First time builder and I tried looking in to the forum, but did not find exactly what I was looking for.
I am a mechanical engineer at University of Washington, and have access to the machine shop. Any suggestion or critique is welcome.
Here is what I have in mind so far:
Building a rode bike.
Frame : http://www.cycle-frames.com/bicycle-...CS-and-SS.html
Bottom Bracket : http://www.cycle-frames.com/bicycle-...PER-LIGHT.html
Steerer tube : 1 1/8"
Seat tube length: not sure
Drop out : not sure
Head tube size : not sure
Fork : not sure
1, On cycle-frames, they gave me a choice of 31.8 mm or 36 mm for head tube diameter, which one do I need to chose to fit a 1 1/8" steer tube. On the side note, is a 1 1/8' steer tube size a good size?
2, What is a common/good drop out fork type dropouts.PNG
3, Suggestion on forks would be awesome
4, What are some good sites that sell bike frame building material and frame building information.
Thank you for reading
