Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Dodicci Special CG Project

Hi, my name is Artur, I'm from Latvia. I'm not Dodicci Special owner. But I really like this frame a lot. Closer to the point, I'm 3d artist and here is my portfolio, who are interesting: http://arturborovik.com/ as You guys can see, I specialized on automotive and interior works, also 2d stuff. And now I working on bike with Dodicci Special frame, I'm using 3ds max to model it. For now I have only geometry of 59cm big frame but still have problems with some dimensions. So I hope you will help me guys with 'em.



The geometry which I have for now you can check in attachment. So my question is:
  1. How long Head Tube is?
  2. What Chainstay angle is?
  3. How big Wheelbase is?
  4. What diameter of tubes are, especially for diagonal Down Tube?

Any possible information will be helpful! Also if you guys are interesting, I can post updates on my project in this thread. Thank you, Artur B.

I already do that and they didn't help me with that. They pretend that I didn't tell 'em that I need info, they only tell me this:

Hello Artur!
Thanks for getting in touch first of all!

Our DODICI SPECIAL frame is built with DEDACCIAI tubes custom made for DODICI.
To calculate your ideal size i need to know your inseam measurement and height in cm.


If you want to do a totally customized frame (choosing angles and lenght of the tubes) it will have an overprice of 200 euro, and it will take a lot more to get built (around 4/5 months).
If you want to choose this way, send me a complete geometry design, i will send it to the builder and ask him if its possible or not.
And my question in email was almost the same as I ask you in this thread! Don't know why he start to tell me about price!

They speak Italian and most likely aren't sure what you're asking.

Even if someone did have the same bike i highly doubt they would take the time to make all the measurements and angles. Accuracy of those measurements would be off anyways.

Send them what you have. Ask them to fill in the gaps.
