    framebuilding supplies webshops? recommendations?

    Hey everyone,

    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,

    fabian

    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

    almost every lug is made by Long Shen. I think Nova is starting to carry some models from a different manufacturer
