Fit up and ready for some seatstays.

Radiusing the tops of the dropouts

Originally I was planning on using 3/4" x .035 for the seatstays as well as the chainstays. After getting the yokes all done, I was amazed at how stiff the chainstays were and realized that 3/4" was overkill for the seatstays, especially on a bike that I'm trying to keep light. I switched to 5/8" x .035 This meant that I needed to make new bullets. These are much lighter. I even added a little cutout on the side just to save those precious 2 grams.
