The vent holes have been drilled for the chainstays. I will attach them right after Festivus. This year, I have done repairs on some other 'boutique" bikes and have noticed that there were no vent holes. How do the welding gases and condensation escape? You gotta have vent holes. Also, the front triangle, with the uncut head and seat tube and all braze ons weighs 2lbs. 5 oz. Not bad for a frame this big. By the way, it won't fit in the blast cabinet. And the fillets aren't finished due to my lacerated finger and five different seasonals in my fridge.
And just for fun, here's a pic of Dylan circumventing some mud at Nationals. How long till cross season starts?
