Here are some pictures of a touring bike I made at the UBI silver brazing class in May of 2010. The steering tube decal is powdered glass melted on a bent brass plate. I used O2 and methane, but I have heard of people using mepp gas. Components: Wheels built by Joe Young Wheels Texas, Chris King headset, Phil Wood hubsets, Shimano Dura Ace downtube shifters, Shimano SLX front and rear derailleurs, 11-32 rear cassette, 22/32/44 front chainrings. The bike has a long wheelbase and I can climb a barn roof in low gear. It rides great and shifts like a dream. I took it to Utica, NY last summer — 500 miles round trip — no problems. I had an auto body shop paint the frame. The decal on the seat tube was made from a stencil I ordered online.
