What is the purpose of the weld at the top of the seattube?

Cheers, It's the seat tube collar I machined to fit 30.9 seat post. It slots into the 35mmx.09mm seat tube

Does anyone have drawings of the pinion gearbox and the bridge? I'd like to build a frame for one but my google fu is weak.

I would bet if you emailed them nicely they would send you control drawings

In the side view, middle top, there is a line intersection labeled "bottom bracket axis" that is dimensioned. I assumed that would be the crank axle center, although, I haven't verified it.

Love it!

Could you please tell us more, such as:

• What led you to creating your own bikes
• The specific design goals of this build
• How it turned out
• What you learned or would do differently
• Future projects

Thanks!

• What led you to creating your own bikes = broke 9 frames in 5 years
• The specific design goals of this build = a do it all bike all from park days to hole days out
• How it turned out = Woorks good so far 600 kilomters on it
• What you learned or would do differently =Thinner tubing for the rear frame would work i think
• Future projects = now im doing a front triangle for a bike to my kid

Thanks!

And happy that you like it here is a vid from this summer when testing it Smile

Thanks!

Not many kids have a custom frame! Just be sure a water bottle fits inside the main triangle or you'll never hear the end of it - or maybe that's just the Pinkbike comments Wink

How long will the down tube last having to react the shock load which is acting near on perpendicular in the middle of an unsupported tube, OR have you massively overbuilt it with huge wall thickness which means it’s overly heavy?

Good work getting the frame together Dan, but to me that design just shouts compliance and/or failure... I’d like to be proven wrong though... Smile
