Thanks guys, I have looked around before asking I just thought I'd ask before commiting to a hanger.

This is probably the one I'll use as fitment is very easy to machine for location.

Or just make my own like it.


I was toying with using the Syntace X-12

They are even nice enough to have SW files for download.

Back to Solidworks for a bit I think.

Thanks again,

Does anyone know if I could get a super light BB shell for a carbon frame anywhere off the shelf? Ive been getting Ti/Alu ones full thickness and turning them down but its too much hassle, need to streamline things and minimise weight!!
thanks v much

If you know the dimensions you could always order some polished tubing. Then all you would have to do is cut the desired width and face both sides to finish.

Yeah but Id need to cut threads / get an intereference fit depending on BB type on it too so its just back to more turning and the likes. Just on the off-chance anyone knew of them.

Well good work. Your frames are looking great, and I can see why people are coming to you and asking for them.

cheers dude, got nothin on you tho...my frames are startin to get pretty good, but those bendy top-tubed hardtails you make are nothing short of stunning. your frames are far and away the highest quality that has ever been on this thread me thinks. you should put more pics up! makes me feel a lil stalkerish hunting thru your profile lookin for pics of frames haha Wink

Started building a frame jig today. It will take a little longer to set up than an upright jig, but this one cost me pretty much nothing and will work good for the first few frames.

Hi guys!

I'm designing a steel mini-downhill frame, 180mm travel, 26", very short chainstay and 30mm of rearward travel. I still have the idler pulley system to design and I will start to build.
