    Straight Lines

    I'm gonna tack it up, try a set of cranks ( make sure 15'' stays are clear ), see how big of a tire fits, and NAIL IT !!

    i love the single top tube and not the split top tube like you see on some other bikes....so if this rides as good as most think that it will then would you be making a couple of these frames?!?

    Thanks, glad your diggin it.
    Here are 2 more pics I did'nt get up yesterday. One of the stay length, the center of the socket head screw is the center of the BB control on the jig, with the Cru's jammed forward. Truly 15 ''.
    The other is one with the kinked seat tube not hidden by the BB control.
    I will post pic's of it out of the jig, with wheels next.
    RTW.

    Now you need to engrave the yoke, have the mtbr logo stamped on sheet metal, weld it on. Then off to paint it goes! Man, I'd pay just to try that thing in a parking lot.

    Seat tube, the part you insert your seat in. You're talking about the seat STAYS which are the upper tubes that go from the seat tube to the dropouts

    I'm planning on it, very interesting stuff. I'm going to full weld it Saturday morning while listening to Chimaira's Impossibility of Reason CD. I will post pic's, and slap some wheels on it.

    So are you putting a brace connecting top tube and seattube ("lets do some lines" thread for suggestions) ?
