On the latest update we had for the tandem project, NickD over at DiBlasi Engineering finished up some of the welding that needed to be done.
The first order of business was to install and weld on the cross bar that goes between the captain and stoker seat tubes. This helps to reinforce the structure and to provide some rigidity so it won’t flex…or at least I think that’s what it’s supposed to do. I forgot exactly how NickD explained it all.
In this photo, NickD had to cut the welds he made on the top tubes to make sure the cross bar would fit properly. See that keg in the background. For fun, he’ll lift it over his head…ya something about working out so he can be strong when he works out.
Tada! Pretty nice eh?!
Here’s the front triangle with the cross bar installed and all the welds completed.
We still have a few more steps to complete. One of them would have to be installing cable/brake mounts throughout the frame. We actually only need 3 of those total. Once those are done, we’ll have it powder coated.
