    Carbon Fiber Frame Project -help plz

    hey i've been looking into building a carbon frame so far i've been keeping up with many of the threads from other sites and have amassed a wide variety of info so far. Wanted to know if you guys had any info what so ever on

    -the threads of the guys building their own stuff and how they did it
    -what type of carbon sheets or prepregs to buy

    the homebuilders that have had some success were:

    I think you should do a search there have been other threads, I think. One thing you might also search are the bamboo threads. Guys who built in bamboo often had carbon experience first. The joinery schemes are similar.

    Have you read http://www.sheldonbrown.com/rinard/howibuil.htm yet?

    And on a whole different level of complexity, here's an all-carbon-fiber human-powered-vehicle:

    not just the frame, but the seat, wheels, handlebar, fork, and the entire shell are carbon. 25 pounds total.

    There is a good carbon fiber frame building tutorial on instructables. I just read it yesterday and was pretty inspired to try it in the future.
