    If you somehow managed to mount that brake caliper in the little triangle (maybe enlarge the triangle a little), that would be a really cool feature.

    Nice frame!

    I absolutely love this bike. Do you do production bikes? Can we talk about a custom frame for me?

    That frame in inventor is sick. I wish I had the inventor or solidworks skills to do something like that. Lately I've been thinking about designing a frame but I'm not sure how to draw some of the more complex parts in inventor or solidworks.

    A new one

    I get to post again because I built a new bike for myself. Very fun - 27#, 6" travel 29er. It's acceptable when going uphill, mostly thanks to the RP23 and a TALAS fork that drops down by 25mm, and it's very close to a full DH bike when you're headed down.

    My new favorite ride. I still need to put a better chainguide on, as well as (obviously) powdercoating it, but I have about 100 miles on singletrack on it at this point, and I'm pretty much ecstatic.

    Nice seat, Walt.



    Have you ever worked with anything other than the Ventana rear ends for FS bikes?

    Walt, looking at your fully 29er I'm guessing you are a beanpole like myself.

    Kinda

    I'm 5'11", 145-150 pounds (depending on how much beer I've had) and have a 36" inseam, so yes, I am very weirdly proportioned. When I rode for Schwinn in the late 90s, I used to have to get the XL frame to get the saddle high enough, but put a ~50mm stem on to make the cockpit short enough. Hilarious.

    It actually took me a while to get used to bikes that actually fit me when I started building them, because I was so used to super-long wheelbases and super-short stems.

    Ha, you've definitely got really long legs even for a shorty!

    I'm 6" taller yet my freakishly long legs are only 2" longer.

    I just thought of something, with stable platform shocks, they would be even better.

    i left the company in 2000,, so had no further input into it's development,

    it was a great bike , but very ugly i still have two , i run one as either a single speed or a alfine and with the special dropouts on the bike it allows you to have a qr setup on the alfine

    if it had been developed I think it was prime for a carbon frame fork it could have had a more pleasing shape and lost some weight
    and as you say modern shock technology would have improved what was already a great bike

    I would really like to pick up a PRST-4. I want one that is crack and dent free. The paint can look like crap, because I will polish it. What kind of hubs can you use? Are parts available?

    the adaptors for the dropouts are designed for any 9mm axle qr hub

    I have a prst 1 and a prst 4

    the 4 is my SS or alfine bike

    it also runs a 24" front wheel to get some more weight on the front end ,



    if you want one keep an eye out on ebay uk they come up regularly at a good price

    Just one more ? I see you cut down the steerer tube. But, couldn't you run a 0 degree stem instead of the 24" wheel, to get the front height down?

    no the top link will hit the stem/bars ,, i think it felt sharper with the high angle rise stem rather than a long steerer and zero stem

    29er Truss downtube... Prototype...

    Well thanks to this forum I have been building on my knowledge for some time now.
    This is my Bike, Haven't got a name for it yet.
    I have designed it as a All mountain Single Speed sort of bike, if that makes any sense.
    I jump it as you can see by the low seat, I race XC and Enduro, and I plan on trying to race some downhill on it. I feels very capable but I have not ridden heaps of bikes.
    I made a mistake of making it probably 25mm too short as you can see by the seat all the way back.
    CrMo Tig welded.
    But I am happy, just trying to source some Ti to build the proper one.
    HA 70'
    SA 73' (effective)
    CS 420mm
    TT 583mm (effective)
    BB 295mm

    First Frame; PBL 001

    Here's my first frame built at UBI in February of this year.

    First the front yard shot, then some in its natural habitat.

    Portland. I few years ago I set a personal goal of building my own frame by/for my 30th birthday. At the time there was only the Ashland campus and I didn't know how I'd swing the overall costs. Then the Portland campus opened and, after a while, added a winter brazing class that ended the day before the big 3-0. My commute to UBI was shorter than my commute to work! It worked out wonderfully and the bike is awesome. It was a great experience!

    My own bike

    Here's the latest bike I built myself.



    It's not painted yet because I don't know how I want it.

    But it handles great! Might have to build a custom stem a little longer and higher than the blah C'dale.

    And yes, the cranks are cook bros.

    Here's my 26er after a year of riding. Still haven't broke it yet. I dropped the big ring for a bash, did some mild graphics, and changed out the stem for a 110.
