damn that looks good I like how streamlined the WTP looks. nice attention to details with the Ti bolts too. Definitely strong enough with the rollcage rims too

Thanks Metal. I do really love this frame and was inspired by Stephan Kornely and Waldemar after we had a session in their spot. This is the old one btw.  :D


Thanks Anthony. It depends. I am using the regular button bolts with 10 mm size for the front. If you prefer the type of Bolts for rear. Yes it does matter. I believe they have three different options. One is for 10 mm dropout (same I have), 10mm to 14mm for pegless and 10mm to 14mm for one who run pegs. But I do believe, it holds enough when you use the bolt type intended for pegs.   :beer:

That is one beautiful bike you have built. How tall are you? Only reason I ask is Im wanting to get back into riding flat/street but Im 61 and the era I used to ride was way different than it is now.

Thanks Oschoolnb. Actually it is funny to say, that I am just 55". But occasionally use this for a little session only and strolling. Been dreaming to collect one. However, what I do have for riding is shorter but not short enough which is 19"tt Heresy. Been eyeing on shorter and midschool frame like Sickchild 18.25"tt Metro or Instru and willing to swap if anyone has still any of these frames around.  :beer: :D

@rizalflatlander: I'm also 5'5", and I'll tell you from experience that anything under an 18" top tube is too short! I'm tearing down my current ride right now because my knees are literally banging on the bars as I pedal. And I'm running 140mm cranks! I plan on jumping up to a 18.5 or 19 juat for leg room.
