Swedish drafting table base 1930~1960ish. Priced between not too bad and ridiculous. – Bill

A lot of the better Swiss shops use set ups like this and they are amazing. Makes abolutely anything else seem like the K-Mart option.

Oh so that’s how you assemble a bike? I guess I’ve been doing it wrong for 15 years? Oh wait no, that’s how I’ve been doing it for 15 years.

Interesting he uses carbon grease for the BB cups- I wonder if this is because the bike rebuilt so often?

Regardless of how often a bike is rebuilt, there is no reason NOT to use grease.

What cable cutters was he using. The cut was super clean. The use of two sided tape for the foam grips was interesting. I tried the foam grips once and they spun when ever the bike got wet so I dumped them. I’d be interested in doing it again if this trick works. Also it was interesting he was able to just slip them on without any compressed air.
