Always a treat to see the workmanship and hear about the thought that goes into one of your finished products.

Side note, I've heard of a lot of different headsets, but never one from Fizik. What's the story with that?

It's the new FizikShok model - adds up to 10mm of suspension... Makes steering a little sticky though.

Those are seatpost rings from Fizik - I never thought to use them as Dave is there, but next time I need to store a frame, will be stealing the idea!

I've been wondering, Dave, how do you determine the needed curvature (spring?) for the terraplane stays or does it not differ between clients? I'd thought it might vary by weight and height and maybe the level of comfort the rider may want in their ride.

The amount of curve is based on the weight of the rider and the length of the seat stay. I developed a template for the bending so that I can make the bends without and trial and error.

This past week I had the pleasure of spending some time talking with Mr. Patrick Brady of Red Kite Prayer for his "The Pull" podcast. We ended up having a lot to talk about so it's been broken into two parts and part I just went live over the weekend. Part I focuses on my early years and the experiences that informed my current work and outlook on framebuilding. Part two will go live next week.

Dave, the idea of terraplane stays on a hardtail mountain bike was mentioned in another thread. Is this something you ever considered or looked into? I'm guessing a high volume mountain bike tire would lessen the benefits of the stays in that application.
