    builder details

    the frame, fork , h-bar and s-post are all done through Gene Spicer .... Gene does a lot personally with steel and Alu. but does not "do Ti" per se ... he farms it off to a major aerospace Ti builder in China ( Xian Changda)... build quality is very nice and Gene stands behind the entire package .... really a good guy you'll see if you search the forums.

    I worked the geometry and cable guide specifics out via email ... one initial drawing from me which was laid up into a cad drawing to detail all elements ...

    call me crazy, but I like it! is the front of the rear fender attached to the seat tube or just snugged against it?

    its snugged

    I cut a rounded bevel cut into the front of the rear fender and then I simply eased off on the radius of the bend ... this places the front of the fender snugly up againt the seat tube with pressure from "wanting" to flex straight ...

    make sense?
