I stumbled across this forum on the day it opened and I couldn't be more happy at is existence. I'll be here daily reading the golden nuggets from some incredible framebuilders.
I'm sure there are lots of closet wanabee framebuilders out there who, if everything (or sufficient things) were in place would love to build a frame. Are there any minimalist framebuilders out there who could give us at least a ray of hope by listing what's really necessary to build a frame?
Yes I know that probably the best single resource (other than kidnapping Sachs) would be the Paterek manual. I do have his early one which I bought in 1991! I've been thinking about this too long eh? I wonder if he takes trade-ins?
