After riding the Hottest Day of the Year ride from the Lucky Lab and fixing grand kids BMX bikes, I decided to get some of the less exciting things done.
I made the pictured tube block for the chain stays. Then I finished the mandrel for pinching them. Before the inferno like heat of my garage chased me indoors, I spent a long time reshaping the socket ends of the chain stays. They come from Columbus at 28mm x 18mm. They need to be 30mm x 16mm to match the BB socket. All we need now is the BB.
Still no word from Hank about the discrepant length of the top and seat tubes. Time for something really cold.
