Thank you for the feedback.
The pegs are hand made because of the small quantity.
The price was 75 Euros/pair, shipping included.
If you are interested, send me a private message.
But I think that, by respect for the original purchaser, I'll certainly change few details...

Have a look to the following topic :

http://www.global-flat.com/smf/index.php?topic=46844.0 (http://www.global-flat.com/smf/index.php?topic=46844.0)

I can make any kind of pegs, just give me your desired specifications, and I'll make your dream pegs come true. But of course, the process will be longer, so you have to be patient.

They will just look how you want them.
PiR only makes custom products...

I'll make new ones soon, with some new dropouts :

I think you'd be surprised as to how much it would come down to if you asked Malo to make you a double diamond frame.(as simple as it gets)
Maybe post your design and ask for fellow americans whether they want the same (or come to an consensus designwise) and ask Malo to make a batch.
This way you can get a quatity discount and you can divide the shipping.

This might be a very good idea TJ. From what I understand, The specs you ride or would have a frame designed around, would go over well with many riders. Plus a frame that would handle your riding as well as meet your approval, (As Im sure you would have every little detail well thought out) would probably net several buyers.

Malo, if this is an option, or idea you would consider, how many frames would it take on a pre-order before a quantity discount would take affect?
Title: Re: PiR products part(s) gallery
Post by: bhaverchuck on May 07, 2011, 05:14:59 PM
I would jump in on a group buy. Current budget doesn't allow for a frame over the 500.00 plus range but judging from the pics and communication already recieved from PiR I wouldn't hesitate to purchase a frame from PiR.

Post by: 2flat2furious on May 07, 2011, 09:40:33 PM
Part of the problem is shipping. Even if I got it down to around 350-400, its going to cost an arm and a leg to ship.
Title: Re: PiR products part(s) gallery
Post by: bhaverchuck on May 07, 2011, 10:00:36 PM
Shipping shouldn't more than 60.00 for a frame according to my experiences of shipping frames via USPS International Priority. Perhaps a batch of 10 pre-sold could get the price down. You think it wouldn't be that demanding to get a simple doubl-diamond frame that has front-end gussets with modern flatland geometry here in the States.
Title: Re: PiR products part(s) gallery
Post by: schneider on May 08, 2011, 06:13:17 PM
the problem is that you have to find a way tp avoid custom fees, shipping from usa to france is not that cheap, i bought a bass from usa a few years ago and it cost me like 175 euros of customs fees. i don't know if it's the same the other way.

If the frames ordered are the same, I can make a discount if the quantity is more than 1.

The shipping for a frame from France to USA is 41 Euros ; for 2 frames, it's 61 Euros.

I don't exactly if the % of taxes is the same, but there's some tips to avoid to pay custom fees...

Thank you.
Those forks were special because the customer provided me a steer tube of a broken ABT forks, so I didn't have to make the steer tube or the top bolt, so the price was 80 Euros including painting.
A complete forks is around 120-150 Euros, in fact the same price as other forks in the european market.

I have to write a few words about these forks again.


Malo, I think those forks are one of the most beutiful parts you have ever made.
I have been thinking about them all day.

While they offer a clean and simple style of fork in terms of technology.
They have a shape which I find very pleasing to the eye.
To the point where I could imagine owning a pair not to ride, but just to look at (and i don't even ride zero offset lol)

But I honestly believe if these forks were mass produced by a large name brand in BMX, that in 20 or so years they would become a truly iconic collectors piece.

You really have outdone yourself this time.

Kamil,

I'll be fair with you.

You probably think you are the inventor of what you call the "Chimera full tubing system" or something like that ?

The answer is : NO, you aren't

If you had more knowledge concerning frame building, you should know that.

Please try to begin to be smarter...

It was a very rude answer to one simple question. So you use the same system. And I know what you mean, but no one use it in bmx frames like we did.

Post by: byke on June 29, 2011, 09:10:35 PM
Actually I know of many companies who have used lug piercing such as basic bikes.
Eitherway, regardless of this method .... What it all comes down to is the finished product meeting the expectations of the customers requests.

