Finished (almost)














You saw it here first - just waiting for the new back wheel so I can fit a brake. Naturally Hope Technology hubs, headset, seatpost and maybe soon stem and brakes (also made in Lancashire - they are 20km from me) . UK made Middleburn cranks. And not forgetting Italian tubing!

Under 16" chainstays in the photos.

Time to go ride - do I trust my brazing?

Don't look too closely..... They did not do a good job of the powder coat. I should also have smoothed some of the joints more.

OK for a first frame. I already have the design for no.2 (same length chainstays but not E-stay). But first there are some jobs to do at home. Need to go shopping for some more Columbus.

And the blanks for the Middleburn cranks are forged in Italy!
