    Fillet brazing is the hottest-looking framebuilding method IMHO. Filed-down welds are also fine by me, but some say it weakens the weld, so let it be fillet.

    +aliens. Fillet brazed frames make me want to pour chocolate sauce on them, just to watch it flow over those curves... Maybe that's a bit to personal.

    I used to be all floored by crazy lugwork, and have dreams about curly stay Hetchin's...
    Not no mo, it seems. Something so sublime about the fillet. And, correct me if I'm wrong DW, but that **** ain't easy.
    When I learned more about frame building, I learned, like in everything else I do, that simple and clean is usually best. Victorians are fine, but I'll take a Shaker saltbox any day.
    I didn't come here, and I ain't leaving.

    In a fillet braze the braze material forms a joining structure called a fillet...what 128 said.

    Fillet is to "round off". The tubes are cut to fit eachother, a filler material is used to join them, and then the weld is smoothed down to appear as the tubes are joined as one.

    Is it just me, or are there too many cables on that bike for it to be a singlespeed/fixie?

    hey don, i know you're frames start at 2k, but do you work with true temper? could you thrown an s3 shaped downtube on an ox platinum frame, and would using a shaped s3 top tube as a downtube be detrimental in any way? and how much (in the ballpark) would something like that set me back? just curious...if that's something we don't discuss in the forum, feel free to pm me or something.

    thats weird, i thought that this was a website called bikeforums.net and this was a subforum about single speed and fixed gear bicycles, but figured people on it would have an interest in bikes in general. not to mention the thread is about welds...
