Quite busy these days and the progress is quite slow, but here some new photos.
A few days ago I managed to glue all the tubes together, and before I glued also the seatstays I couldn't resist to just build it quickly to see if everything is like I want:
And some larger photos:
First I'll use a 3T Dorico Team seatpost (that I repainted) to make sure about my position and then I'll make also a combo for myself. Also for a combo it's quite a lot of work and before I'll manage to make it I'll use a SLR saddle that I already posted (the one that I covered with a new white leather), because I still prefer to ride my bike and will work with carbon when I'll have some free time
Anyway, after I glued all the tubes together the frame was prepared for the carbon reinforcements on the joints:
And also the rest of the work was already made during a night
, when I worked also on some custom projects..
Here is the frame, completely rough and still in process...I still have to laminate the upper headset groove, the brake bridge etc.,..
At this moment it's 886g and at the end it should have a bit more than 900g. But it's really stiff, you can already feel when you press the dropouts together that it's a bit stiffer (altough without the brake bridge) than PT3 and it's also a bit more reinforced,..it should be a really stiff frame, but still quite lightweight, like I want to have it! Can't wait to build this bike!!
