Hello!
Hope it's still not to late to enter the competition.
I've always liked lugged frame bicycles and wanted to build one myself, but not a classic road frame. So I've come with a design

Got some tubes and lugs

I assume the hole in the top tube is for some kind of shifter?
Actually not I have to close that hole. I've used a piece of tube to make kind of lug for the seat stays. (Thin tubes that I was able to bend at home) The shifter will be placed on the middle tube.

Which wheel / tire combo did you use for this build? I like the look! And nice work on the lugged frame as well. Your frame jig looks like it has unique design as well, is that your creation?

The rims are 26 x 65mm wide. And the tires are schwalbe fat Frank 26x2.25.
The jig is the jiggernaut jig, you can get it online from flatpackfoundry.(I'm not getting payed for the advertisement)[emoji2]
