Nice, I like that you are offering the four TT sizes.

Is the rear end length measured to the center of the dropouts or to the very end of the dropouts?

Looks nice, you should offer it in that lime green.

Be very interested to see this come to life, my only niggle is the integrated seat clamp im not a fan of but thats just personal preference.

Good work!

please explain the choice of these angles
 
7 mm thick dropouts is overkil by today standards (don't the makers use treated materials for frame parts nowadays?)
 
is it not possible to get something more inside tapered regarding the stays/dropouts connexions?
ie below some work from Pir

5 mm thick is sufficient. Also, the tapered dropouts are a must for todays modern rider. I would also recommend to make the rear end a bit shorter. 12.75 or so, center to center is good. Lastly, were you planning on including removable brake hardware? The 3D Pics appeared to have welded on guides & posts. Hope this helps...

Yes the brake are removable not welded to frame. Also the 3D drawing does not show it but the dropout area is tapered. On my 2D drawing the tubing size is small at dropout.  Thanks for input. More is welcome

I think the dropouts are 7mm thick due to the chain tensioners going THROUGH the center of the dropout

curious what the weight is?

I personally like longer CS, any frame I've ever ridden below 13 I've completely hated - no good for back wheel tricks at all. 13.5 like the Rek frame is good. I'm not sure about the 68 ST angle either, might make getting behind the seat more difficult for things like cliffhangers and my experience with the quamen bowls frame also makes things like hang nothings more difficult.

Metalbmxer is correct. We started off with 5mm dropouts when frame was first designed. What angle is all around good?  We will not know weight until frame is made. But I can ask manufacturer est weight.

Why are the seat stays, so long and extend up the top tube?
This material on the TT is thinner than the ST , creating a worse join.
Also the added material only adds to useless weight

The "truth" is, the probability that this frame actually ever makes it to production is around 3%.
