36er madness!

Finally working on Jay’s bike (we were waiting for rims and tires). 36ers just look…weird on the fixture. Probably because of the insane head tube height (you actually have to leave the HT like 30-40mm too long and CUT IT OFF LATER because you can’t set the fixture high enough!) or maybe the outrageous curve on the seat tube…

Long story short, they’re fun. Except for the compound ST/DT miter. That has to be cut at _60_ degrees. No fun at all. Look at the length of that welded joint!