It's definitely a lovely looking frame, fork and bar.
Congrats Malo.

I think this "method" is easier, especially for head tube with a big radius and it works well.

A new bar stem combo (the "burr" stem combo, in reference to the burr puzzle) is scheduled and will simply be the best bar stem combo ever made from an ergonomic and aesthetic point of view.

Stay tuned...

No, the Yoru looks like that :

The last frame shown (this one) :

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v631/malovelo/DtouragecadreRizal3.jpg)
is more like my personnal frame,

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v631/malovelo/DtouragecadreMalo.jpg)
The difference with Yoru frame are :

-the dropouts
-the rear tubes are swaged
-complex wishbone and bridge
-integrated seat post clamp
-different seat stays/seat tube connexion.

Here's the last street custom frame for Clment Baes with the following specifications :

-TT =  21"
 -CS = 13.5"
 -HA = 75
 -SA = 71
 -standover 8.6"
 -Wishbone on chainstays
 -dropouts for female hub
-Spanish BB
 -BB height = 295mm
 -Integrated pivotal seat tube
 -Gussets for top & down tubes
 -Weigth: 2050 g

Here are some "spy pics" of the "Burr stem" combo.
I keep the concept secret (patent pending).
This one is for me. It takes as long as making a frame...
I'm already thinking to a simplified version...

Wow, sweet frame Malo, congratulations once again.


I wish you'd make like a batch of these frames so they could be cheaper. 


BTW what is the chain stays length at its maximum, 12.9", 13.something?


cheers


Alex
Title: Re: PiR products part(s) gallery
Post by: Malo on October 11, 2011, 08:14:11 PM
Thank you Alex,

concerning the CS length, I use the following method :

the customer tells me his desired CS.
I asked him his gear ratio.
I calculate the closest value of the desired CS, according to his gear ratio.
This value+2 mm (chain stretching) gives me the CS maximum.
And my dropouts are designed so that you can move your wheel 9 mm forward.

To answer your question, for this frame :

CS min. : 12.4"
CS max. : 12.77"

First, it's not a catalog's product, but a single exemplar, with different specifications.

Instead of asking what would Ares say about this copy, rather ask yourself if the Suparna is an "original" design or a copy of something older ?

Almost 20 years ago this kind of combo already existed :

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v631/malovelo/bad_bars2-1.jpg)

Why ? Because it's simply the most simple shape you can have, from a drawing and building point of views...

PiR recently suffured of a sad misadventure.
My welder had the tendon of one of this finger cutted.
So he wasn't able to weld anything.
It happened few weeks ago.
Now he can weld again, but there's a lot of late concerning the orders.
Things slowly become normal again, but it really was a hard time for PiR.

Another thing is that the website is down. A new one will be available soon...

Anyway, here are the latest news :

Few months ago, I created a topic concerning the restoration and the modification of a Skyway TA frame.
Unfortunately I had to delete it because the customer didn't want to show it until it was finished.
Now that it's finished (almost) I have the permission to share with you the result.

Personnaly I had to modify the frame, so that the original frame (in red), becomes the white frame in the following picture.

This is a very special fork, for me.
The fork is very narrow because I use 1.35" Comet tire.
It has a long integrated aluminum headset race to make the fork higher than the usual 12.5" (measured from axle to lower race). In fact it has the same result than a headset slacker...
190 mm long externally machined steer tube.
The legs are almost not pressed because I use the new Flatware Vandero hub so the distance between the flanges is shorter.
The lower extremity of the steer tube has been made to match the wishbone of my frame (second picture).
0.190" thick female dropouts
Weigth : 840 g

what do you have to say about certain riders in top level that copy each other?
gomez,yamar,osicka,mathias,raphael?
all have been copied by others...
if a company that is making a frame like those that are custom it is not a copy because you might need to change something or some details.

