I am so stoked about this. Really looking forward to seeing it come together.

I just stopped in to drag the average on this forum down a little, way too much nice stuff being posted recently. I really can't believe the shit I get up to sometimes.

Anyway, happy "machining" Wink

That is some solid fixturing my friend. If it works it works.

it actually seems to have worked better than I would have imagined. If it’s a little off center, I’ll just tell people it’s that way to work with the oval chainring.

bigquotesHey soywater did you give up on the youtubes?

Nope, we’re still doing it. Slowly. My buddy that does all the editing has been busy with real shit lately. We’re actually in progress of condensing several months of footage and failure into a couple episodes, get caught up to June at least. This frame is really starting to look like something and you guys are still languishing in seat post jail...poor guy, he’s trying to dig out out the backlog and I just dumped another 4+ hours of footage on him. We’re going to have something real soon.

Hey everyone, I need some information on the Q factor to ensure my chain stays don't interfere with my crank arms or anything like that. Does anyone have some charts with different Q factor information or can anyone provide me with that information?
Thank you

SRAMs frame fit specs are real handy for that sort of thing!

Hi, I'm thinking about welding a simple steel hard tail as my first homemade bike. I was wondering what people use for welding. I did some research and it seems like tig welders are the norm. Is there a cheaper alternative?

I would probably look into brazing in your case then. Not any easier to learn, but the equipment will be quite a bit less expensive (even tho the consumables will be more expensive). Makes for nicer looking frames as well i think.

But maybe i got it all wrong because I don't have much experience with either.

Ok thanks. I'll look in to that.

A well braised frame will go a long way as long as you don't punish it too much.

Frame done!
Needs a longer stem and bar tape, spds, and to sort the brake

Fixed gear

54 tt 58 St
73 HA 75 SA
390 CS length

Very engaging ride

This looks like a blast and an absolute death trap at the same time!

Love the build and the thru axel. Is there enough tension to run a good fixed setup or are your running it single speed?

Death trap sounds about right!
Thanks! The BB has 16mm of adjustment but I think I need to torque it down a bit more. Might have to get the retainer out. No way to run anything other than fixed.
