be seen in the Showcase and at my web site.
