Pardon me for reviving/hijacking this thread. A search on "bond, bonded, bonding" brought it up.

My thought was, would building lugged & bonded frames be a low(er) cost, less technically challenging method (as it would involve little or no brazing/welding and tricky tube mitering) for the hobbyist/novice framebuilder? Just buy lugs, tubing, cut latter to length and glue it up? (Leaving aside, for the sake of this discussion, the intricacies of geometry and fit.)

Though I never aspired to be a framebuilder, lurking here now and then out of mere idle curiosity has begun giving me "ideas".

It could just be cabin fever talking...

Youre right, it is easier, you just have to pay attension to cleaning and epoxys, just wondering if I sent lugs to kol klink? sent out about 15 sets so far, and even all the way to australia
