aNDREWS 26er

 if I had the time, I would put these seat stay gussets on every frame. The stiffness is really apparent switching from any other frame. This is a really long frame so it needs some extra strength. The slightly longer (5") headtube distributes forces better as well.

Here is one of the smaller top tubes coupled with a 1.5" down tube. I'd normally use 1.375" top and down tubes on a race frame like this. Should be about the same weight and stiffness though.


Brent's 9" bars. Still have to cut out dropouts for his fork.

Working on Ti while the Supertherm top tube shortage continues. I have some smaller 1.25" top tubes coming for some other projects but the normal top tubes have been more than seventy days on back order and still haven't even reached the supplier. Another option is a 1.5" Supertherm top tube.

Shawn bent the steerer of his pitchfork and the legs of his racefork. We'll see how well a Stout fork does.

As light as I can make it without using butted tubes. This one has a 7075 AL tube inside the steel steerer.
 Short rear 14.25" and a slack head angle 73*
I saw a similar one out in the wild last weekend. Fred said the short stays were decent on dirtjumps.
