it was nearly 10 years ago that my Richie-Issimo lug sets came on to the market. it was my humble attempt at becoming my own supplier as well as a source for other effbuilders to tap for what was then a shrinking pool of raw material. since that time, i’ve done another 18 or so mold tools for cast lugs, fork crowns, b.b. shells, and braze-ons. this past autumn i decided to grow the original parts and make them available for OS2 frame dimensions atmo. i call the updated version Sax Max because – just because – and the first samples arrived yesterday. in typical OCD style, i took about 600 pictures of them before lunch today and, what with country livin’ n shit, it took four hours to load them on flickr. the gallery is at this link and i will probably add some more still. but that won’t be until after i do a few smuttynose IPAs bro.
the short of it these are for 36mm head tubes, 34.9mm down tubes, and 31.8mm top and seat tubes. the complementary (that’s complement with an E…) 1 1/8″ fork crown is past the napkin stage and over in the solidworks cubicle à ce moment-ci.
