Cjell Bike

Someone asked for some photo's of Cjell's bike. He was over yesterday evening and I shot it before we got down to the business of the day, wabi-sabi and how it applies to bicycle design and maintenance.  ;-)  The horse looks a little battle worn right now. He's planning on blasting it, finishing it a little and getting a coat of paint on it - or maybe clearcoating it. I know nothing about MTB technology. If you have any questions, post them and I'll have Cjell answer them. And special thanks to Lorna for the grilled chicken and potatoes catered down to the Growlery. And to Cjell for the Bitter Neighbor Black IPA.











Be well, be joyful

I've not seen that hub. Please to say what gives. Also, the chainstay/BB yoke looks like there is more than meets my eye. How many full canned beers does the bag hold?

And clear coat.

Gunnar Berg said...

The BB yoke is adjustable to accomodate chain length. I'll ask Z-Man about the hub and beer qty. (He brought bottled beer.)

Next, photos of the interior of his mobile frame shop!

I reckoned it might be something along those lines regarding the yoke, though I can't see how you tension it. Is there some hidden bolt in there pushing from the BB? And the seat stays take it? They just take it?

It looks like some eccentric hub nut job, but that would use the drop-out as it's pivot.

I believe there are set screws on the underside. And yeah the cammed rear hub would seem to make that redundant. I may see him this afternoon. I'll check it out.
