Mike and Jamie,
Yes indeed! Very nice work. I like the bilaminate approach you're taking for the head tube. I'm currently working on a similar sort of deal with a one piece looking head tube. I should have it at the Cirque. Is your frame going to be finished by that time? If so, I would certainly like t o see the finished product; like maybe even BEFORE it gets painted (lik e maybe it could be painted in California) ;-).
BTW, Jamie is a classic example of a multitalented person who has taken up framebuilding and is far beyond the level of skill that might be sugg ested by the relatively few frames he has built in his time at the craft . Shows what a certain amount and type of patience can do when combined with good reasoning skills and some craftsman like skills. I doubt if th ere are many in this catagory.
