Nao at Tomii Cycles posted this photo on his Flickr the other day and it really struck me as both a unique photo and construction method. The juxtaposition of the cold, hard steel and the warm, rich hardwood, coupled with precision tools really speaks a lot about framebuilding. To top it off, the simple wood screw at the fork end shows a no-nonsense approach to the builder’s m.o.
I see a lot of framebuilder’s process photos, yet this one really did it for me.
Now it’s time to get over to Tomii cycles to shoot some photos, don’t you think?
