Hi weightweenies!

Just a quick & very short introduction of me: I'm Andrea 25 years old, from 2012 I started some many experiments with carbon fiber. I attended a course for frame builder in San Patrignano(2013). Then the desire to build carbon fiber frames in my workshop has grown more and more.

Here I attach some photos of my third prototype of Model A. Round carbon fiber tubes for about 850 grams of weight. The BB is a classic BSA.

Here some details of "Model A protoype"

Now I'm working on the 5th prototype and is a new carbon fiber model "Model S". The weight is around 860 grams in 54 cm measure (depends on layup and painting). In the next moth with the same chainstay I would to put the flat mount, so the model S prototype can be setup with road disc brake.

Other prototypes are coming such as a carbon saddle and a seatpost.

Will post more photos and news soon...

Hope you'll like it - any comments etc. are welcome!
Thanks for your attention

Nice! Looking forward to seeing more!

A question: Where do you source the cable stops for the internal routing? They look really clean.

Thanks to everyone!

@Marin the cable stops is made from thecnonline.it, it's a very good product but expensive. I've 3d printed some experiments to replace it. The prototypes works very well thank to self lubrification but I have to work on the aesthetically design.

Very good job. Next prototipe, calculate a bigger seat tube angle, this one looks too small for you.

It is the one thing I need to learn how to do is build a frame.

Looks like a very stiff frame.... Great work!

@micky great website (but contact page doesn't exist)

@soracabana yes! in this prototype I don't have calculate the 14mm of the bottom external cup of the headset :roll: So this little particular has changed the seatube angle. On the first prototype of "Model S",I didn't make this mistake and the seatube angle is 74°. The Model S in the first ride works very very well. Thanks to the thin seatstay the comfort is on the top.

Here the first photos on the Model S

@AJS914 With Model A I have ridden more than 400 km (with a 120km race on roads with many holes). Against all my expectations, the bike has a very good ride comfort. At the same time the stiffness around the bottom bracket is really good (my sensations).

ive spend some time at san Patrignano years ago, i still fondly remember the talk i had had with one of the guys at the lunch table, they asked why was i there, why would i eat with them, they said you can eat Nutella not the fake Nutella they use at san Patrignano.i told the fellas i did not have deep feelings for nutella or other hazelnut paste for that mather, how ever i pledged i would never buy anything else other then nutella and they approved!
till this day i have not bought anything else other than the real thing ! must have been the summer atum of 2003 maybee 2004.
great looking bike, great initiative but....you cant ride a bike with electrical tape instead of bartape !! you NEED to sort that out subito ! (-:

YEs! But I've assembled this prototype in the evening and the original bartape I did not like at all. So I proceed to electrical tape!
