@ NiFTY thank you so much! That really means a lot.

@ jever98 Boron fiber gives the advantage of having massive strength under compression when compared to carbon. The top tube and seat tube are places I typically use it. It does have the disadvantage that its extremely hard to work with, only comes in 6" wide unidirectional tape and is very expensive. There is much to get into about the properties so here is a link to the manufacture of the material. They explain the advantages better there if you want to take the time to read.

Benn a while since I posted but things have been really busy around here. Currently working on 3 different frames for customers right now. Here is one in the Junction lay up phase right before final cure.

Here is the bike all finished up and built. Its a tangerine orange candy from House of Kolor with a silver pearl sprayed on top. Its extremely hard to capture in photos. These are just a few cellphone snaps. More coming soon.

Thank you everyone! Here are some shots of the TDF bike going through paint. The "TDF" logo is hand cut from woven fabric. The yellow for the logos is in the Ferrari yellow to match the customers car.

Love it!! The fabric details or just the black / yellow.

Are you still making attempts with the honeycomb tubes? See you offer the option on your website. Have any idea on gains?

Here is the TDF bike in the studio. The paint is extremly thin on this. The total paint adds only 8 grams to the entire frame including the painted yellow logos. The frame/ fork combo is well under 1000G ;)

Great work as usual. The yellow stands out and looks very nice. I really like the stealth TDF too.
