Neil's Frame Begins

I've started on the first "real frame" that will be ridden.  It's for Neil (and he's terribly excited) and here are his tubes ready to start marking and cutting.
This frame will have an integrated seat tube and the post head Neil provided had a 33.9mm ID.   I built up the top end of the seat tube to fit by wrapping in carbon (being carefull to keep it straight).
Next I put the tube in the lathe and inserted the end plug.
Then I wrapped it in flash breaker and shrink tape.
Then it's off to the oven for 2+ hours of baking.  The oven now has the heat dissipation modifications (fingers crossed that it all works).
