Situation Normal: All F'd Up! A little WWII era acronym for ya to sum up how I'm feeling right now. Had to put Scott's bike on a brief hold to do a cool fixed gear for Max. I prepped the lugs and BB, mitered all the tubes, was all set to go and..........doh! The BB shell I got has Italian threading! I sure am glad I saw it before I brazed the tubes in. Got a call into Nova, getting a new shell expedited......nice way to put the pressure on to make the delivery date, huh?

In the meantime, here's a pic of the ht/dt braze after a good wire brushing- it's the only joint I don't need the bb to do.
