First shot of Willie's fork
...along with a bunch of other forks. Normally I'm not much of a fan of the assembly-line system of building stuff, but I am all out of the steerer tube I use the most of the time (the excellent OXPLATMSRD-LT that I pestered True Temper into making 5 years ago), so I spent the day mitering things up. Not shown are the disc mounts and crown races, but those are all prepped and ready to go too - which means I will have a long day of welding ahead of me when I get back from Bend.
I'll probably do a few posts from Bend, and Sarah is going to be spending some of her time working on finishing writing (due November first!) her doctoral biochemistry thesis, so I'll also have some time to answer emails and do design work (and even order parts for folks).
