    Without mega stress and ridiculous after hours this was never gonna he ready for race day...yesterday...so I spent a bit more time on details rather than just hammering in together

    Wasn’t happy with the seatstay/dropout junction form in fit m-up so added some more material to the dropout to be able to find a nice shape

    Only got to the workshop for a few hours this evening but made some progress (had to tack up a customers frame first to clear the jig).

    Seatstays done, angles refer to s/stay relative to dropout and s/stay ST

    Looking like a bicycle frame!

    Stoked on the TT, ST, SS junction, think it’s gonna look sweet filletted up.
    All mitres freestyle hand cut (except for CSs- BB and dropout slots). Partly due to necessity - tubing profiles and tooling, partly because it’s a labor of love, a chance to do things differently and challenge myself.

    Liking that wishbone/yoke assembly. Not seen it done that way before but looks neat. How was it to fit up?

    In the range 120-140. It will initially be 130. I ride a reasonably aggressive position on the road and only do mass start races on the track, maybe a few crits on it too. I designed the geometry so that I could replicate my road position but still have a lot of room to move forward on the bike.

    I’ll take the selection box to the track and experiment then, when I’m happy might make a steel bar stem combo
