    It’s hideous but quite impressive. Not sure why you’d build a TT bike that’s not UCI legal tho. Or do triathlons not need to have a UCI legal bike?

    Not sure bikes had to be approved by the UCI in 2009? I thought it was a pretty decent looking thing, especially in the matt black paint before he finished it off.

    Spotted this post of Reddit earlier this even. Great looking homemade bike with some nifty features like the rear brake placement. Not sure about the sliding dropouts though:

    All started from this design:

    I’ll not post the finished bike here as it’s nice to see the build process on the link below 🙂

    I’m impressed though that head tube machining is horrible.

    thats awesome and really good effort, only thing better would have been to do the forks in the same way.
    still from scratch that’s pretty impressive.

    I saw the first bit with the milled head tube and thought it was going to be a home brew carbon job with all that machining to help bonding, but its a welded TT frame with body filler used to blend the weld surfaces and make it look like a composite aero frame, why didn’t he make a plug and laminate a frame, it would have been quicker and neater…

    First crack at a homemade bike, that’s bloody impressive. Hope he got a decent job in the bike industry on the back of that, (if that was his aim)

    Like that a lot. Wonder what he’s done since?
