I know I haven't posted in a long time, but I just had to share that my new frame is at the painter. I have my Campy gruppo ready and waiting. I'll post some pics when it's built up.

Peace,

Nice. Thats the first frame I've seen built with the E-Richie/Bridgestone lugs, I have two sets here I bought from Rivendell, but have never seen them brazed up.

What color are you painting it? What kind of fork, details man, details.

Unless I'm mistaken, I'm pretty sure he used the Pacenti Artisan lugs on this one. The fork crown is from R. Sachs. It's going to be black with an ivory headtube & downtube panel. Should look really nice. It's gonna be mostly Campy Chorus with Campy Neutron wheels and Oval Concepts stem, bars, post. And after seeing all MB1's bike porn photos I had to go ahead and get the Chris King headset.
I can't wait!

Thanks,

The Pacenti Artisan lugs were designed by Richard Sachs (Known as E-Richie here on the board.) for Bridgestone back in the late 80's. But they decided against them because they were to complicated to make and braze in large numbers. Rivendell used them for a while after that, which is how I got mine. Finally, this spring Sachs teamed up with Kirk Pacenti to bring them into the hands of frame builders.

Why not go with a Lugged stem kit, the ones Darrell McCulloch sells through www.Bikelugs.com.

It's kind of disturbing to think of you riding something with gears. The paint scheme sounds great--looking forward to seeing the finished rig. Since no one else has asked yet, who did you/your brother take the frame to for the painting?

hi those are kp's artisan lugs but you are thinking of another
set by citing that anecdote. here is that set:

kp will have those soon. here is the story behind them:

pcd will asign a model name to this set, and i am certain
that artisan is what he calls his other set.

Yeah, it's been a while since I've had a bike with gears. Might take a while to get used to.

I am sorry, I just noticed a few differences, like on the very front where your dips down, theres a point on the Artisan. The ones I got from Rivendell are definately your ones though, to bad I'm missing a seat lug, or I might try to build something with them.

cool. you'll also notice that the other lugs
have a different set of i.d.'s and the two
sets will not fit the same set(s) of tubes.
