Have a look at the original Plycycle here .

Refining the frame.

This is a fun bit but also a slow part of the build. Getting the shape to be the final shape. The main aim is to get rid of the excess epoxy, any staining that has occurred and to smooth out the lines and curves. Up until now the shapes have been very crude approximations of the final shape. Now I am loosing all the extra bits, lumps bumps and corners. It takes ages and I have to be patient.

Compare this with last time.....

A closer look with video.

There is still a way to go before it is ready for varnishing, but I am happy with the progress.

I still don't know how I am going to fix the seat post in. Latest thought is to chop off the riser and epoxy it in like last time, but that seems a bit defeatist, so I will try and figure a simple way to make it adjustable.
