Number 1, finally..
Finally done with my first frame, so I thought I'd share. In all this probably took me 2 years but I think it was worth it.
the head badge suggests you are off and running .. 1st Julie, next the world !

Congrats. I do wonder if the stay tops will graze your thighs. Andy.
Maybe it's my chicken legs, but no problems there. I actually finished it this spring, painted it in clear, and put around 1000 miles on it before having the final paint done, so all is well.

They would graze mine but, I have big track sprinter legs. I like the look of them either way . Congratulations!

Reason: slight tweak
I think that's mainly a problem if you go for "French Fit", i.e. a frame that's too big
Yeah, I could see that with a low seat and big legs. Going to try a fastback style on my second (wife's frame) and see how that works out.
