I don’t have to tell anyone around here that @Cyclops is weird guy; most of you have already figured that out, and if you haven’t figured it out, you will soon enough.

  1. @Cyclops Good job! What is you time frame to get a frame from drawings to ready for paint? In work hours and in calendar days? Just curious. »

The Ride. It is the cathedral of our sport, where we worship at the altar of the Man with the Hammer. It is the end to our means. Indeed, The Bike may be the central tool to our sport, but to turn the pedals is to experience the sensation of freedom, of flight. It is all for The Ride.The world is overflowing with small, twisty roads that capture ou...

The Bike. It is the central tool in pursuit of our craft. A Velominatus meticulously maintains their bicycles and adorns them with the essential, yet minimal, accoutrement. The Rules specify the principles of good taste in configuration and setup of our machines, but within those principles lies almost infinite room for personal taste.It seems in s...

  2. @Chris Tell me about it!   @Frank  Umm, for the last few days my status on the V has gone from Black to level 4 and back, depending which device I am using or if I am logging in from home or work. Just mentioning it, but is there something that can b… »

  1. I love that you did a bit of fillet brazing too. I love it because you can really build up the bass and shape it afterwards. Basstafarians Unite! »

  2. @Cyclops Hey ol’ one eye, I have been busy around the studio, but I did get a chance to read your article (and totally Delgado the VSP!) Great read. Great build. As a fledging businessman in the industry, chapeau and keep on it! If you want to make one f… »

  1. @G’rilla nice! »

The Ancients dedicated a Velomiskrit prayer to the Prophet, who cast into the rock of Mount Velomis, The Rules.It is customary for a Velominatus to repeat this prayer prior to embarking on each ride in order to ensure safe passage and laying down of The V. The prayer should be closed by a moment of silence and flashing the Secret Sign of the Mer...

  1. @Ron Yeah Ron. Pretty awesome. This will be made into a proper alter/hommage in the studio. The provenance of the signature is super reliable. Within the industry in Canada, my source for this and a few other super sweet bits, was a Campagnolo GM answerin… »
