Is it just me, or does the bottom bracket area of this frame look really lean (not very reinforced)?
Let us know how stiff it feels when sprinting after the bike is built.
the wrap is tapered and is over .080" thick at its thickets point. 16 plys of IM 118GSM material there. but as others suggested, it is the tubes that flex, not the joint.
i like the taper and its ability to distribute a heavy load as opposed to dropping off and creating a composite variation of the dreaded "stress riser". and it looks nice
always nice to hear from you on the forum...
what is your opinion on filament wound tubes - because if the tube is taking the stress to bending/twisting, dont filament wound tubes do better in this type of scenario?
also have you done any bikes or used hexcel IM10 fiber - seems to be the best IM fiber out in the market today.
but your bikes, keep getting better and better. i saw an interview where you said it was your main goal to continue doing custom bikes because you can continue to improve, to make every bike better. i applaud that.
