my prototype frame
« on: July 31, 2005, 11:17:51 AM »
Yo this is just something i worked on at University here in england.

here's the specs:

19 inch toptube
13-14 rear end
press fit BB for profiles
two part downtube
74.5 head angle
custom dropouts for G-Sport hubs (obviously if it went into production this would be and option not a standard)
integrated seatpost with expansion slot pre-machined, internal diameter is 25.4 so if it's too low cut that sh*t off and stick a regular post and clamp on it. Job done.

Material is T45
Weight is 5 pounds dead.

what do you think?

Hi logan,

first question: are you the guy on the photo ?  :beer:

5 pound = ~ 2,3 Kg that's cool.

Do you have a photo of it built up ?
Euro BB would be better in my opinion.

Just as some ppl @ PedalBMX pointed out, this frame looks too much like Dividual's...

How's it ride?

What else have you got in the works?

I'm messing around with frame design as well and just getting hold of some T45. Any tips?

Cheers bud.
