Kvale tells me that the ghost in the build queue showed up with his parts. What? I think we both assumed this guy was a figment of someone's bicycle imagination as he's been lurking unseen in the queue for a year or more. The upshot of this is that instead April, I've been bumped out to May. On a more upbeat note, Vincent Dominguez and I have come to terms on the stem for the May bike - fillet-brazed with the earlier discussed bi-laminate front lug, finished in polished nickel.
