    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

    Yeah it’s been steep but satisfying and quite an adventure

    Pleasure, I'm thinking to work on it on the weekend. Seatstay cutting, final fit up, tacking and brazing on Saturday, filing on Sunday and squeeze in the finishing work next week
