So after years of lurking and many months gathering everything needed, my adventure as finally started!
First off; sorry for the frenh title. Reason is, I like how some users have distinct thread title for their builds. Being french Canadian, I figured this could be my "trademark" (and also excuse all my spelling errors!). Hopefully, my build are interesting to some.
Second, sorry also as this is not a full on mountain bike... Moderators, feel free to delete is you feel this is irrelevant to this forum. This whole frame building adventure has been with the ultimate goal to build mountain bikes. Hopefully, my thead will be helpful or interesting to some.
This frame is meant to be a 26er based touring bike. I kept it simple stupid and cheap for sake of learning. Classic design and geometry. Straight CS and SS. It will be assembled with components stripped from my old mtbike and the spare parts bin.
The geometry is as followed:
HT: NOV_COHT - OD 37.0 - Wall 1.6
TT: RC2DT - OD 28.6 - .9/.6/.9
DT: HVER01 - OD 31.8 - .8/.5/.8
ST: SALST1 - OD 28.6 - .9/.6/1.22 external butted
CS: HOXRCCS - 20x28 oval tapered to 12.7 straight
SS: HOX2SS - OD 19 tapered to 12.7 straight
Overall, things have been going slowly but surely. All the main tubes and bridges are brazed. Now I need to clean the fillets, check the straightness of my work (or lack there of!) and cold set accordingly, braze the brake bosses on the SS, silver braze all the small braze on and get all the reaming and facing done at my LBS. So still many hours in the shop left!
Here are some pics. Comment and constructive criticism wanted.
More updates as the build continues!
