    My rides

    Built me a couple of SS a 29er and a 26er, they were fillet brazed on a breadbord type table of True Temper tubing, on my 29er I used Pauls dropouts that I added discmount made of 304 stainless and so far it works well, I try to split ride time between the two but for some reason the 29er get used more, thanks for looking.

    Some of these bikes look (and, no doubt, ride) way better than many of the factory machines rolling around. Congratulations, all!

    That Disc Brake mount is slick - I like the smooth combo of the paul's dropouts and the adjustable caliper deal.

    Here's a couple of my bikes-
    My road bike was built in '95 using Henry James lugs and is a mix of 653/531/731OS- it's a sweet riding bike and still rides great.

    The suspension bike is my own open source design. There's a web page I set up here:

    When this damn UPS truck arrives, I might finally be able to contribute to this thread.

    (ps: If you want to make yourself lots of new bikes, don't have children.)

    this is my first attempt at a full suspension bike. all made from 3al 2.5v 18g wall, rear dropouts 5mm carbonfibre bonded to frame, cable guides in carbon fibre riveted and bonded. still a work in progress but rides very nicely. 83mm DH bottom bracket my only mistake.caused some unnecessary chain line issues

    Are you still in New England or have you moved your operations elsewhere?

    Finally, I have a new MTB.

    Steel - yes.
    Wheels - 29er.
    Weight - who cares
    Cost - is all in the wheels
    Value - How can you beat XT cranks for 200 bucks.
    Inapproriate - Rampage tyre. Not Australia friendly.
    MIA - Needs a brown saddle, probably.

    I hope your happy, that bike is now my background picture. Absolutely AMAZING!
    I wouldnt even paint the frame, just throw some clear coat on it

    That Thylacine looks so right that it's frightening. Love it.

    Thanks Vlad. I can't get over how nice constant diameter seat and chainstays are. This frame is even stiffer than the Scandium I was toying with a few years ago, yet still has that nice steel ride.

    Now I just have to find some double butted versions so I can start getting the weight down a bit.

    The rear is plain guage, the seat tube is from Eco [double bulge butted] and the top and down tubes are OX platinum.
