Looking through these posts you've made some very impressive bits and pieces.... I'm curious to see this wheel project you've hinted at. Great work, awesome ride.

Hi everybody¡¡

Some months ago i said that i gonna publicate the way i do some pieces. Well, sorry for the delay, but here are the first steps of the simplest one.
This is a part of a Dura-ace 7700 brake.

The first step is to cover the holes and to do a wall for simplify the process. The green stuff is simple kids plasticine.

After, you have to cover with some Gelcoat. I used Axson GC 1050/ GC-10 but anyone could serve. (Although first, you have to also cover the piece with some "desmoldant"/ release agent).

You have to wait around two hours, and then put the putty. I use a fiber glass one, from Axon too. It´s Epolam-400, but again, any putty could serve (even plaster).

And that's all for now. Next update will be sooner :soon: than this, ´cos i´m uploading this at more or less real time.
I´m also doing a carbon trumpet at same time, and it could serve as an exemple for the pressure way of working for hollow pieces, but i preffer to wait for a more "cyclistic" hollow piece.

Hi everybody and thanks a lot for your messages. Sorry for these months lapsus, but i´ve been surviving and had no time for crazy stuff, nor even time to ride my bike :(

Anyway, here comes some new photos and the compromise to show you all above projects finished before next year.

The first new thing is this carbón antischleck:

Its nice, ultra-indestructible and light, but not light enough. I want it under 4 grams and now is 5,3.

Jajajaja, I just reread and I've realized how sick I am. But yes, this carbón antischleck is 1.5 grams too heavy.... :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Other little thing i did last days is this repair of bottle cage. It brokes and i took advantage to lower a bit the center of gravity :P

Right, i can´t feel this 20 mm descent of the water weight (nor the 1,5 weight reduction in the future antischleck) but these kind of things freaks me out anyway :oops:

Here comes other bit of crazyness with some carbon Spoodpley plates. Here you can see the first steep:

And tomorrow more pictures. This time you can bet on it :thumbup:
