    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.

    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.

    Honestly I never considered it could be an issue, but you're not the first to mention it.

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

    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.
