Getting close to finishing up all of the frames that were back logged. A set of racks and one more frame and I am caught up and will be back on a better time frame for the new projects that are being lined up(**hint: now is a good time to get in the queue**).
This one here was great project that I tried out a lot of new things, so I am very pleased to share it with y’all. It was a big departure from the relatively traditionally styled frames I usually do. The starting point of the project was actually a carbon fork made by ENVE with a disc brake tab and a tapered steer tube from 1.5″ to 1.125″.
This set the ball rolling for all kinds of design decisions. I worked closely with the future owner, Jayson, who is an architect by profession and a highly competitive and seasoned bike racer. Each element of the frame was studied and discussed in depth to provide both the most practical(since this will be a race machine) and visually stunning, perhaps even lust worthy, solution.
