    Naked Bike Pics

    Hi There -

    I've been posting on a couple of forums since I'm so excited about my new frameset from Sam Whittingham (Lance Armstrong bought his show bike at NAHBS 2008).

    He took some photos and so I wanted to post them for you to see. It's my interpretation of a "club racer". I don't race, but wanted a comfortable bike for longer rides with the option of singlespeed/fixed down the road. The Paul's dropouts with a derailleur hanger makes it versatile. The custom stem and fork add to the classic look.

    Cheers

    Dave

    Got the frame today - spent quite a few hours loosely assembling the parts - I'll do a proper build when I am well-rested!





    What do you think?

    Cheers

    Nice. I see you are going with black handlebars even though you are using a chrome-colored stem. I may do the same, despite having reservations early on.

    Very, very nice. I saw Sam's bikes at NAHBS, including the one Lance bought. They were all drool-worthy.

    The handlebars are almost new from another bike. This bike now has black bar tape as well, although I do have a new set of silver bars for it!

    Glad you guys like it!

    what a coincidence, I talked to sam today for the first time, inquiring about some ss couplers, id never heard of his bikes before, sort of...Last night i stumbled on this post, and not being familiar with naked bikes i thought it, as the first picture would seem to the unreading/unknowing, a thread about frames not yet built up but painted, looked at the pics and close the window...hehe silly me, small world.

    I dig the funky rear dropouts. I wonder how hard it is to get a wheel out of there?

    Nicely finished bike.

    Not super easy. Went for a three plus hour ride - felt amazing! Loving this frameset...

    Well, I just got some Chris King headset spacers in green - just need to get around to taking some new photos. I think it's a nice accent... I had the option of getting a threaded headset and quill stem, just felt like a modern touch.

    I was just going to ask about this... horizontal dropouts with a derailleur hanger /or hortizontal drop outs on a cross bike... are there any dangers or does the horizontal dropouts allow for better chain tension/safety ?

    Nice Bike! The fender mounts appear quite prominent in the photos, are you planning to mount fenders?

    I'm starting to design a frame myself that I am planning to have Naked build.

    At the moment I'm not planning to mount anything yet. I did insist on having them just in case. They don't really stick out when looking at the complete bike.

    Thanks for the nice comments.
