Hello there - it has been a while since I wrote.  I had a bit of a mishap the other day - actually, a bit more than a mishap as it was a bike crash.  The crash was a major face plant which resulted in several lacerations on my face including a clean through cut on my upper lip and two teeth getting knocked out.  The crash landed me in the hospital over the weekend because of ongoing tingling and pain in my hands and arms.   The pain is now under control and some of the swelling has reduced, so I was released from the hospital and am now at home.  Looks like there will be some time needed for the healing process and I really can't do much work right now, if at all for this week.  This is a big bummer for me as I was getting started on a new frame.

 This is a short clip of my recent brazing on the 650b frame being built. It took me sometime to edit this video. But it is fun and useful to review it. The actual time it took to braze both joints on the headtube was much longer, but I think most people will be very bored to watch the whole process and so here is the condensed version.