Malo did a great job of finding the right numbers for the job. They looked pretty funny but felt just like a pair of street bars on a full offset stem. I'm pretty sure no flat company in there right mind would ever make bars like that for production... Wouter is just a silly kid that likes to stir up drama. I had Malo do them like the Ares bar because I was riding that Ares at that time; I thought it would look good, I was wrong, lol. But yes, everyone copies everyone, if they didn't, no one would ever get anywhere. Imitation is the most sincere form of "flattery", pun intended.
As I looked back on this thread, Malo, your work has really grown and gotten even better than it was. So well done, such attention to detail, so perfect for each custom project. Thanks for giving the picky flat community specs and details we each love.

Being a student going for my mechanical engineering degree, i just had to start from page 1 and look at all the amazing things you fab up, i also learned some stuff about flatland fabrication and what you can do with the frames and forks etc, just from looking at your pics in this thread, so thank you for that.. screw the nay sayers, they're just mad cause they cant make or afford what you offer.. your work is better than the big dogs in bmx who've pretty much all outsourced for obvious reasons, but it's also reflects in the quality of the part.. You dont get that with what you're doing, you just get bad ass custom parts that have attention to detail and nothing looked over.

that being said, if i am ever in the market for a new frame or fork or bar i know who i am comming too, ive always liked swiss misses, i might have to try a set of my own but to my specs when i get tired of mine.. until then, i will just sit back and let the sexy ass fab work roll in.  ;D

that they do! aaron's gotten a lot better with the quality of his stuff too (he offers supertherm tubing now).. ive been to his old shop a few times.

i would still rather buy a frame from PIR though, he has more attention to detail. and i know its not hard to make a flatland frame, but aaron really only does freestyle stuff..

The only PiR frame Ive ran into personally was super light and the tubes were a little thicker than aluminum foil. Is it possible when ordering to get heavier and thicker tubes? If I were paying for something custom Id want it to be bomb proof.

I really think that the burr stem combo is from an ergonomic and aesthetical point of view, the best bar stem combo you can use.
The problem is that it's very complex to do and takes too much time. In fact it takes so much time that I'm afraid that this one was the last one I made, until I found an easiest way to reach the same result.
It takes almost as time as to make 2 frames !
I only sold this one for 150 Euros, because the customer who ordered it is a very good customer (and friend) and I always minimize the amount of work, especially when it's really the first time I make a product for a customer. And usually the first person who order a new product has a vey good price.

I prefer to not show the wedges/clamping system for the moment, because everything is not 100% finish from a patent point of view, but when you'll see it, you'll understand the simplicity, but also the ingenuity.

Thanks a lot, it's because I reflected for a long time how things could be improved. But for now, I don't have time enough (because of the orders) to try all the things I have in my mind...

Thanks TJ, trust me that if I could lowered my price I would do it, but the trend is not this way, because of the price of the material that doesn't stop to increase...

I understand your point of view. Of course it's possible when you place an order to choose the diameters and thickness of the tubes used. I personnaly try to integrate when the kind of tubes are choosen if the rider is heavy/ligth, smooth/brutal or if he's a parts breaker...Each frame is made specificaly and I won't make the same frame for 2 different riders, if I consider they are different from the previously named parameters.

I know each frame varies, but just the average....  ([url]http://www.global-flat.com/smf/Smileys/default/grin.gif[/url])


The starting price for a simple double diamond raw (without paint) frame is 380 Euros + shipping.
The price for a custom color starts at 40 Euros (for a frame).
Depending the complexity and options, the price increase without really maximum, even if on average it's 450 Euros for a painted frame.
The most expensive frame I made was around 600 Euros (it was a friendly price compared to the time spent) raw and was exactly like my frame, except it didn't had any additionnal machining.

I'm working on a new frame I keep secret for a GF member that will be probably more epensive and lot of people will probably hate it (or love it ?), but what's sure is that it'll be VERY different...

Byke, when you have a chance can you please explain the headset system? -- looks very interesting.

Basically, since a head tube generally flares at each end its not possible to piece a tube as the connection wouldn't fit.

