Unsure what more info you're looking for. Seams you already have a good understanding of their construction.
I stared at the pictures for about an hour. There's so much going on. It's a masterpiece!What.
(and seatpost clamp)
that is insane. I can't stop looking
Glad to hear you're rolling down the road to recovery
Thanks to you man that poor kid will be wearing 6" of bubble wrap and an exoskeleton next time he goes to the park on his bike.manipulating the mouse buttons with the middle and ring fingers sucks!
I was thinking one of these dressing the wound for the first time.

I still ride pretty hard for 50+. I try to refrain, but when a youngster goes higher off the coping I gotta go next. This latest injury is a wake-up call to start backing down... I hope. It could've gone much worse. The look of a mother with her kid in the park seeing my finger tip hanging off Cycling has caused me much pain and bills over the years. Completely lost the skin of my palms not so long ago. Remarkable how fingerprints grow back eh.
Appears we have bit in common. I wrote early netcodes for gaming simulators way back. I've been online since the 90's. I remember using the first BB codes
Hey @Wildcat, nothing of mine you liked?
I try to do downhill whenever possible. At 62, it is much easier than uphillYeah we got a lot in common. Lots of Sports injuries!
I haven’t been in a pool since they tore down the Mogul Bowl here about 1979. I learned to quit while I was ahead.
Now I’m just riding bikes and skating for fitness. I don’t do downhill anymore either.
Tony Iommi from Black Sabbath lost the tips off 2 of his left fingers, index and middle. He is credited to be one of if not the first rock guitarists to tune to e flat to make playing easier. He also wore two thimbles on the fingers to press on the strings.I like your dropout design a lot. My Flying Wedge in the back for comparison has something similar. The Apollo clone towers all other 20'' frames of the type. Those are BMX OS20 wheels in the picture(22''). Friends 6 feet+ compliment the Wedge's roominess. It's very heavy though. I'd definitely want to build a lightweight wedge using the open down tube(rails) from the Apollo in the future.
Already started a hole in the box stay to help straitening the frame quicker. Lighting holes, especially the dimpled type are interesting. They add a level of depth by removing materiel. With the frame on its side I placed coins on the square tubing for a look-see. Holes are the way to go. Regarding materials. I dabble with 3D modeling software. A tank can be printed. I was considering filling the entire sides of the frame, possibly even a woody. Hidden potential everywhere... Haven't past tech stuff to get it rolling properly yet.
People, protect your fingers! Basic & essential activities become near impossible missing an index finger! Detail work will have to wait. I'm a quick healer fortunately.
That Aristotle quote reminds me of another master. Michaelangelo said that he didn't sculpt things out of stone, he uncovered the things which were already in the stone. He revealed that inner significance of the medium itself, not just the image portrayed.
You are entirely correct. I'm attempting a more feminine approach to my Build. Also building it for my wife in a so far fruitless attempt to pull her into this thing of ours. I'd love to see more female builders take part. I don't see the kids jumping in, too many barriers in the way, technology being one; they just ain't doing forums like they used to.An issue I'm having in demonstrating my process, is that 2/3rds of the people I appeal to are not present on RRB, women and children. There's too much testosterone around.
Really feeling good about that moth I posted now, you should check out some of that stuff tooJust last night I was admiring the beauty and structure of bird's feathers peering through my scope. Organic textures would be a welcome addition to my build.
