Just Hit me that would be the case as I was reading it back...Ta! Ben...


It's not gospel or necessarily true, I just made it up and it seemed to fit. the 'L' had me thinking for a minute though.

I don't think those are fillets, but TIG welds that have been chemically peeled and sand blasted?


Deffo Brazed! (So says my Frame Builder Mate) The TIG Welds are the Front Triangle & the Bottom Bracket junction joining the Chain Stays. Seat Tube & Seat Stay Junction as per the pic are Fillet Brazed, as are every boss for cables/droputs/cantilever hanger bridge.

No word yet from Framebuilder so no progress on any building...Just a random few Pics of some tyres I picked up. Managed to get 2x Pairs.
Ritchey WCS ZMax Kevlar 1.7 Flavour. Nice & Skinny. Really liked these BITD. Used to Race on these, memories of Midlands Series dry, dusty tracks over at Astley over by Stourport.

Looking at the BikePro Site Frank, their table listings for WCS are all Kevlar.

It would be a bit odd having their top of the top tyre using steel bead ;)

'WCS' means the best we do. Our race stuff.

The catalogues are here
