My Road Frame (part 2)

A few more shots of the blue road frame. Here's a good view of where the internal derailleur cable exits the chain stay.














I just love the angle and the curves in this one.















A good view of the bottom bracket details, the circle on the chain stay is painted in white.




This frame and some of my other work will be on display at the Chicago Bicycle Filmfest this weekend. For more info on the fest: http://bicyclefilmfestival.com/2008_site/chicago/

I really dig your drop-outs.......

That's some pretty work. What color is that?

Beautiful work! Those cutout dropouts look cool, but they are almost fragile looking.

I'm looking forward to seeing the photos of the painted fillet brazed 'cross bike with the biplane fork

The internal chainstay routing is awesome. Best rear drop outs I've ever seen.

It's "seascape blue". Thanks for the love on the dropouts, I agree, they are fragile looking, but I logged two seasons on a pair that I hand cut and which were probably even thinner. I designed them to work for a 953 bike which has very large minor end on the stays, then I don't need to cut back as much metal to blend them. I took an order for a 953 bke recently, so they will be put to the test, stay tuned for pictures.
