Day Ten
The rear end and component assembly
Now we check the dropout alignment
After the dropouts are aligned, we check the derailleur ear alignment
Then we put in a wheel and check the
rear end alignment. We want to be sure
the wheel is center on the seat stays and
chain stays. The wheel may look center
on one set of stays but be out quiet a bit
on the others. This is what that dog leg
look is when spotted from behind. The
frame looks like it goes one way and the
wheel points another.
We check parts inventory
Install bottom bracket spindels in to
eccentric shells
Crank arms and rear wheel are then installed.
Seat posts, stems and bars are now
Looking like a bike??? We start to
hang chain.
So far so good. Next week...more parts.
We will be on a test ride before you know it.