So The lower cup is built in to the head tube .... where as the upper cup is a press in (still a normal integrated headset)

really nice design. I feel this would have been a quamen classic, but Zenta never though about it....

Malo, you should really go into producing some alloy parts (stems, bar ends, sprockets and pegs)

Pretty cool design.


I'd say that's probably the worst possible place to lose weight though.  The part you machined away is were most forks bend assuming the legs hold.  I've bent plenty over about 30 years, trust me.


If anything, machine out the inside of the top of the headtube.  You could probably get by with it pretty thin, you've just got side impacts from the bars hitting the ground with very little weight on them.


If you absolutely have to do it at the bottom, do it on the inside so the larger outer diameter can help strengthen it.

OldYeller, please, I'm a calculator and FEM simulation teacher. I perfectly know where a part can be optimized and really don't need any advice, because it's just my job.
I really like to consider criticisms when they are constructive and recevable, but, seriously, you don't even know how thick the steerer is in the machined area...

I am intreged by the 100 mm rear spacing and special BB that would indicate this was for a crank less bike.
However the 9 x 9 drive has put a different perspective on this frame.

No matter what the reason for these specs, its a very intersting frame.

Love the look of the forks and the bars. I wish this was around when I was still seriously riding. On another note I looked up  FEM simulation and I just about curled up into the fetal position and started to cry.

No, it's for the japanese rider Gnter.
You can see his previous frame built up here :

I think that he removed the 2 lock bolts of the freecoaster and saved 10 mm (2 X 5) on the width...

The BB is the same as his previous frame and is intented to be used with some kind of plastic bottom bracket, but only the smaller part. I mean that the crank's axle is in contact with that plastic part only and that's all. He doesn't use the bigger part of the plastic BB anymore, so the OD of the BB can be decreased.
2 additionnal holes are located on the BB to put lubrificant easily...

Title: Re: PiR products part(s) gallery
Post by: byke on October 14, 2012, 04:16:18 PM
Ahhhhhh .....  I honestly thought it was a crankless frame and the holes the BB would be for locking pegs into the BB.
(and thus the reason for the 100mm front hub - rear spacing)

Very interesting size, and really nice to see a BB height that makes use of the offset of the front end length.

whoa, that last frame is beautiful... like a modernize tao or jps... luving it, except for the weight.
well.
This frame has more attention to strength and space.
1)the frame has not machined seatpost tube so it will not flex
2)the front tubes are 34.9 mm so bigger diameter than the normal/most frames today and are stronger
3)the down tube and gusset tube are 0.049'' thickness so they are much stronger..
4)this way i could easily lift the dt at the bb area a little bit without weakening the frame and make the top tube lower at the seatpost area without sacrificing much strength.
5)also the back end had a 0.049'' 32 mm wishbone and 7/8 0.049'' bridge tube.
the frame could be much lower of course without the brake mounts around 80 gr lower or less
so the first frame on the computer program was 1850 and it can get even lower without being weak,but i wanted to be super strong so i made it heavier..
i also made a handlebar from malo 2-3 months ago and i am very happy with it.
 so since my intrikat frame was long for me 19.5" i thought to make a new smaller and spacier frame with a front end like the tao..
thanks malo great work,i cant wait to ride it..

Very nice looking bar/stem combo! I am riding the Sequence 6th street bar/stem currently and have a question about the crossbar. Is it better to have the multi-piece crossbar vs just a straight tube one in terms of strength? Thanks!

From a strength point of view, a multi-piece crossbar can act like a spring and help to better absorb the loads.
Generally speaking, everything that makes something more elastic tends to make the part less prone to crack...but it's a bit more complex in the reality, of course.

so the first frame was 1850 and it can get even lower without being weak,but i wanted to be super strong so i made it heavier..
i also made a handlebar from malo 2-3 months ago and i am very happy with it.
 so since my intrikat frame was long for me 19.5" i thought to make a new smaller and spacier frame with a front end like the tao..
thanks malo great work,i cant wait to ride it..


thanks for the input, it's great being able to place a name to a real beauty of a frame.
all the best and post pixs!
cheers,kinde regards

Message received, will answer soon...

how good do the drawings of what you want have to be? i know what i want for bars and forks but im no good a technical drawings.


