- New custom hardtail, fillet brazed loveliness!
Finished colour is interesting, took a moment to understand why it was a Ti finish then a white finish (obviously went no paint, white, ti)
Was gunna moan about why you’d put a BB90 (or whatever stupid std) but I see you have an EBB fitted for flexibiltyPosted 4 years agoslackaliceMember
Beautiful! I’m liking that a lot, nice work there chap.
What was/is your rationale behind the seatstays continuing to the down tube? Purely aesthetic or are they smaller gauge and possibly lighter?
The stem and saddle position give an indication that it might be a bit short for you, or do you like your bike’s that way?Posted 4 years ago
Thanks for the nice comments, glad i’m not the only one who likes it. The next one will evolve a bit but really happy with how it has turned out. Very safe geo, 18″, 71 deg head, 73 deg seat, 600mm top tube, 445mm chain stay, 305mm BB height. Only rode it for the first time yesterday and it rides real nice. I built it up with old bits in the garage so there are a few weird bits on it, when i have rode it a bit more i will change stem and bars to something more suitable. Seatstays were like it for aesthetic reasons originally, not sure if they will stiffen up the front triangle but i rolled them through a former so they are ovalized, thinner from the side to give it flex, wider from the top to give it lateral strength. Obviously not for sale and as for my weeds, your not supposed to be looking at them. 😀Posted 4 years ago
Looks like i have to build some for friends, so there should several flying around cannock chase by the end of the year, that will give me chance to try out a few things including a fat. Next one is for my brother who is 6′ 5″ so will be interesting to see how it translates to something the size of a 5 bar gate.Posted 4 years ago
