Nice short on Sean Walling, owner of Soulcraft, a custom steel bicycle frame shop in Petaluma, CA building a steel bike from scratch.

Thanks Will & Chris... I thought I'd tried every combination there was. It's always something obvious.

[edit] And if ever there were a "Joys of a Workshop" shop, this should be one. Not a CNC driven machine to be seen. His frame jig is a joy to behold.

Definitely a 29er.

Lew, the frame jig is made by a company called Anvil

A friend of mine has one, and it's amazing. His shop looks pretty similar, albeit quite a bit smaller.
