  • ^ Amazing. I'm guessing they were'nt at NAHBS. No need. People come to them. They won't even translate their webpage. The Chuck Norris of the bike world.

  • Harry your frame sounds really nice. How much is that costing you?

  • :d

    They weren't at the NAHBS because he die.

  • hubbas hubbas hubbas;

    I think the fork is a bit bent.

  • looks a bit big for you, ed.

  • Just a cm or 2

  • Not alarmingly big, I just put the saddle slightly lower than it should be as it's more comfortable for me even though it's not the most optimised position.

    also, I need a less aggressive saddle to bar drop, the Holdsworth fit the bill.

  • very nice, like what you've done with the cranks.

    It "looks" a tiny bit big, but then again i'm sure its set up so it fits correctly.

    The fork does look a little bent, you can fix that though.

  • Oh I was suggesting bilaminate as well as the mixture of fillet braze and lugs, just wasn't aware of the amount of work that is required for bilaminate construction.

    One thing I like the most about the forum is being able to learn something new everyday.

    still very purty though;

    Aha, yep I thought that's what you were saying, but this:

    Yep, Skully, I think Ed meant having lugs at the headtube and brazing at the seatube/toptube, for example.

    ... made me think I'd got it wrong. I know what you're like ed, don't I?!

    What about Alex Singer frames? I naively thought they were "combinations"

    @ Loic
    Yes: Bilaminate joins look like a combintaion of a lug and fillet brazing: I was really just trying to say to ed that the proper term is bilaminate, and that although it looks like a 'lug' on one side, in fact that layer is over the top of fillet brazing, which have to be hand cut, and brazed on wrapped over one side of the join: so they're not 'lugs' in the sense that you can't buy them pre-cast. Basically this is only semantics: and yes they do look lovely. I think a lot of more down to earth frame builders wouldn't want to do it, and no doubt probably think you're a poser... I know that the NAHBS lot are into all that... maybe someone like Mather or demon would be more receptive to esoteric resquests like these. And it would cost you!

  • I'm so glad the headtube weren't bilaminate! have to replace it soon due to headset no longer fitting in the headtube (right now it got a shim).

  • picked up another master, was a bit rusty and the chrome on the lugs is gone:(
    going to have it painted glossy black and build it up with the parts that are now on the Pinarello. So it will be only black and silver.

    chuck norris is the chuck norris of every world. get it straight.

  • Saddle height looks appropriate for the age of the frame IMO, great colour

  • Harry your frame sounds really nice. How much is that costing you?

    Aha.
    I don't know the final price yet.

    Less than Roberts want to charge me, more than I want to pay :P

  • Fruit: I really do hate you. What a fantastic collection. Lovely.

  • Current project. Not really got a chance to drop the hammer yet but it feels fairly nifty and I hope not to be dissapointed. Stem isn't decided yet, just this one on until I decide on exact position etc etc. Will post my other fixie also.

    I'd take one off your hands if you're ever you're Dublin!

    +1 :(

  • Okay, picked this frame up from Hilary last summer and it has taken forever to get it running! Had a big help/push from Loic without whose help this bike would still be sitting in the kitchen.

    Last thing I did was stick the H Lloyd "Holdsworth"'s on and I messed that right up. They're both too high and one is twisting. They're going to need to come off, and I hope that won't be too much work.

  • Nice. What bartape/grips are you putting on? That's also an interesting choice of pedals, will you be using this bike for longer rides?

    Tidy bike, nice photo.
