Framebuilders Thinking about a custom frame? Lugged vs Fillet Brazed. Different Frame materials? Newvex or Pacenti Lugs? why get a custom Road, Mountain, or Track Frame? Got a question about framebuilding? Lets discuss framebuilding at it's finest.

Seat Stay/Brake Bridge/Wheel Clearance on SS C/X Bike

I'm planning a frame build modeled vaguely on the old GT triple triangle design, effectively aiming to build a single speed road/cyclocross frame with clearance for 700c 35mm to maybe 38mm tires. If I use a primary braze to the Top Tube with a secondary to the Seat Tube and a shortened/higher placement but present brake bridge, will I retain overall frame integrity? Especially in the rear triangle, i.e., will the seat stays do the job? Please let me know.

Yup, that will work. What you're essentially doing is shortening your effective ss's and attaching them the same way that you see on many lugged frames. The primary brazes (ie, the one that carries all the load) will be the ones on the seat tube- the extra ss extending to the tt really does nothing but look cool........and make the frame a little harder to paint
