Bottom Bracket Post



Here is a photo from my machine shop class up at Marin College. I just thought that the variety of shavings were cool (I’m easily amused). I’m working on making a bottom bracket post that I can mount onto my granite surface plate. It’s been slow progress up until this point (between work, taking a class, and all the rest of life’s distractions), but I think as soon as I can get this piece finished and mounted, I can finally start working on a front triangle.

I got the idea to make this piece from Jonny Cycles’ Flickr account. I saw Jonny Cycles back at NAHBS in 2006 and it was kind of a perspective changing moment. At that moment, I realized that a bicycle can really showcase your personal style.

Anyway, here’s a picture of what I’m essentially copying.
