Overview of my handmade bicycle

I'm sure I will make more videos specific to individual components of this bike, but this video goes over most of the parts. If you'd be interested in seeing more videos detailing how I made it (or about some of my other projects) comment/like/subscribe and I'll put the time into editing. Here are some of the things I could make videos about, let me know which you'd be most interested in:

Making an Elliptical Storm Window

So I had spent a long cold winter fabricating around forty-or-so old tymee tilt out storm windows for our 1895 house. That was tough but I was left with an even more vexing problem of how to protect an elliptical leaded glass window high up on the facade. First was getting on a  high ladder and taking measurements and then reproducing it in drawing. Suffice to say, the ancient Greeks figured out how to easily draw an ellipse with two sticks and a piece of string, but I cheated with digital drawing software and made a print out as a template.

Bike Hacks

So I ride my bike to and from work almost every day and given NHV's slow but methodical march towards normalization of bicycles on roadways, I decided it would be safe and proper to get a bike light. The bicycle accessory industry has a dazzling array of options with equally dazzling expense. Because my priorities are focused less upon lighting the roadway and more upon making my presence evident to motorists, I opted out of spending hundreds of dollars on a high tech “bike light”.
