Time Lapse Video: Front Triangle Braze

Mr. Goodman's Bicycle Tubes

I spent Sunday in the shop and decided to make another time lapse video. I'm working on Dave's bike, which is going to be a lugged commuter-style machine, with some cool features. This time lapse is of the front triangle being mitered and brazed, and then drilled for water bottle mounts, which I braze in right at the end. I hope you enjoy.

Here's a video of mitering and brazing the front triangle of Dave G.'s bicycle frame. Also shows three sets of water bottle bosses drilled and brazed in.

Great. You really do that thing by yourself?

If by "that thing" you mean build a bicycle from start to finish, then the answer is Yes. That's what I do.

Wow! That's quite a job. I'm just curious. How long does it take to finish building a bicycle?

November 15, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterVivian Kendricks

Good question. There's no straight answer. It can take from about 3 days to 3 weeks depending on how involved the build is. If there are custom racks, a custom stem or polished stainless steel bits the time it takes gets longer and longer.
