Chainstays again

First you have to get your stuff laid out. I've got all the centerlines, and clearances marked. Now I'm going to trace my yoke and the dropouts on . . . Yes the dropouts are 90 off. It just gives it something to line up to.

I need a 6 degree bend not to far, Like before I'm using a conduit bender. These chainstays are a lot tougher than 4130 to bend. At one point I didn't think I was going to get it done. I found the chainstay was too short to bend, so I have to put a piece of 1" 4130 over the othe end to get leverage.

It worked perfectly.

How about Moby doing, Mission of Burma's, "That's when I reach for my Revolver"?

OK what about the next race?
mwi's Gentlemens Race

It's a 55 mile, 6 man Team Time Trial, on farm roads in south-east, MO. Instead of re-inventing the wheel, just click on the link about and find out more if your interested.
I was going to ride the course today, but I shyed away from the ice pellets coming from the sky. I've had to ride in them a couple times. Once they start bead blasting your face, you tend to slow down. A visor helps. Well it would have been epic.

Dude, I just noticed that the Gentleman's race starts and ends at my neighborhood clubhouse. What the fuck? I didn't think there was a single other cyclist in my neighborhood.
