  • And I built a new front wheel for the Cube project. Regular 3x on the disc side, double snowflake on the non disc side.

    First time trying double snowflake.

  • wow! too cool that snowflake and i love the yellow and black bike!

  • That looks so wild! Are those last three photos showing the finished wheel with final tension?
    Or just laced up? I'm wondering if the small kinks in the spokes will straighten out with more tension?

    What's silver fork on the orange bike? That head tube to fork transition is spot on. ;-)

  • Ti spokes on the Profiles?

  • How did you know what spoke lenght to start with?

  • Those photos were it tensioned up. It’ll probably have settled in a bit now and would vendor from a retensioning.

    The silver fork is a Marin one i bought from here. Bit heavy but suits it so well.

  • Yeah, mental money.

  • I had spokes that were 6mm longer than you’d use for traditional 3x and they worked!

    I had no idea if they would.

    Single lacing snowflake uses 2mm per twist.

  • Here’s some Photos of the bike all painted and assembled.

  • So good and so wild, as always.

  • thats amazing

  • Looks ace well done.

    Is that a coupling on the seat stays?

    Do you sell the bars that are on your cube?

  • Yeah, couple to allow the belt in.

    Bars moved over from the cube.

  • Ah yes of course. I should have gueessed that. It looks very neat.

    You selling any bars like that soon. Would love a set on my new build.

  • Amazing stuff! Sorry if I missed it but whats the story behind the horizontal tube with the coins(?) in the seat tubes?

  • There’s no story really, I prefer monostays/wishbone to stays that both come up to the seattube, the track frame I did hope I did it as Id seen another framebuilder do something similar. Coins are just an easy way to cap a tube. I’ve used them a fair bit in frames I’ve built and modified.
