That's a great way to describe it "purposeful ugliness". I just love these bikes. They have that "it" factor. I wish Bre would make a resurgence into the frame building business.

I would love Bre to come back as well but maybe it would be better to join an established group of people to add additional expertise.

I've been discovered! 8)

I usually don't post much but thought It would be appropriate to introduce myself since this was brought up. Nice to meet you all. I'm Du. I'm a mech. engineer. I spend almost all of my free time tinkering. it used to be with cars, lately it's been with bikes. I get a ton of inspiration from this blog, the level of knowledge here is crazy and I thank you all!

As for the Rue, I'm working on a 2nd round of weight reduction and i was planning on posting it here to introduce myself. It wont be anywhere near as crazy as Gum's Crumpton or Donald's rue etc but it'll be sub 10, maybe sub 9. There isn't anything too exotic or extreme going on with the build and that's where I wanted to go with it (makes it VERY cheap compared to some of the colossus builds on here).

i do custom parts here and there and I usually throw em on my Chinese FM028 bike, my "prototype" bike. I'm hoping to have every piece of component on that bike be of my own design and manufacturing by the time I'm done. It's a slow process when you don't have your own machine shop though.

list of notable projects: http://www.the-climb.net/2011/12/project-log.html

Thanks again for the nice comments!

Gum: There was a Ruegamer Ti/Carbon frame listed for sale here which I bought. It should arrive within this week hopefully! :) But customs sometimes holds on to the parcels for up to 3 weeks.. :(

Sub 10/9 sounds pretty awesome to me. Look forward to seeing the Rue and your own components.
Great stuff, welcome

Du......Yang? FM028. I have 2 of those and have put 3 friends on them too. Very decent handling bike for the $$. So much so that I built one for my younger brother and he loves it (and he is fussy as anyone in the world!)

Get your self a bag of #06 orings instead of heat srink for your cable protectors much cleaner look.
Very nice bike by the way!

Nope, my last name is Dinh. And yes! I'm glad someone else feels the same way about the Fm028 handling, it handles great! Great frame to go crazy on without any remorse.

And as for the O ring, i've never thought of that. Seems like a great idea, i will try it next. Thank you.
