Through a trade with listmember Stevan Thomas (NortonMarg@aol.com), I finally scored me a set of Art Stump dropouts. You may recall me whining awhile back that I made a couple bikes with those back in the day, but didn't keep any for myself. To paraphrase a Monty Python character, I think they're as beautiful as... as something that's really, really beautiful!

I sure like having them on my desk to twiddle, but now that my wife has seen them, she demands that I put them on her frame, so I am still looking for another pair to have on my desk (and maybe build into a frame for myself someday) - any more out there?

To see what all the fuss is about, if you haven't seen or don't remember the Stump dropouts, I put a pic of one up at http://bulgier.net/pics/bike/FrameParts/StumpDropout.jpg

There's also a pic of the Art Stump fork crown there, http://bulgier.net/pics/bike/FrameParts/StumpCrown.jpg
