Having made and polished a few stainless bits over the years, I realize that is an absolutely sick amount of work to get to that point. And, you can't cheat with machine polishing, save for the final high polish, or else all the beautiful lines get blown.

Outstanding.

New stuff underway

I have had some frame lug project ideas rattling about in my cranium for over 12 years, then at the recent UK Bristol Bespoke show in April I had many conversations with my established frame building peers over many a splendid evening dinner along with few fine real ales :-). Their enthusiasm for these possible projects stimulated me to make some movement, so on return to the world wide head quarters of Llewellyn Custom Bicycles in sunny Queensland I was motivated to get busy and bring these projects to fruition. The 3D CAD was fired up on the Dell and for several plus weeks I worked, studied and experimented on developing a new surface technique for the vision of these 3D models. This new technique was formed which gave more scope and refinement in the model's design but technically detailed and tricky, but pleasing. It is a case of a 100 hours to work out how to do it and then only 8 hours to do the final model. The next step was the 3D prototypes printed by acquaintances to look over and tweak the shore line aesthetics. When the tweaks were done, it was press the green go button for the tool maker to create the wax shooting moulds for the investment casting process at the foundry. These new tools are being made at this time and in some weeks time the first samples will arrive.
Stay tuned for new Crescendo and Cadenzia socket seat stay lugs to fit Columbus tubes later this year.
Next is new sweet looking BB shells and fork crowns with a soft flow to them and easy to use, however I have much on my plate outside of bikes so I have no idea when.
