I've been snooping around here for a while now, so I figured it was time to contribute something. My name is Adam, I'm in college right now, spending most of my free time either riding bikes (skis now!) or building them. I like following other people's builds, so hopefully you like following mine.
I'm normally a mountain biker, but my school doesn't seem to be too into that. this frame is going to be a cyclocross bike that I will be racing this spring for the collegiate road season, and then in the fall for cyclocross. It should be fun.
Here's where I'm at so far:
I'm going to do a fancy seat tube sleeve on this one. Should be fun.
I decided to do a full size drawing for this one, after realizing that my previous frames weren't exactly how I inteded for them to be. This is a lot more work that I thought it was, but should be helpful.
And here's a whole pile of parts that I spent all of my money on:
I'm also going to try to use a couple of heat treated tubes on this one. I have some true temper stuff on the way from Henry James, Hopefully that's not too hard to work with. And when it's done I plan on having this be my first frame to actually get "finished" so I think I'll have it powder coated. Exciting stuff.
I'm really looking forward to getting to work on this frame, and getting to ride on it. I'll keep this thread updated as stuff happens.