Most of the riders who place an order don't even draw a line. It always help me to start from a skecth or a rough drawing, but most of the time a detailled description is enough. The technical drawing is my job, so don't worry for that !
The making of the part only starts once the customer is 100 % satisfied by the drawing...


By the way, here's the bike check of Alain MAssabova (with his PiR custom frame), extract from the last ART :

In fact I have had some problems with the manufacturer of the rear tubes I use for my frames.
Four times in a row the swager did them wrong. He screwed up 400 tubes !
That's the reason why I haven't posted frames lately.
Now they are made and i'm supposed to receive them soon.
I think in the next couple of weeks, that modernized GT Show will be finished and I agree with you, it looks killer....

Hi Karl, that frame raw (without paint) for 24" wheels would cost 450 Euros (410 Euros with rear tubes like S&M Intrikat) + 30 Euros for mounts & tabs +50 Euros if painted or clearcoated.

Hi there,

I wanted to show you the first pics of a new flatland crank that will be tested in the next few months.
The design is inspired by the Cook Brothers crank made back in the day.

100 % CNC machined
Oversized 30 mm TA6V titanium axle with 27 mm hex. shape at the extremitys
7145-T6 aluminum crank arms
Q factor : 4
1 Bolt
157 mm long for the arms, but custom length will be available for a 140 mm / 195 mm range
No price yet, but because everything is made in France, they'll be pricey...

Hi Malo,

the PIR crankset is a great project.

Of course you know more than the rest of us about materials and resistance, but I wonder if there's any way the "head" of the crank arm is not so bulky, so that they are aesthetically more appealing, as at least to me the look a bit disproportionate they way the are now. Again I'm only saying this in terms of aesthetics.

The other thing that I want to ask you, is if you would consider using steel or titanium for smaller sprockets. The advantage that I see is that in this is that you could could further reduce the hexagonal diameter of axle in the outside part of the axle, without sacrificing strength.

Anyway, I look forward to hearing your thoughts about this

props on this work, as in any other things you have shown us.

Alex

In fact I didn't contribute to the design of that crank.
It's a french racer who work as a machinist who designed them.
You can see the first model made here :

http://oldschoolbmxfrance.com/forum23//viewtopic.php?f=3&t=8135&hilit=p%C3%A9dalier (http://oldschoolbmxfrance.com/forum23//viewtopic.php?f=3&t=8135&hilit=p%C3%A9dalier)

He contacted me, asking if I would agree to test it and I said yes, because I liked the aesthetical.

The purpose behind that design was to offer a very stiff and strong axle that's why it's 30 mm.
So the size of the spherical head is a consequence...
It's true that it's a bit big, but to my point of view it's not that big.

Developing that kind of products doesn't worth it from an economic point of view and only a very limited batch is scheduled, just for the fun...

It's true that using titanium or steel sprocket allow to reduce the size and thickness of the material used, but, once again, it's not my goal. Some big companies work on that since long time now and there's already a lot of nice designs available. Small companies can't afford to invest money in that kind of R&D...
Title: Re: PiR products part(s) gallery
Post by: kabirun on May 14, 2013, 08:32:53 PM
Ok I get it, but the steel sprocket idea came from the assumption that you will end up producing a sprocket for these cracks anyway...


please post price when you have an idea of the cost.



cheers,



Alex

It uses Spanish BB, but with different bearing stop, because the drive side needs 3 bearing and only 2 for the non drive side...
So it's not standard...
That has to be improved...

It looks a bit like the superpower because of the X shape, but in fact the frame is really different.
The 2 first top & down tube are totally connected together, to make the frame stronger than a traditionnal X shape. There's 4 tubes for the front triangle, compared to 3 for the superpower (1st gen.) or the KHE Equilibrium (if we ignore the gusset...).

