Again some news from me.
First of all I hope it's ok if this topic is in the Introduce Yourself / Gallery section, otherwise the moderators can move it to Road or anywhere if it would be better,..no problem for me at all.
Anyway, here already some new photos, from a new combo, for a forum member
UD, 27.2mm x 380mm, 150g
Really a lot of things happening to me these days..I was also in the Slovenian biggest cycling magazine where they presented my work and it was really nice!
After that quite a lot of people (also from our Slovenian carbon industry) wrote to me and in the future I'll have some meetings with some of them. We have some great companies here in Slovenia like Elan, Akrapovič, PipiStrel, Seaway,..and hopefully some day I'll be a part of a company like that, or maybe even make my own someday.
And today I just get some new moulds for the PT4-NANO project.
It's for the 1 1/8 - 1 1/4 tapered headset. I'll use drop-in bearings and the groove for the headset will be made with carbon fibre
It's for a headset like this:
Of course I'll use a tapered road fork, in my case it will be EDGE/ENVE Composites:
Later I'll remove the paint that it will match nice with the frame etc.,.. by the way, I have 2 of those forks, and one is for sale. First I wanted to make two frames, but at this moment it would be better if I sell one fork because my financial status.
This project will also be tube-to-tube, but with a new design and procedure, much improved. Why not monocoque? Well, I really wanted to make it like that, but tube-to-tube is still better for me, because I can make with one set of moulds any geometry and I also have more control during the work if I make it tube-to-tube. And if something goes wrong it's not that bad if it's only one tube, instead of a whole frame. I also constructed a new way of the procedure and really want to realize it, because the product will look like a monocoque frame - with clean lines, but still a custom made frame,..anyway, I'll keep you updated about my progress
