I've been singing the same old song as a lot of people IMHO...one day I'm going to build my own frame...yada yada. Well to make a long story short....instead of just sitting on the toilet I finally shat. lol. I know your first frame is usually the worst and was going to just use the basic Nova Chromo OS tubing kit but went with something decent. I went with the Dedaacciai Zero Replica tube set. Then Long Chen long point lugs and Breezer style dropouts. I'll be taking photos along the way and have my trusty Paternek manual and some videos and the help of one fellow John Thompson just a few minutes down the road literally. Wish me luck!
