90 degrees and it still feels cold outside

Not too bad. A little clean up, and a very little tweaking from heat distortion and we're ready to go . . . Oh and one more small detail . . . The bottom bracket is 90 degrees off.

. . . but I'm not totally put out. It's heavy than I thought . . . right before I discovered the 90 degree detail, I was looking for ways to possibly drill to the plate to relieve some weight. I'm beginning to think . . . well I'm not sure what to think. I know after failure simplicity looks real good. Simply order a longer set of chainstays, or use some other dropouts. but if your building a custom bicycle what's the point of convention?
