Can you explain what is “filleted lugs?!” This looks like a regular, but nicely thinned, lug:

If you look closely at the very top and bottom of the lug you can see some bronze/brass coloring. Chris often adds a fillet to lugs to help smooth out the radius of the lug, giving them a very natural contour from lug to tube. Here's another example of Chris' work where you can see the fillet more clearly.

Couldn't have explained it better myself. I think it adds a level of attention to detail that makes Bishop bikes just a little more special.

There aren't very many builders doing this. DiNucci comes to mind, but not many others.

Thanks! Wow, Bishop does nice work. I'm going to add him to my "short" list for my next bike! LOL And I agree, his work does look a lot like DiNucci.

A few details.....the down tube is round 35mm at the headtube and ovalized 37.3X26.1mm (essentially a COLUMBUS MAX OVAL) at the BB along with a tapered seat tube that is 31.7 at the BB and 28.6 at the seat top tube junction for a stiff drive train that uses a 27.2 seatpost for compliance.

The main triangle is together. With an old hero looking on...... And another pic of his outrageous lugs....filleted and filed to perfection.
