framebuilding supplies webshops? recommendations?
Which framebuilding supplies webshop has the widest selection of lugs and tubing / the largest offer? Any recommendations?
So far Ive been browsing through ceeway.com, and they seem to have a rather large selection of lugs, but I still find it hard to find lugs which fit the geometry of my upcoming build.. ..they have just one lugset which would fit, but Id like to compare a couple lugsets and then choose..
So what Ive been wondering, is there a framebuiling supplies webshop larger than ceeway, or just one which has a lot of lugs?
thanks for all replies and recommendations!
have a great day,
Most lugs will need anywhere from some to extensive modification for any bike. Ceeway, Nova, Henry James, Bikelugs and Bringheli are the usual players.
you have 1 degree of play in most lugs before you have to blacksmith them. The lower head lug is the worst, usually
pretty good list and links to the usual suspects from here;
Okay thanks guys, will check these out =) ..
.. and, from all those lug makers / sellers, who do you think makes / sells the best quality lugs?
almost every lug is made by Long Shen. I think Nova is starting to carry some models from a different manufacturer
Henry James is US made, and great folks to work with especially for newbies.
