some better photos than I got:

Got all of the parts on it (that I am supplying). A Brooks saddle will replace the loner. Wayne is a wood worker so it'll likely get a better looking platform than the one I made.
nature's sand pumptrack is best hours after a rain. Over by the water's edge is some phone killing quicksand.

Anthills jam is coming up, I've been wasting time out there. Emmett jumps the big line that's been steepened significantly. The 2nd jump is hairy big and I'll try to get video.
I'm building up this complete bike and hopefully Wayne doesn't hate all of the components that I chose. We're going for a lower budget (~$650 in parts that we aren't making). I didn't know how impossible it is to find decent bolt-on (complete) wheels. So I'll be building the front wheel.

i'll try to get close ups of the bars in daylight. The mirror clear makes it difficult to capture, but these have a lot of blues and greens in the patina because I stained and coated them immediately. When you wait a few hours or days to powdercoat them, the patina is much more red and orange.
