Map Cycles: Masi Fork Crown Oct 23, 2011


Framebuilding, like design in general, is as much about problem solving as it is craft and process. When I see a phototorial like this on a builder’s Flickr, I’m engaged. Map Cycles is making a Masi tribute bike and upon finding a Masi double fork crown to be damaged in some areas, Mitch enlisted a friend to build up with some tig and he then finished it off. This is the crown’s current state, but the process photos are gnarly. Check out the whole set here!