Quote
What's the wall thickness at the "X" joint?


The 4 front tubes have different thicknesses, 0.035", 0.049" and 0.065".

Thanks, that frame was really complex to do, especially because of the platform...

Concerning the dropouts, personnaly I prefer them, compared to the huge dropouts mid school frames used to have. The customer designed the dropouts shape. They remind me the dropouts of the OG Kung Fu...

I have a very nice modernized Morales frame in the making. Stay tunned...

You can run a 18T up to 25 T sprocket with that frame. Probably less and more too, but not sure...

That toptube looks long

The TT is not particulary long with 19", but the rear end is very short at 12.5" centered, the BB is Euro so vey small, head tube is very short (90 mm long) and the stand over is close to 5". I think that those reasons makes the TT looks longer...

Dude  ??? I think you're way off here  ??? What Malo is doing is basically like paying tribute to the Great Companies that don't exist anymore and the riders of that era now have a chance to own something they already owned back in the day   ::)

Ask the family??  ??? Do you even know where the Original OG Bars were from???  :P I bet you don't cause if you did you would not have made a post  :)

It's a free game.. and the last patent I remember in Bmx was head tube side plate gussets and I believe that has expired  :beer:
Title: Re: PiR products part(s) gallery
Post by: PiR products on February 18, 2014, 10:27:34 AM
First I would like to note that I have only respect for Graveyard products. Everybody will consider these parts iconic because they were functionnal, high quality and innovative. I owned 1 of these handlebars something like 16 years ago. The price was just insane at around 300 US $ (I live in France), but you know "The quality remains long after the price is forgotten"...

There's a lot to say...

I'll try to explain my feelings, even if it's difficult for me to explain it in English.

I can only note that this shape of handlebar is one of the most copyied handlebar of the history. I remember brand new complete Trek or Specialized bikes with crapy OG replicas. 059brand also made an handlebar almost similar to the OG...
That statement concern a lot of handlebars. Swiss miss, escobar are just modernized replicas of older Brands.

By extension, we can consider 2 pieces bar as a particular shape, exactly like Graveyard is with his 8 pieces design. But unlike the OG, 2pcs handlebar is so evident that people don't ask themselves if it's an original design or not. However I don't think any brands pay royalties to the guy who first draw that kind of shape. Why ? Because 2 pieces design is the most simple and economic way to make handlebars.

As a designer, I have a very different point of view and philosophy when it comes to design products. For me it's just steel tubes welded together.
According to me, the KGB sarvet is just an OG replicas with unparrallel lower tubes. London dagmar have a Graveyard shape without the capped extremitys.
We the people Franck Lukas is based on the same design, but with bend grip tubes and crossbar. It's the same for the neo control with different connexion between support tubes and lower tubes. Quamen Ocho grande and so on..I could continue and add tons of other handlebars almost similar to the OG.

Unlike these other brands, I'll always mention from where the inspiration comes from. When I say "Graveyard OG replica", it just means that the overall shape of the original product has been used, even if the final product don't have exactly the same shape, the same specs or the same weight. It's more like a tribute than a real copy.

As you know, I only make custom parts, according to the customer whishes. I sold 13 handlebars last year. More and more people ask me replicas because they can't find what they want in the actual market. I think that from a "freedom" point of view it's good that people like me offer any kind of design and even replicas. I'll never claim that it's original, just a replica.

I haven't tried to contact the family of the original designer because I simply don't know them but I think she would just be honored seing that timeless design being used after so many years.
That clearly show that this design is really appreciated.

I understand your reaction. You probably liked that brand a lot and you consider it's bad that people make replicas, like a disrespect.
But you could also change your mind and see the other side.

(Thank you azflatlander)

Like i said previously- fan of your works/ products in general, no disrespect to you or anyone was intented. My angle is from a concern member of gflat - i don't need or want to read another 10 page derailment of a thread.

