PSA - Framebuilder Supply - not just for Framebuilders

It's a small, local Portland Oregon company that's grown over the past few years. You can't throw a rock in Portlandia without hitting a framebuilder. Early on they delivered within riding distance by bicycle, now they have local pickup. Of course they ship worldwide. From them I get my flux, filler rods, garnet cloth, small bits, fork crowns, Columbus tubing...but they also have hardware that the non-framebuilder can use.

Seatpost binder bolts in 5 different lengths for wholesale-like prices.
Bottom bracket cable guides
Dropout adjustment screws
Stainless steel brake cable clamps in 2 sizes.

Heck, order a few lugs just because it's cool to have a set on your desk to play with.

Thought I'd share that with everyone.

You scared me. Your post makes it sound like a framebuilder going out of business. Didn't know about these guys, but cool! Thanks! (Should have read your title a little more carefully.)

Now, if you can hit TiCycles, you've got a good arm. "You can't throw a rock in Portlandia without hitting a framebuilder." (Well, TiCycles is in Portland proper, but not Portlandia.) Fun (for me) that Framebuilder Supply is 4 blocks from Community Cycling.

Just bought the needed tubing for my latest build from Framebuilding Supply. I also use Nova as well because they are local to me and have recently just switched hands and I'd like to see them succeed.

Buy local when you can!

BTW, know any good powdercoaters in Sackatomato? I've got another thread going, trying to catalog ones that do a good job with bike frames...

They also make and sell several excellent bolt-on light brackets for rear lights. These are often available as cosmetic seconds for near giveaway prices.

Their stainless steel top tube housing clips are quite nice as well.

Got flux?

I see t-shirt possibilities. Cool website to browse through even if you don’t buy anything. I bought some stuff from Universal Cycles yesterday and was going to ping you to pick up for me but shipping was cheap.

Sorry, I really don't know of a good and consistent powdercoater. I'd love to find one. I'll check out your thread.

I’ll vouch for that. I love the dummy headset. Unfortunately, the 1" size is sold out at the moment.

I didn't see traditional horizontal road dropouts. Are they now a thing of the past? (What I really wish would come back are the long Campy's from the 1960s. Fix gear cog choices! I'll never ride track ends on the road,)

Yeah a little surprising because it seems to me there’s been some resurgence. You’ll see them on the newer “urban warrior” type bikes for flexibility with single speed, IG hubs or geared builds.

Tony at Framebuilder Supply says they hardly sold any. Nowadays you can get these, however:



If you don't want to use them as plug style, a hacksaw and file will make them slot style.

or howabout traditional dropouts period. Plug style seems to be the present and the future.

If what you mean by "traditional" are slot or tab style, those are plentiful, as long as you don't mind vertical dropouts. Really though, the one thing I wish all of my vintage frames had were vertical dropouts. Set it and forget it, when I stand and stomp I don't have to worry about the hub sliding in the dropouts and jamming the rear wheel because I didn't clamp the QR tight enough, and if you have fenders, horizontal dropouts make a nice even fenderline sometimes difficult (and here in the PNW, it's all about fenderlines!)


tab style dropout

Campy 1010's (THE standard from BITD) can still be found on eBay.

I’m ok with vertical dropouts and I see those commotion NOS with the offset. I should scrounge a few sets of tabbed dropouts in order to live out my fantasy of C&V framebuilder😉

I suggest you upgrade to thru-axles if you really want that assurance.

Every braze-on on this Raleigh Twenty (excuse the in-progress picture) - plus the headtube - came from Framebuilder Supply. I'll always support a business that delivers to the post office on a cargo bike!




I wish they carried carried more variety in cable guides, but that's the only suggestion that could make them better than they already are.

They're out there. You can buy super high quality NJS track dropouts from Nagasawa in Japan. I'm sitting on some Campy ones, and others as well.
