Really rough shop of a Druid with an attempt to match lines:

A Pivot-Esque Organic top tube shape with lines matched to rear swing arm.

Next frame will have the angles line up. I've also tweaked it so the shock angle is also going to be parallel to the toptube.

Props for being a designer/builder.

I think the first iteration of your bike looks like a gate. It would be good for bikepacking though with all the space in the front triangle!

Technically the 3rd iteration not the first.

1st iteration built in the fall of 2014.

NPC144 - 63ha. 75.5sa. 465mm reach. 440mm chainstays. 1260mm wheelbase. 327mm bb height. 160mm fork. 144mm rear travel. Suspension is progressive with a LR from 3.05 to 1.78. Shock is a Super Deluxe 230x65.
2nd iteration built mid summer of 2018.

The gate posted by sherbert was built in early summer of 2019.

Currently working on the version shown in the cad file. It's been lots of learning.

I too commend you on actually designing and building your own bikes.

It's not just the building part though..it's actually caring what it looks like and taking the time to understand what is visually appealing to most people.

There are a lot of builders out there that could give a rat's ass about what people think of their bikes.

would be alot better if they just let the seattube connect to the bb. i see the link is there but im sure they could have moved the link back a bit and made it work

I like that it isn't a alloy clone of the Revel products. It certainly still looks like a Canfield.

Unfortunately the packaging of the CBF system hasn't really improved much. Thats where Revel got it right.
