Hello all,

Martin Coopland sent some photos of his swanky Maclean (or is it MacLean?) frame, and I've put them up on the web at http://bulgier.net/pics/bike/CoolBikes/MacLean/

A fresh, original design and impressive workmanship - check it out! Be sure to note the graceful seatstay tops, and the way he stepped the 7/8" chainstay sockets on the BB shell down to the 3/4" stays. Those seatstay tops don't come curved you know - imagine blacksmithing those to the nice curve you see there, without mashing the ridge down the middle. Tricky!

In case anyone doesn't get my shorthand: HT = Head Tube, ST = Seat Tube, DT = Down Tube, BB = Bottom Bracket.
