Inspired to create a profile after long lurking... I'm throwing my hat late into this build off, with barely a month to go! I've recently finished my second -from scratch build- (both documented at endless-sphere, since I made them electric. However, this seems more the right forum, since it needs to be a good bike before it can be a good e-bike!) Each of the first two took about a year to complete. My goal in entering BOTEN is to motivate myself to pick up the pace a bit. Since I'm on a moratorium from buying new raw materials, I looked around my shop and put some stuff together: the crankset, a rigid, disc fork & quill stem and some disc rear dropouts from Nova round out the bike specific parts. Well, the wheels too. The frame will come from assorted steel SCRAP, or maybe 'leftovers' is a better word: 3/4" round 4130, 3/4" square mild, 1/2" round mild, and some 1/2"x 1" rectangle. Still working some of the details, but the photos should show you my thought process so far. Wheelbase is 48". Head Tube angle is 30*. Aiming for an effective seat tube of 20".
