French style randonneur builds.

Allen 10-25-09 06:54 PM

Are you using French bottom brackets too?

Six jours 10-25-09 07:53 PM

No, I used Henry James until they switched suppliers. Now I use Long Shen.

I wish I was a better photographer, because this frame looked a lot sweeter in person than in my crappy photos. Did the paint all in powder, which is why it's only a simple 2 color.

Some super nice frames you guys. Truly fantastic. Keep those photos coming.:)

Sweet bikes Nessism! You also have very good taste in saddles, I have been building a collection of those over the past few years so that I am never without one. Nice builds.

Here is the first and only mountain bike that I have built as a custom builder. Ian wanted to try out the Carbon Drive System's belt-drive and here it is.

This is my new touring bike currently set up as a 1x9 commuter.

Allen 11-06-09 01:55 PM

How tall are you and what is the size of those rims?

pschmitz 11-06-09 02:27 PM

Im about 5'9" tall. The rims are 700c (mavic A719) - the bottom bracket is about 23" off the ground (seat height ~51" off the ground)

I would provide some geometry, but all the plans are just hand drawn 1x1 on paper - which are lurking somewhere. :twitchy: I dont remember almost any of the exact measurements off hand.

Allen 11-06-09 02:32 PM

Right on. May be the only purpose built tall touring bike I've ever seen. Cool.

NoReg 11-06-09 05:37 PM

Cool! What did you use for chainstays?

How do you like the height? I had a touring bike with a high BB at one point, at least 10 inches lower than yours. Still gave me a feeling of being up high and seeing everything. I slightly resented it when it got really windy.

It does more than tour :thumb:

Are those 650s on the bamboo frame? Also, glad to see the dynamo/planetary geared hubs.

Allen 11-16-09 10:39 PM

700c x 32

Thanks, I'm a dynamo/IGH diehard.

New to the forum,but have been lurking for a while.
Been building frames for almost 2 years now.
Here are a couple of my builds;


First time loading pics here,so having some teething pains.


PaPa 11-28-09 01:50 PM

Built in June of '04, this one is affectionately called my "Beater", implying it's a daily a driver and NOT a parade bike. Weighs a smidgen over 11 kg.

Allen 11-28-09 04:00 PM

Johnny, those are astounding.

pschmitz 12-05-09 04:06 AM

^^^ fast in a wind tunnel - faster in a wind tunnel facing downhill.

slick builds.
