- BIke frame design? XACD
After a lot of searching for a HT frame, I still don’t think that I can find exactly what I want. I saw a thread recently talking about XACD Ti bikes. Nice custom Ti bikes made to your specification it seems. Many recommendations are to know what you want (check) and a rough idea of geometry (not check). How do I do this? I don’t want to go into too much detail about what I want here as it’ll be boring. Has anyone here designed their own frame? Did you just copy another?Posted 6 years ago
Can I design a frame to be slack with a 120mm fork and still ride well?IvanDobskiMember
I’m currently getting a custom ti ht frame built up by Justin Burl, I’m essentially getting a slighter longer soul with an EBB and Dialled Alpine style dropped top tube. Frames are built in Russia at a factory he’s worked with for ages, have a lifetime warranty and are very affordable – not xcad cheap but you have a lot more peace of mind. A lot of his frames have been in the roadie press with good write-ups.
Designwise it’s a 2-way street, you say you want x,y & z from certain bikes, tell him your height, weight and riding style etc and he makes some suggestions. I’m awaiting my first set of drawings as I type – can’t wait.
So far I’m very impressed with the service, I emailed a certain uk based frame company on friday morning essentially trying to order an off-the-peg frame from them. In the time taken for then to get back to me Justin had sealed the deal and started work…Posted 6 years ago