I'm going to delete my previous post as i can see that happening, not intentionally on my part, but with dill-hole response from azflatlander, I've no wish to escalate a topic which is not mine to argue in the first place.

usd $1800 for orginal o.g. Graveyard bars in Europe? That's insanity, much like the $800 asking price on eprey for Shimano DX pedals. Well if anyone is keen, I've 2...he, he.

from my understanding of the situation: quamen/ Mr. Zenta was informed to ceased production of the later generations of o.g graveyards by the "family" ( in general sense as I'm not sure who specifically) after the untimely passing of Richard Zabzdyr.

I personnaly like it a lot too. But from a building point of view it's a real nightmare, because of that top tube. It's not really possible to make a notching as long as it needs to be.
The top tube needs to be bent by a roller bender with a theoretical center line radius.
It's just impossible to reach the exact curvature so I need to trace the resulting curvature and scan it in order to reevaluate the real center line radius in my CAD software. Then I need to modify the 3D model according to the real measured center line radius. After that I need to split the tube of the 3D model in order to obtain a flat drawing which will allow me to see the edges of the tube and then remove the material where needed...so much time consuming and of course you need to be very accurate...

For those who want to better understand that method, you can see the following link : http://www.forum-cao-3d.fr/post114510.html#p114510 (http://www.forum-cao-3d.fr/post114510.html#p114510)

His complete bike check is here : http://kulcle.net/bikes/mats.htm (http://kulcle.net/bikes/mats.htm)

The following handlebars have been made for Darrell, an american BMX rider.

It's Rizal's bike, the Malaysian flatlander.

I have no additionnal picture, except with a complete different setup...
I think remember the frame specs were the same than the slimfit ABT frame.

And the top bolt is really beautiful. But when you use a front brake I think the Odyssey design is better, don't you think?

That top bolt is more for brakeless use.

That being said, you just need the correct method to use that bolt with cable(s). First you need to locate in which hole(s) you would like to introduce the cable(s) after tighten the bolt. Don't connect the cable extremity to the brake. Remove the top bolt. Introduce the cable(s) in the correct hole(s). Tighten the bolt while rotate the handlebar & stem at the same time. Connect the cable to the brake, and voila !

hi, i dream of one day haveing my own custom frame, the thing is... i dont really know what i want, for example, wich dropouts should i chose? is it just about the looks or do diferent designs have pros and cons? and what about BB height?

is there a thread or website where i can read more about the diferent options?
Title: Re: PiR products part(s) gallery
Post by: DaddyCool on March 01, 2016, 11:02:51 PM
Hi thePOWERhour,
I would choose details like the dropouts depending on your experience and what friends suggest. For example the size has influence on the peg diameter you can use for different wheel positions. When you do a lot of back wheel tricks, the connection to the seat-/chainstays has a big influence on your foot comfort.
BB height is a difficult topic. Some riders prefer high BBs for clearance during upside down backwheel tricks, some do not like it for pedal hang five for example.
All geometry questions are really depending on the tricks you do, your preferences and your personal taste. The best way to get an idea is to try several different frames before you design your custom frame. But of course this is expensive...
But as long as you do not have developed a specific idea for your frame (in terms of details and geometry) after many years of riding experience, it does not make so much sense to try a custom frame.
On the other hand Malo offers custom frames of very good quality without too many special details for a very reasonable price (not much more than a regular frame). So you can order one and if you realise what you would like to change you can just order another one, depending on your financial situation of course...
You could just try one based on the frame you have with minor changes. But keep in mind that 5 mm or 0.5 can make a difference! So change the geometry not too much, otherwise you could be very surprised in the end.
I am very satisfied with my PiR frames.

that's a very good and interesting question.
I'm tryng to produce a document that would help my customers to make the good choices and decisions concerning the numerous available options, but there's really a lot of parameters and it's easier said than done.

That being said, I think the best is to have an idea of the overall shape do you want (specs included) and explain what you are really looking for. Then the frame maker will suggest the best compromise and most of the time the customer is happy...

Thank you Jan for your message !

