As I've been taking on more projects, the question as to what I will and what I won't do has presented itself more seriously. As much as I appreciate variety, and it is true that variety is the spice of life, sometimes you need to reel it in and focus. There are so many things about bikes you begin to appreciate once you start making them, and so many things you feel you need to try, but in framebuilding as in many other things, repetition is key. I'm making a point of limiting my scope as a builder in these formative years of mine, and mastering those things first which are essential, and then taking on only those challenges I feel are worthy of repetition. Slowly, the list is growing.

Making my own seatstay caps is on the list.
