    Here are a few pictures of my "Freddie" MTB I made in the late 90's. I started building bikes with Freddie in 92-98 we made around 100 bikes mostly road frames for local racers.

    I made this frame from Ritchey Logic tube set. It had Campagnolo Record OR components and a Manitou3 fork when it was made. A couple years later I sold the Manitou and made this fork and started using the stem pictured here. I just replaced the Campy headset with a King, built the front wheel and added posts for the caliper on the fork for disk brakes. Next I am working on a front suspension like the Look Fournales or Proflex.

    It ain't Mountain

    I know it's not mountain, but I built it and it's fun to cruise.

    I have been meaning to post up my bike for a while now. I think I have enough posts to do it

    It is Fillet Brazed Columbus Zona.
    26" Wheels.
    69* Headangle.
    595mm ETT. (665 Front Centre)
    400mm CS
    120mm Reba Fork
    XT Gruppo

    (I didnt get the cable routing right on this one, but I learnt a lot, and the next frame I made, was very similar, but with a 44mm headtube and good cable routing for a 1x10 drivetrain)

    My new single speed 29er setup for gravel grinding.

    It is very similar to my other bike. 29er with short chainstays and running single speed. Heres a photo of it setup with a rigid fork, crazy 48/22 gear ratio, and some dust after a gravel grinding ride.

    That looks great! What's the geometry? That tire is CLOSE to the seat tube!

    Thanks Walt!

    The angle of the photo makes the gap look a little bit tighter than it really is. I am running a half link and in the photo the sliders are slammed. It's tight but clearance is good with 2.1 tire and 48 tooth ring.

    The geometry is typical "race inspired" 29er with 71/73 angles and 60mm of BB drop. Effective top tube is 598; Front center is 649. Chainstay length is 434 with the sliders all the way forward.

    Really nice. Did you use a seatube lug/sleeve? Looks like seat stays attach to top tube.

    Great job.


    I was referring to Toby-g's blue 29 er at top of the page. Sorry for misplaced post

    I figured I would make my 1st post here one of my Carbon test bike that I built last winter. It has done very well, and far exceeded all my expectations this year. It is a hand laid carbon frame with Aluminum inserts for the headtube and bottom bracket.

    Yes, I used a sleeve, and attached the seat stays to the TT; well they intersect both the ST and TT, in order to get the clearance I wanted for 2.4 tyres. Don't ask how I did the mitre, it was done by hand, and only took about 2 hours ( for the right side, then used a mirrored template for the left).

    Well done Toby. I like that you saw and worked through this problem and come up with a clever solution, stylish too.

    If I don't make an attempt, how will I know if it will work?

    Here is the MTB I built myself this spring. I did some geometry experimentation with it, and while I will change some things on the next one, It is a ton of fun:



    I built it for a SS race I did along side the Sklar Bikes Factory Team. It's way less cool now and has ten whole gears.

    And then I built myself this cross rig at the end of the summer to race in the fall. I like cross a lot and I like this bike too. Also good for shoulder season training rides.

    Just finished this rad little Hardtail, with 26" wheels

    funny story: my sister was looking for a new MTB, but all the big brands now no longer do 26" hardtails, (*with a decent spec, they do have a couple, but usually in the <300 range). So she decided to go custom, I had a lot of fun doing the road bike for her earlier in the year, as getting the fit right was a good challenge, so was happy to oblige with the MTB. Budget was tight, so a lot of Workshop spare and old parts were used. I future proofed the thing with internal cable for a dropper post, which she intends to purchase once she had recovered from the big hole in the wallet the frame burned.
