Radian Cycles balance bike

Thought you all might get a kick out of this. I've literally filled buckets with fillet brazed practice joints but had yet to make a frame. My son just turned 2 so I figured why not make a fillet brazed balance bike? Still waiting on the frame to get back from paint. I'm looking forward to getting it all built up. Full album here.

Thanks for the kind words! These sure aren't custom Phil wheels but I couldn't help myself, had to upgrade the little guy's hubs.

In my defense I was never going to use those old Campy hubs again, or get around to selling them. But you are absolutely right, totally gratuitous!

My daughter is almost two and will be getting a balance bike for Christmas. I better not let her see this, I'll get the evil eye from her on a Strider.
