Wayne's LLewellyn Lucentezza

Wayne's Llewellyn Lucentezza frame set is under way. I feel an off the shelf handle bar stem does not compliment a nice bespoke frame set. I made fillet brazed stems for many years but I felt a lugged stem for lugged bikes was required for my production. In 2004 I set about on my first casting project. I made fabricated sample lugs and did 2D CAD drawings, tools were commissioned and the investment cast stainless steel stem lugs were born. They have real estate to the shorelines for a builder to simplify or elaborate upon. Since 2004 I have made many lugged stems to compliment Llewellyn frame sets. This stem lug set is destined for Wayne's Lucenteza frame set. If all goes well it will be at Bespoked 2017 in April (Bristol UK) before I ship to Wayne in California.

The stem tube via Columbus

For 12 years Columbus have supplied me 0.80mm wall Nivrocrom tube for making the Llewellyn lugged handle bar stems. This long and fruitful relationship with Columbus continues. This pic is of the first stage of mitering Wayne's stem tube that will be used with the cut lugs.

The tale of Wayne's Cadenzia frame set

The Cadenzia lug set emanated from a discussion I had during a visit to Dario Pegoretti's workshops in Caldonazzo in 2009. The name comes from a South Australian wine that I like. This lug set fits XL or DOO size tubes . ("UOS" is a more recent marketed name for the same tube size) For Wayne's frame set I will use for the first time the final version of the new socket seat stay seat lug, which has larger flowing fillets to the surfaces for aesthetic desires.

Dazza, your work is mesmerizing as usual. Just finished looking through the set for the DI2 you posted as well. Just amazing work and detail.

I have to say it again, it is SOOOO good to have you back and posting. Have missed your work, your posts, wallace & grommet and it all.

On the lugs, you said you do things a tad different each time. How do you decide?

Thankyou. The process for me is a sort of nudging into a flavour over the years. It is free hand, I just tweak as I do, nothing too planned, just the "organic" way.

Whizzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz is the down under technical term for die grinder operation



encore the whizzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz





Whrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr is the down under technical term for drilling



Before and after shots of the surgery




Some years ago when I started this style of lug cutting a customer made the comment they have as many curves as Nigella Lawson. After that I used the term, "the Nigella treatment"
referring to her cooking of course.
