Ha that belongs in vmb
Oh my thats pretty.
I just built my Omnium with 32 / 11-28 (10 speed) and it seems fine for London. Traded off some low end for closer ratios because big jumps are quite unpleasant when carrying weight.
I would prob braze the bits for the FD though to keep options open. If I ever want to venture further afield I will have to add quite a lot of ugly things to enable +1 front cog.
I did braze it on. I was like fuck it. It is heavy and ugly already
I did some experiments in making a stainless steel KØRDØR seat tube "decal" yesterday. It was a bit of a time waster that proved hard to roll consistently. It might be possible to shape it a bit when soldering it on but might end up looking a bit rough. I might not use it. But it served as a vehicle for getting my pantograph up and running. I plan on engraving a headtube next
I also did a brass AFSTED! (The Danish equivalent of "Up and Away!")
But I am wanting a bit less vintage style for the cargo bike.
The text is a bit faint also. So again good learning experience but probably won't be used.
I did also snap the kickstand testing it and straightening it.
This is what happens when you weld on butted tubes ;)
Luckily it was just a prototype and I have fresh proper tubing to make a new nicer one.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
