650b commuter

Been working on a commuter bike for a friend this week. I managed to wrap up the frame and fork yesterday. It's a pretty straightforward build. 650x42b tires, disc brakes, fenders, fillet brazed, lugged fork crown. There's a couple of nice details there. I'm very happy with how the seat cluster and dropout finishing turned out. More pics here.

The project isn't done yet, however. This one is getting a full set of custom built racks. But that's for next week...
