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.

Thanks for sharing Daza. You do some fine work!

What's your preference for things like bottom bracket drop and head angle and fork offset? Looks fairly standard but not positive.

Keep going...

after all the millions and millions of frames that have been made over the decades
it has all been sorted
there is no magic numbers that some one is yet to discover.
Race bikes, 65 to 75 drop pending crank length
HTA generally 73, FR 45mm {small bikes , 72/50**
Touring bikes, low geo trail, 72/65 , BB 75 to 80.
I do not believe lower BB has any effect on handling! but it sure can scare the crap out of you when you scrape a pedal.
I will add
plot the rider's position first and then draw the frame to go under the rider.
I get so tired of people doing it the other way.

Cheers

Thank you for that wisdom, Dazza.
That may be the most useful information I've read on this site.
