I was waiting to see photos of this frame. Cool to see Ted's welds prior to any PC or paint going onto the frame!

I like the pre-paint pictures as well but sometimes hesitate to post them since they aren't all "polished" up before paint. I really appreciate seeing the skill that these builders have before it gets all covered up.

Is that an xtra thick lower cup on the headset?

-Schmitty-
On the painted one - yeah - that's a Cane Creek S3+5 headset. The lower cup is +5mm taller than the stock S3.

Yep, when the REBA first came out there were issues with the top caps clearing the frames and the taller headset was one solution. Now all of the frames take this into account so it isn't necessary but back then, it was a good work around.
