I did metalwork as an upper school child and to put it mildly, I was seriously crap, I had had to fight tooth and nail in a catholic school to get them to allow a girl to do it, I was so embarrassed to have to admit that I was a complete failure, if you gave me 3 years I'd never be able to make a ridable frame never mind a successful one :oops: I so let the girls down :roll: It cannot be just a man thing, she say's hopefully. I really challenge Dave Yates to make me build a workable frame, he'd loose so badly :facepalm: I admire anyone who can build their own frame, I'll be a model if the frame came free :D

Those stays and dropouts on the Nivachrom OR are beautiful

Thanks, Taffy... I've still got that frame if you're interested. 17", 22.5 top tube... :wink:
The stays are 16mm single tapered down to 11mm at the bottom, with Henry James stainless dropouts. They're beautiful, plug fitting things from a small US maker, don't see them much over here as you have to buy them direct from the US.

All the best,



Do you accept kidneys or chiddlers? (maybe cake?)

A nice long top tube on a frame that size hmmm..

Do it! I built this retro style frame a few years back at Ubi in Ashland, Oregon. It's a great feeling to ride your own bike.

The bars are Ritchey's.

Thanks, I tried to use as much Italian components I could. Most parts are Italian except for the tires,tubes,fork crown, bars and spokes. Rims are Campagnolo Zark and the tubing is a mix of Columbus and Dedacciai.
