Pacenti lugs- before and after





Here's some Pacenti lugs before and after I carved them up. This is a twist on the way that I typically carve them up. The window or cut out that I usually do is a tear drop of sorts. In these pictures the cut out is more of a traditional triangular window. What do you think? The lugs will be thinned after the front triangle is brazed up.

I immediately thought of a suit of armour; the steel, but mostly the very strong, tight windows and curves of the shorelines; very strong, fierce!

love 'em. What type of frameset are they going to be used on?

The lugs are going on a gravel road race bike of sorts. Road position, low bb, light tubes (7-4-7), cantis, 32mm tires and fenders.
