advice on tubes, lugs, and dropouts
For 20 years I have been fixing, riding, competing, cuting, welding, commuting and assembling bicycles, but I had never built my won bicycle frame. I would like to build the frames of the bicycles I will ride and I want to start by a lugged mountain bicycle. I am a small and light fellow, 1.63 m height, 54 kg weight and my aim is a light frame for a hardtail mountain bicycle less than 10 kg. Therefore, I am here to ask your help on what pipes, lugs and dropouts should I buy for my first project, as well what company should I order these components.
