    Thanks, it really does.

    Im starting with the componentes for the bicycle.

    Im going to use a profile rim on the front instead the one it has now, so I have designed the front hub. I have to cut the axle, because its too long.

    There is a fine line between trying to exhibit your work in such a way that it does not get stolen, and obnoxiously plastering your water mark over your work in an extremely distracting way.

    Thanks. Yes, I was inspired by one of the Rooke models.

    Here you have new images with the wheels almost finished and the dropouts:

    What's your thinking about how the rear wheel is driven on the chopper? Friction drive with a rubber snubber hidden in the drum/2nd bottom bracket?

    No, it would be a second belt from the 2nd bottom bracket to the left side of the rear wheel.

    Inside the 2nd BB box there is a Rohloff, so it would have two cogs; one in the normal position and the 2nd one instead the brake disc fixed with 4 bolts to the Rohloff cage.

    Well, I have decided to remove the rotors because I think that the best way to stop the bike is mounting a small rotor in the left side of the gear box, next to the cog.

    I have also changed the colour of the paint to match better with the style (red wheels and white tire side).

    From now, Im going to start modelling componentes for my next project, so Im not going to post too much untill I start with the frame.

    Greetings from The Netherlands.

    Hi again.

    This week I have been working in a new bicycle: a hardtail titanium 29er.

    This is how its going.

    - BB30.
    - Black Cat dropouts.
    - Chris King hubs (I have to put the rear one in its place).
    - ZTR Crest rims.
    - Easton EC70 bar and EC90 seatpost.
    - Thomson Elite X4 stem.
    - White Industries SS chainset.
    ....

    I have to model the brake set (probably Hope) and the chain and pedals.

    I hope you like it.

    Monday update.

    I have installed the end caps, the headset and the rear hub: its a Rolhoff Speedhub, in black, to match with the bike.

    I have to model again the rear spokes.

    I have changed the headtube and the seatposttube (because it had a colour difference) .

    When I have time, I will start with the brakes, but I have decided the model: Hope Tech X2.

    Me neither, but with Rhino its impossible.

    I think that with inventor its possible, but for the moment Im not going to try it.

    You need to check the chain lines on the Rohloff and White cranks. The White cranks are very narrow. Pauls would be a better fit IMHO.

    Good to know. Thanks. I have to model the Paul crankset, but for the moment, I have almost finished the bike.

    Not to nit pick but White cranks are not out board bearing cranks. Also would be nice to see how you worked out the shifting and cable routing of the Speed hub.

    I know that, but I like the touch of the bearings cups in mango. I have to look for a nice crankset for this kind of BB set.

    The shifting is using a Tune Rolf and the cable routing is going to internal through the down tube to the BB and from there, folowing the left chainstay using cable stops designed by me.

    Its going to be a bolt attached to the frame, but the head of the bolt has two cable stops one over the other one, so if you want to use the bicycle as a SS you can remove this cable stops.

    Well, although I have to finish some details, Im going to leave this project in stand-by.

    But first, I have rendered a few images.

    Hi. As a request from a guy in the foromtb.com, I have changed the decoration of the bicycle, including paintjob and components.

    Im also learning how to model more complex surfaces by doing a new saddle for my fixies.

    Well, today I have modelled the saddle (San Marco Aspide), installed the rear wheel, the handlebar and the saddle. I have to finish the stem, and start with the drive train.

    Im thinking in modifying the rear end to make it thicker and stronger, because compared to the fork, it looks very weak.

    For the front wheel, Im not sure, but I have to decide between a 4 spoke Corima, and Aerospoke or a traditional wheel with the front Chub Hub, and the H Plus Son Eero rim.

    I have tried different things to get the way to do it. Its pretty easy but you have to follow some steps.

    I have finished the front wheel: Chub + HPlusSon, like in the rear wheel, but with 24 spokes in radial configuration instead 32 spokes with 2 crosses.

    I have also decorate the saddle a bit more with the name of the model (AspideTT).

    This is an assignment for a Spanish framebuilder (XCLUSIVE bikes).

    I have modelled 4 frames to show to the customers the virtual results of the building.

    First of all I wanna show you the Titanium CX Frame:

    From a titanium block with a CNC machine, I guess.

    The framebuilder is making some prototypes in a 3D printer to check if everything is OK with the parts, and Im designing some new parts for him.
