good morning ,
as mentioned Im thinking, planning , thinking more , pondering ... of doing up a frame for myself. the bazing /soldering ... is no problem.
ive done a bunch of metal work in the past but never built a bike frame.
also Im afraid to try one as I may like it, did the same with fishing rods I didnt like factory rods so I started building my own. I make very fancy custom fly rods now and started selling them but it was getting to be too much like work so I stopped except for an occasional rod through word of mouth.
I have short legs /long torso ,My 50 CM cross check frame is too small except the SO height.
1) Since I need a sloped top tube would it be cool to do lugged construction on everything but the top tube?? may not be the best look
im thinking alignment would be easier using lugs first time for most of the angles???. [/B]
2) are lugs available for slope top tube fabrication,? I m under the assumption they are not?
Id prefer to work with lugs and silver solder if I could.