Thanks for the info.
Do you mean the junction from the clamp area to the support tubes? It looks like what London Bikes is doing. I think it is a good solution in this area when it is done properly. And I have no doubt that you do it properly...  :)

Actually it's a slightly different kind of tubing connexion.
On the following picture, you have on the left the "traditionnal" London Bikes connexion and on the right, mine...

The last frame looks almost like Chase' frame. But the CS length tells me it is not for him  ::)

this is an interesting concept for a fork. Was it your or the customer's idea?

Hi,

Behind each parts I made, there's a little story.
For this fork, it was a special request for a very good customer and friend who asked me if it was possible to make a "double legs fork". He already ordered a twin cross bar handlebar and DTT frame, and that fork would match the other parts perfectly...

After receiving few sketches from the customer (see pictures attached), I started the CAD work.
After few hours of design, communication and modifications, the final drawing was done...

Yes that's a nice detail. I remember asking a lot of measurements (kind of brake arms, brakepads, rim width...), to be sure it works fine...

It has been a while since I haven't posted anything here, mostly since the Photobucket policy changed.
I recently noticed that they had restored the 3rd party hosting, so that all the pictures were displayed again, and that's a very good thing.

The following pictures show the latest PiR custom parts made.

I tried to only select flatland friendly parts.

Here they are...

Chase Gouin's frame project

Few months ago, I was in touch with Chase Gouin, concerning his prototype signature frame that was supposed to be made by Saint-Martin.
 Unfortunatly, that project has been canceled. At this time Chase explained me all the details of the frame he wanted, but also told me that in 15 years he never succeed to have his dream frame made exactly like he wanted.
 I wont go into the details behind the different stories he had with the different BMX brands and frame makers, but the truth is that he has really been unlucky...
 That being said, I wanted to offer him the dream frame he has always wanted.
 The problem is that Im a too small company to make that frame for free and thats why I asked for  the help and generosity of the BMX/flatland community.
In 1 month I succeed to reach the amount needed to make this project, thanks to all the contributors !

Few words of Chase himself :

"This is Chase Gouin. Malo has been kind and generous and thoughtful to take our design and gather money donations from just some of the many good people/riders out there so he could afford to build and provide it to me for free. As you see,i now have it in Canada and it is powder coated and assembled. This frame is beyond special to me because i first started to consider its overall concept about 20 years ago. The features and geometry are based on what my tricktionary is and  desires to be...which is ever expanding. Through the years there have numerous problems that got in the way of me actually getting it built...also because i was naive and uninformed at times. But now i have been fortunate enough to work with Malo and receive exactly what i wanted and what i feel i needed as i personally strive towards being in good enough physical and mental condition to maximize its potential  in my riding. These are pics of the main features and proof that i am now in possession of it. I chose a flat matte medium shade grey color.

amazing work, the bars look really solid
one question, aren't you worried about the first frame cracking due to the top+down tubes being welded together like that? reminds me of the v1 heresy's that all broke
Title: Re: PiR products part(s) gallery
Post by: jsteady on March 10, 2019, 11:27:20 PM
Fantastic work!
Title: Re: PiR products part(s) gallery
Post by: PiR products on May 09, 2019, 06:43:20 PM
Thanks for your comments jsteady and metalbmxer.

Concerning the Heresy look a like frame, I'm not even sure that the down & top tubes were completly welded to the head tube on their batch. I mean it takes really longer and a particular/specific chronology to weld properly the head tube connexion. You need to weld the down tube/head tube first, keeping unwelded the other extremity (BB side), in order to be able to introduce the top tube. If you don't do that, you just can't weld the complete circumferance of the tube. According to the way BMX frames are made by the Taiwanese company, I don't think they'll weld that kind of frames that way...When you know that seat tube/BB weren't even welded together on some KGB frames (that's whey they all broke in that area), it makes me think that the one I made will be stronger, because we take as much time as needed to weld custom parts properly. It's the same problem for most DTT frames back in the day, only 1.5 of the 2 tubes were welded to the head tube.

That said here are the latest parts :
