Is that for making sure you dont leave any mud behind on the trails and take it home with you? Looks mudtraptastic.
Yeah David. That’s exactly why we did it.
Oh my aching ribs.
Ahem. Right. Any mud that’s arrived at that point (by virtue of the ridiculous amounts of radial clearance on the seat stays) won’t get trapped in that bit, as that bit is already shielded by the front mech.
So the front mech will catch it, and there isn’t a lot I can do about that to be honest, well, except the fact that the mud clearance at the seatstays is slightly less than the mud clearance at the chainstays, so that the big stuff gets scraped off up top, rather than down below.Posted 9 years ago
Still not sure i understand the need for bolt on cable guides, surely they cant be any lighter/stronger/neater/cheeper than normal ones?
It came about from people asking about Rohloffs, and SS and all sorts. And the fact that a triple top tube cable guide on a ti frame costs a fortune, even before you’ve welded it on. And I was never very impressed with the fact that you have to weld bits onto ti frames “just” to guide cables.
Ti cable guide – $7.92 even if you buy loads – http://www.paragonmachineworks.com/product_details.php?productId=248&categoryId=4
And once we’d done it on the Ti frame, we thought it would be nice to do it on the others. We still might not. Got to look at options. I like it though. Got my samples through today and when I get 5mins I’ll shoot some pics.Posted 9 years agoscruffMember
Im not bothered about mud clearance as I live somewhere where the trails are still good all winter, however my frame has double the clearance of my forks, especially my older ones in the shape of a nice Italian ‘M’.
Fugly gusset twixt Top/down/head. Needs a nice smoothly blended one.Posted 9 years ago
any connection to the drinking hole by that name down Hebden (ish) way (Mankinholes or somewhere similar?)
is that a ‘fettlers elbow’ chainstay?

If you can see that when you’re on the bike, you’ve fallen off it..
I have plans for all sorts of head tube area things, but perfectly happy with that for now.Posted 9 years agoneilb67Member
The first few times I looked at the frame i liked the gusset around the toptube/ downtube area. But the more I look at it the more I have to agree with Scruff. Just looks a bit odd. Have you looked at maybe a cnc’d brace. Something similar to the cnc’d brace on the Airborne Black Widow…. Just a thought….Posted 9 years ago
