aliens in the bicycle shop?

while doing some wheel inventory/organizing/cleaning we came across some interesting lifeforms that may be extra-terrestrial.

back in biz

stole away from work for an hour on thurs to bring my regulators to the LWS. they were very helpful and got me going again. very happy i didnt have to send out my regs for repair! so i should be making some good headway on current racks and new ones over the next week.
also tried something i hadnt done for a while..Quality Control, see pic. tube tore apart and left the joint intact. i think i am going to run some experiments using different mixes of tubing diameter and wall thickness and use progressively less brass on them and see how minimal of a fillet is necessary to maintain a solid joint.

oh geez

spring time in a bike shop! past two weeks have been quite busy at work.
i would also like to mention chris and angela's new child, evey. got a chance to meet the young lady this past sunday. adorable!

so, on and off i have been prepping the bits and pieces left to mount the current rack to the fork. tonight i finished off some stuff and prepared to braze some more of it together....

unfortunately my acetylene regulator is malfunctioning. in an attempt to avoid disaster i will have to bring it to my local welding supply and have it serviced. i hope i wont be without it for too long, i'm ready to do some work!
