    May be of interest, new albums of how I do my frame work

    rearranged and new stuff added here

    Lots of photos in albums of my way of cooking lugs and dropouts and fittings
    any questions?
    it's steel
    it's lugs
    let the others get on with the madness

    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.
