    *** The Final Update of Project Right has been posted.

    Just another quick update on this NAHBS project.  The rear end is coming along nicely.  Rob had this to say, “Jigging the back end of this thing is tricky. With a regular frame the stays are triangulated, and thus don’t move during the brazing process. With the mono-stay I have to keep the stay from moving with the heat, and ensure the ‘dropout’ remains perfectly in plane with the bottom bracket shell.

    I have the chainstay to BB junction fully brazed and everything aligned, so now I just need to clamp it firmly to the alignment table when I add the triangulation brace. You can see the lightening holes in the BB shell, and also how the rear hub will match with the frame (the ‘dropout’ has a keeper in it to prevent distortion during brazing). I was worried that the oversize chainstay with the reinforcement sleeve would be heavy, but it isn’t much more than a pair of chainstays. I’ll wait to finish off the back end until I have the wheel built, but will put the front triangle together this week.
