JIGLESS kit and method

hello there

I want to share with you a totally new concept for bicycle frame building method.

FOR THE BEST RIDE EVER YOU'LL NEED RUBBER BANDS, PUSHPINS AND THE JIGLESS





i have been working on the jigless project for about 3.5 years now (and riding the outcomes for about 25,000 km).


i will be happy to get insights and any other feedback http://igg.me/at/jigless/x/3947143 you might have regarding the [B]jigless[/B ]idea. please share and support if you find it interesting. thank you.


please visit my site links to get more info about my 2 wheels creations. tons of useful information about building your bicycle in a domestic fabrication site.


first bamboo frame project, keep on rolling - tag.me.not

boos 029 - tag.me.not

reprap bamboo fiber frame - tag.me.not

urban cruiser bamboo frame - tag.me.not

knock down bicycle bamboo frame - tag.me.not

Lugged & Fillet brazed frames can be built without Jigs , by getting the miters Right..

getting the miters right is not an easy task for non-professionals...

There is a reason why every one doesn't make their own frames, it's not as easy as some will claim.

Having said that- jiggles frame building was the earliest method and continues to this day. There's no mystery, no new claims. Been there and done that by hundreds (likely thousands of builders) before.

Regardless of the manor of holding the tubes in the correct positions (and even hose clamps or vee blocks on a drawing are jigs in the most basic sense) good care with all the rest of the job is needed to result in a quality, straight, reliable and nice handling frame. Using more involved tube locating methods only makes some aspects of building easier to do with less problems. Andy.

Don't forget the lugged and epoxy bonded early aluminum frames, as well as the early carbon fiber frames epoxy bonded with aluminum or titanium lugs. In fact many still use bonded dropouts.

Your "lego frame" looks interesting, although I wonder how well the 3D printed joints will last. Do they get some kind of a fiber reinforcement?

You also have to make sure your design takes into account that some parts such as the seatstays are generally under compression while other parts such as the chainstays and downtube are under tension (as well as varous torsion stresses).

Interesting side point is that the current issue of the Gougeon mag indicates they will not longer be selling their Al etch kit for 205/105/ epoxy. They are getting better bond strength results from Gflex epoxy. Which is easy to use. Info on Epoxyworks site.

the jig evolution



the improvised jig, using some generic metal parts (originally made for big wood constructions) and ikea table top.

parts based on local hardware commodity stores. cheap but hard to maintain frame center line

anyway, i build a fixie bike that serves we well for 3 years as a bicycle courier. about 10,000 km.

the lugs core, made of cork, were cut by japanese saw, using some simple geometric blueprint.
